Honda To Recall Almost 84,000 Vehicles In Canada With Dangerous Airbags

Honda on Tuesday recalled 1.2 million additional vehicles that were not included in the company's massive original recall of vehicles with defective airbags. An air bag inflator that was once considered safe is being investigated following a recent crash

"Honda initially became aware of a potential issue after a single-vehicle crash involving a 2004 Honda Odyssey", the Japanese auto giant said in a statement.

That moisture could lead to accelerated propellant degradation over time, leading to higher than normal inflator pressure upon airbag deployment, Honda said.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that millions using Takata airbags have been under recall.

These vehicles were already part of the largest and most complex automotive recall in USA history, covering at least 50 million Takata airbag inflators in 37 million vehicles from 19 manufacturers, according to NHTSA. The driver suffered an arm injury.

In January the British Parliament rejected May's deal by 230 votes , the biggest defeat for a government in modern British history.

Included are the 2001 to 2007 and 2009 Honda Accord, the 2001 to 2005 Civic, the 2002 to 2007 and 2010 and 2011 CR-V, the 2003 to 2011 Element, the 2007 Fit, the 2002 to 2004 Odyssey, the 2003 to 2008 Pilot, and the 2006 to 2014 Ridgeline pickup. Over 700,000 Acura and Honda cars were manufactured in Canada in 2013. Free repairs of the recalled cars would begin immediately in the United States with replacement parts made by alternate suppliers, Honda said.

Owners with any of the above vehicles can go to www.recalls.honda.com, and enter their VINs to find out if their cars are affected by the recall.

A NHTSA investigation into Takata air bag inflators remains open.

Honda, one of Canada's largest purveyors of automobiles, has just recalled more than 1.2 million vehicles across Canada, the United States, and Central America due to an airbag problem. They contained a moisture-absorbing chemical and previously were believed to be safe.

This set of recalls is part of the largest series of automotive recalls in USA history, which includes as many as 70 million vehicles recalled. The defect eventually spurred the recall of 37 million vehicles by 19 automakers.
