What are the defects?
The propellant wafers in some of the inflators may degrade over time, which could lead to over-aggressive combustion in the event the air bag is activated. Overly aggressive combustion creates excessive internal pressure when the inflator is activated, which may cause the inflator body to rupture.
What are the hazards?
In the event of an inflator rupture, metal fragments could pass through the airbag cushion material possible causing serious injury or fatality to vehicle occupants.
What should consumers do?
Once parts availability is confirmed, owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by mail in accordance with the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries Code of Practice and advised to take their vehicle to a Honda Dealer. The Dealer will replace the passenger’s front SRS airbag inflator, at no cost to the customer.
