What are the defects?
Airbag inflator: As it gets older, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can cause the airbag inflator propellant to degrade. If an affected vehicle is involved in a collision triggering the airbag, the metal inflator housing may explode/rupture under too much internal pressure.
What are the hazards?
In the event that a defective airbag inflator ruptures, metal fragments may propel out through the airbag cushion towards the vehicle rider, causing serious injury or fatality.
What should consumers do?
Owners of affected vehicles should contact their local Honda dealership or Honda’s Recall Contact Centre on 1300 559 846 or 03 9270 1348 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for a replacement airbag inflator free of charge.
