Owners of affected vehicles should contact their local Honda dealership or Honda Australia directly via the website https://www.honda.com.au/recall.html to arrange for a replacement airbag inflator free of charge.
Consumers who are unsure whether they are affected can also use Honda Australia’s VIN look-up tool at http://www.honda.com.au/airbag or contact Honda on 1800 789 839 (Mon-Fri 8am-8pm; Sat 9am-5pm AEST) or contact their preferred Honda dealer.
Alternatively, consumers can use their registration plate number to check if their vehicle is affected by going to https://www.honda.com.au/recall.html
If your vehicle is fitted with a ‘critical’ airbag inflator it is imperative that you take immediate steps to have the airbag inflator replaced due to the significant risk of injury or death if there is a misdeployment in the event of an accident. It is strongly recommended that owners of these vehicles stop driving their vehicles immediately. Honda Australia can arrange for a qualified technician to travel to you and repair on site (free of charge) or organise a free tow to your preferred Honda dealer, so that you do not have to drive your vehicle to be fixed if you do not want to.
