Deadly airbags force Honda to recall 1.6 million vehicles



Honda announced on Friday to recall 1.6 million vehicles due to potentially deadly Takata airbag inflators.

The move brings Honda six months ahead of schedule to complete the full recall of the 22.6 million problematic airbags in 12.9 million vehicles, The Associated Press release.

"Honda announces this recall to encourage every owner of an affected vehicle to arrange repair with an authorized dealer as soon as possible," a statement said.

"Replacement parts are all available from other vendors to get started with free recall repairs right away, and a free rental car is available to the vehicle owner for the day the recall is repaired or longer if a replacement part is temporarily unavailable," he added.

The recall also affects Acura and Honda models from 2003 to 2015, which received replacement gas generators already manufactured by Takata in February 2017 or earlier and were earmarked for a second recall.

Honda had to recall the cars equipped with Takata air pumps because they exploded with too much force and sent metal shrapnel into the drivers, injuring hundreds and killing 24 people.

A total of around 70 million Takata air pumps were recalled in the cars of 19 automakers

For Honda, whose recalled vehicle total was one of the highest, repairs or replacements were completed for 83% of the vehicles. (RELATED: Honda Recalls 772,000 Vehicles in the US Because Some Airbags Eject Metal Shrapnel)

Among the models of Acura include: 2003 3.2CL, 2013 ILX, 2003-2006 MDX, 2015 RDX, 2005-2012 RL, 2002-2003 3.2TL, 2009-2014 TL, 2009-2014 TSX and 2010-2013 ZDX automaker urges car owners who will be notified by letter from 15 August to schedule repairs as soon as possible.
