Deadly Airbags Force Honda to remember 1.6 million vehicles



On Friday, Honda announced it's recall of 1.6 million vehicles due to potentially fatal Takata airbag inflators.

The move puts Honda six months ahead of schedule to complete its total recall of the 22.6 million problematic airbags in 12.9 million vehicles, The Associated Press reported.

"Honda announces this recall to encourage each owner of an affected vehicle to schedule repair at an authorized dealer as soon as possible," the company said in a statement.

"Replacement parts are available, all from alternative suppliers, to initiate free recall repairs immediately, and a spare car is available to the vehicle owner for the day of the recall repair or longer if a replacement part is temporarily unavailable," it added.

The recall also affects the Acura and Honda models from 2003 to 2015 which have already received replacement batteries manufactured by Takata in February 2017 or earlier and were scheduled for a recall.

Honda was forced to remember the cars equipped with Takata inflators because they have exploded with too much force and sent metal shrapnel to drivers, injured hundreds and killed 24 people.

About 70 million Takata inflators have been recalled in the cars of 19 automakers collectively, requiring the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to schedule their time.

For Honda, whose recalled vehicles totaled one of the highest, repairs or replacements have been completed for 83% of the cars. (RELATED: Honda remembers 772,000 vehicles in the United States because some airbags trigger Metal Shrapnel)

Cars affected include the following models from Honda: 2001-2012 Accord, 2010-2015 Crosstour, 2001-2011 Civic, 2002 -2011 CR-V, 011-2015 CR-Z, 2003-2011 Element, 2007-2014 Fit, 2010-2014 Insight, 2002-2004 Odyssey, 2003-2015 Pilot and 2006-2014 Ridgeline. Acura models 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.

The automaker encourages car owners, who will be notified by letter beginning around August 15, to schedule repairs as soon as possible.

Problems with airbags have forced the Japanese automaker to bankrupt, according to USA Today.
