Honda remembers 1.6 million cars over deadly airbag problems

ATLANTA ̵

1; Honda announced on Friday, it will remember another 1.6 million vehicles over defective Takata airbag inflators, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

After the car manufacturer's latest recall has been made, Honda says it would have made up 22.6 million inflators of about 12.9 million cars.

The Takata inflator scandal only began in 2013, according to CNET. The Japanese company reportedly used ammonium nitrate to create a small explosion and inflated airbags, but the chemical's reaction to high temperatures and humidity allowed the container to blow apart. Twenty-five people have been killed and hundreds more damaged by inflatables all over the world.

Several car manufacturers have since recalled millions of their vehicles to replace the defective inflators, including Fiat Chrysler and Acura. Honda was Takata's biggest customer.

"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 on Friday. "Replacement parts are available, ranging from alternative suppliers, to initiating free recall repairs immediately, and an available car is available to the vehicle owner for the day of the recall repair or longer if a replacement part is temporarily unavailable."
