Honda issues recall for 2013 Accord, City and Jazz

Honda issues recall for 2013 Accord, City and Jazz

Now 21 people are known to have died due to faulty Takata airbag inflators.

Forty-two million vehicles are now part of a recall the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) calls "one of the largest and most complex in USA history".

Speaking of the vehicles, Honda would recall 510 units of Accord, 22084 units of City and 240 units of Jazz, all of which are manufactured in 2013, in India.

Back in January 2017, Honda Cars India had recalled 41,580 units in India, which included the Jazz, City, Civic and the Accord, which were manufactured in 2012. Globally, millions of cars have been affected.

USA safety regulators have released models from 14 different automakers that are being recalled to replace potentially deadly Takata air bag inflators. This is the eight round of recall for India and Honda has stated that it will voluntarily replace the front passenger airbag at no cost to the customers. The airbag inflator casing could break which might lead to injury to the occupants of the vehicle.

Takata's recall is the largest in US history, involving 19 automakers, recalling 69 million airbag inflators in 42 million vehicles.

Japanese airbags manufacturer Takata manufactured millions of defective airbags that it shipped out to vehicle makers around the world.

The problem with using ammonium nitrate to create a small explosion to fill airbags quickly in a crash is that the chemical can deteriorate when exposed to high humidity and temperatures and burn too fast, blowing apart a metal canister. Even after discovering this defect, Takata hid it from automakers fearing large penalties. The Japanese auto major has recalled cars under its global precautionary exercise to replace faulty Takata front airbags in these models.

If you own a City or a Jazz or an Accord, get in touch with the nearest Honda dealer to find out if your auto is impacted by the latest Takata airbag recall.
