Honda recalls 22834 cars across various models in India for faulty airbags

Honda recalls 22834 cars across various models in India for faulty airbags

Honda Cars India Ltd (HCIL) has issued a voluntary recall for the 2013 model year Accord, City and Jazz.

A year ago in January, Honda Cars India had recalled 41,580 units of previous generation of Accord, Civic, City and Jazz models in India as part of a global exercise to fix airbags made by Takata.

The latest exercise takes the overall number of recalled vehicles, equipped with airbags manufactured by Takata, by the company to 3.13 lakh units in India.

Japanese airbags manufacturer Takata manufactured millions of defective airbags that it shipped out to auto makers around the world. 22,834 examples in total fall under this recall which will see Honda replace the faulty Takata airbag inflators.

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.

Honda has been proactive in recalling its cars in India to replace the faulty Takata airbag inflator.

The replacement will be carried out free of cost at the company's dealeships in a phased manner. The airbag inflator casing might rupture which may result in injury or safety risk to the vehicle occupants. Since Takata did not use a chemical drying agent in the airbags it shipped out, moisture caused some of the installed airbags to explode in cars without actually being triggered. Even after discovering this defect, Takata hid it from automakers fearing large penalties. Among the three models, 90 percent of the recall is for the Honda City, while 510 units of the Honda Accord and 240 units of the Honda Jazz have been affected.
