Statement by Honda Canada Regarding Passenger Frontal Airbag Inflator Safety
MARKHAM, Ontario -- June 23, 2014
Honda will voluntarily recall certain vehicles in Canada to replace the
passenger’s frontal airbag inflators, free of charge. In the affected
vehicles, it is possible that the front passenger airbag inflators may deploy
with too much pressure, which may cause the inflator casing to rupture and
could result in injury to the occupant. Honda is not aware of any injuries or
accidents in Canada related to this issue. The specific number of affected
vehicles in Canada is still being determined. Models recalled in Canada
2002-2003 Honda Civic, CR-V, Odyssey and Acura EL
2003 Honda Accord, Element, Pilot and Acura MDX
Honda is announcing these market actions to encourage owners to take their
vehicles to an authorized Honda or Acura dealer as soon as they receive
notification from Honda or Acura. Mailed notification to customers will begin
in late July, 2014. After that time, the most up-to-date available consumer
information about these market actions will be obtainable at
www.honda.ca/recalls and www.acura.ca/recalls or by calling (888)9HONDA9 or
Honda owners or (888) 9ACURA9 for Acura owners.
