Honda re-recalls 1 mln cars in US with defective airbags

American Honda is once again recalling a million cars in the United States after it found that replacement parts to fix defective Takata airbags were also defective. The company said it will replace the defective airbags in 1.1 million Acura and Honda models ranging from 2001 to 2016 model years.

The issue was discovered following a crash involving a 2004 Honda Odyssey minivan in which the airbag inflator ruptured, injuring the driver’s arm, the automaker said in a statement. A subsequent investigation revealed that PSDI-5D inflators manufactured at Takata’s Monclova, Mexico facility experienced manufacturing process errors, the company said.

The recall affects models like Acura MDX, Honda Accord and CR-V. Millions of vehicles produced by automakers, including Honda, Toyota and General Motors, were recalled due to the risk its airbags can deploy with excessive explosive power and send shrapnel hurtling inside the car.
