the problem: the front passenger airbag may have been installed incorrectly during replacement of takata-equipped vehicles, which could cause it to deploy improperly in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury. it should be noted that this recall is separate from the latest takata recall expansion from january.
the fix: dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the passenger frontal airbag module assembly for free.
what owners should do: honda will begin notifying owners june 1. owners can call the automaker at 888-234-2138, the national highway traffic safety administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit nhtsa's website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
