Honda will voluntarily recall 1,252 model-year 2015 Crosstour vehicles in the United States to replace one or both of the side curtain airbags, free of charge. An error during the manufacture of tubing attached to the side curtain airbag inflator may result in the improper deployment of a side curtain airbag in a crash, increasing the risk of occupant injury. This issue is not related to other recent actions involving frontal airbag inflators. No crashes or injuries have been reported related to this issue, which was discovered through quality analysis at the inflator tube supplier.
