Honda is adding about 350,000 vehicles to its recall list for Takata airbag-related recalls. Most of these vehicles were already under voluntary recall for consumers as a Safety Improvement Campaign the company underwent to improve its tattered image.
Honda anticipates that because of its voluntary recall efforts before, most of the 350,000 now under mandatory recall have already been serviced for the Takata airbag issue.
“It may take several weeks for Honda to determine the specific list and the final count of additional Honda and Acura vehicles included in the initial recall population of passenger side airbag inflators identified by Takata, but the mailed notification to registered owners will occur within 60 days, as required. Honda is announcing this action today to encourage owners to take their vehicles to an authorized Honda or Acura dealer for repair once they are able to confirm that their vehicle is included in one of these actions.”
Most of the recalled vehicles are 2005 model year Civic and Accord cars.
