Honda Airbag Recall 2019: Affected Models And What You Need To Do

The latest Honda airbag recall affects an additional 1.2 million vehicles mainly here in North America including 84,000 units in Canada.


We can call it the Honda Airbag Recall 2019. An issue that we thought had been resolved is back. The recall affects 83,977 vehicles in Canada and includes both Acura and Honda models from 2001 to 2010.

The same Takata airbag inflator that caused so many problems five years ago is once again at fault. The replacement parts for the faulty Takata airbags are actually the problem here. As was the case back in 2014, a faulty inflator mechanism can lead to an explosion which would send shrapnel flying inside the car.

More specifically, Takata tried to save money by not fitting a special material that could help alleviate the impact of temperature fluctuation on the airbag inflators. This led to airbags exploding shrapnel as opposed to inflating. The inflators were replaced back in 2013 and 2014 with new parts supplied by Takata. Over 21 million vehicles were affected by this first recall.


What To Do If Your Honda Vehicle Is Affected By The Airbag Recall

The first thing that will happen is that you will be notified by mail in the next few weeks. You will then have to go to your local dealership to have the driver airbag replaced.

You can also check Honda Canada’s recall lookup page. You can also call Honda Canada’s airbag recall hotline at 1-877-445-7754. Acura owners, visit Acura’s recall page. Finally, you can also consult the recall page on Transport Canada’s website.

According to Honda, the required parts are available and the repairs should not be delayed. If you are worried about safety as you await your appointment or recall notice, contact the Honda hotline who will provide you with more information.
