Model Years 2006-2011

55 affected vehicles
Period Sold: 16 April 2001 - 24 September 2011
Defect Description: Takata airbag inflator: As it gets older, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can cause the airbag inflator propellant to degrade. If an affected vehicle is involved in a collision triggering the airbag, the metal inflator housing may explode/rupture under too much internal pressure.
Recommendations / Warnings: If owners of affected Honda Accord MY2002, 2005-2007 and Civic MY2006-2011 are advised their vehicle is under 'critical recall’, it is recommended that you stop driving the vehicle and immediately arrange for airbag inflator replacement as the vehicle has a heightened risk of causing injury or death. The critical recall category applies to alpha airbags and also includes other airbags specified by Honda.

Honda will offer to arrange for your vehicle to either be towed to the place of replacement or for a mobile technician to be sent to the vehicle (or some similar arrangement), so that you do not have to drive the vehicle in order to receive a replacement airbag inflator.
