Honda models being recalled in connection to global Takata airbag recall

A specific number of Honda vehicles sold between 2011 and 2014 may have a faulty driver's side airbag inflators as Honda Cars Philippines Inc. recently announced a voluntary preventive measure campaign.

The aforementioned defect has not yet been confirmed though HCPI insisted with the safety recall to ensure the safety of their customers. To date, there have been no reports of injuries or fatalities related to this defect.

The models affected in the campaign include the CR-V (2011), Jazz (2012-2013) and City (2012-2014). HCPI requests that all owners of the affected vehicles to contact any authorized Honda dealership for service appointment. Replacement and repair of the airbag inflator will only take one hour at no cost for both parts and labor.

Below is the list of frame numbers that are a part of HCPI's safety recall.

HCPI apologizes for any inconvenience the defect may have caused to their customers.

The advisory is related to the massive Takata airbag recall which has affected millions of vehicles globally. Honda decided to drop Takata as its airbag supplier in November of 2015, discontinuing use of their products in future vehicles citing that Takata "misrepresented and manipulated test data."
