Airbag Recall.

I work at Honda and this just announced.

As quoted:

"For Immediate Release

Statement by American Honda Regarding Front Airbag Inflator Market Actions

TORRANCE, Calif. – June 23, 2014 – Honda will voluntarily recall certain vehicles in the United States in three separate market actions to replace one or both front driver’s and passenger’s airbag inflators, free of charge. Two of the market actions are specific to states and U.S. territories with high absolute humidity. It is possible that front airbag inflators in affected vehiclesmay deploy with too much pressure, which may cause the
inflator casing to rupture and could result in injury. Honda is aware of one claimed injury involving a driver’s front airbag. Honda is not aware of any other injuries or fatalities related to these market actions. While the specific number of affected vehicles has not yet been determined, Honda estimates that the three actions will include a total of more than two million vehicles in the United States.

In two of the market actions, Honda is working in cooperation with the
manufacturer of the airbag inflators and NHTSA to recall certain vehicles in 10 U.S. states and territories (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands) based on the high absolute humidity levels common to those areas. While the states and territories in which Honda is conducting these actions are broader than those suggested by the manufacturer of the airbag inflators (Florida, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands), Honda has
chosen to expand the affected area for these market actions because of similar
environmental conditions in those areas.

Summary of actions announced today:
1) Recalling certain 2002-2003 Honda Civic, CR-V and Odyssey; 2003 Honda
Accord, Element, Pilot and Acura MDX models to replace the passenger’s
front airbag inflator, free of charge.

2) Recalling certain models ever registered in, or first sold in, geographic regions known for high absolute humidity (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii,
Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands) to replace the passenger’s front airbag inflator, free of charge.
Affected models are certain 2003-2005 Honda Accord, Civic, CR-V, Element,
and Pilot; 2003-2004 Honda Odyssey; 2003-2005 Acura MDX and 2005
Acura RL models

3) Recalling certain models ever registered in, or first sold in, geographic regions known for high absolute humidity (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii,
Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, Puerto Rico and the U.S.
Virgin Islands) to replace the driver’s front airbag inflator, free of charge.

Affected models are:
• 2001-2007 Honda Accord with 4-cylinder engines
• 2001-2002 Honda Accord with V6 engines
• 2001-2005 Honda Civic
• 2002-2006 Honda CR-V
• 2003-2011 Honda Element
• 2002-2004 Honda Odyssey
• 2003-2007 Honda Pilot
• 2006 Honda Ridgeline
• 2003-2006 Acura MDX
• 2002-2003 Acura TL and CL

Honda is announcing these market actions to encourage owners to take their
vehicles to an authorized Honda or Acura dealer as soon as they receive notification from Honda or Acura. Mailed notification to customers will begin in late-July, 2014. After that time, the most-updated available consumer information about these market actions will be obtainable at and or by calling (800) 999-1009 for Honda owners or (800) 382-2238 for Acura owners, and selecting
option 4"

More than likely, but call your nearest dealership, say that you are very concerned about the airbag recall. I wouldn't let it slide.

I just called and asked about it. They told me that this recall did not apply to my car in anyway.

2006 Accord Coupe v6. Just for anyone wondering. They ended the call with "thanks for calling though, we are just as concerned about your safety as your are."

They would still do the recall. Since it was either registered and/or first sold on the included state.

OR

If for example a California car moves and registers to an affected state. They will do the recall.

I don't like the fact that they are recalling cars based on geographic region, that makes no sense!

My car isn't showing up for the recall but my car was bought in TX and registered there for 6 or 7 years before we moved to Denver. When I talkied to the Honda rep this morning she said they haven't identified the vin numbers that are affected.

What does this have to do with 9th gens?

Also, how did they screw up? I read the article I bet if you dig deeper you will find the same story at all the manufactures mentioned. Honda investigated every incident, and followed the government protocol. Hell, they even tested unused air bags from salvage yards to find a cause. There is a lot of spin in that article.

If you are inplying that this was neglegence like GM did with the ignition switches, you are wrong.

I don't see whether 9th gen is affected or not. But in high humidity area, it may be a good idea to have the A/C running at all times.

Didn't know California is considered a high humidity area.
