Honda recalls cars over airbag error

Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) is recalling a total of 9,951 vehicles from its 2013 models of City, Jazz, and Pilot due to airbag inflator error.
In HCPI’s letter to the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the Japanese car company is recalling 8,520 units of Honda City Year Model 2013; 1,259 units of Honda Jazz Year Model 2013; and 172 units of Honda Pilot Year Model 2013.
HCPI said it is conducting a preventive measure campaign and would replace the passenger side of airbag inflator.
The company said the replacement would be for free.
Car owners with those aforementioned models can bring their cars to HCPI’s 40 car dealers and service outlets nationwide.
It said that the replacement of the airbag inflator would only take about an hour to complete.
“Findings show that an error causes the passenger side airbag inflator to be over-pressurized during airbag deployment,” HCPI said.
“The excessive initial pressure in certain cases may cause the inflator to rupture when the airbag deploys. In such an event, metal fragments can be propelled in different directions and may cause serious injuries to the vehicle occupants,” it added.
HCPI said there have been no known or reported injuries due to the said error on Honda cars sold in the Philippines.
