Honda Expands Airbag Recall

Honda is adding nearly 105,000 vehicles to its U.S. recall of driver’s side air bag inflators that can explode with too much force.

The added vehicles include nearly 89,000 2008 model Pilot SUVs,11,000 2004 Civics and 5,000 2001 model year Accords, according to the Spokesman-Review.

Dealers will replace the driver air bag inflators for free. With the added vehicles, Honda has now recalled 5.5 million Honda and Acura cars and SUVs nationwide from the 2001 to 2011 model years because of the air bag problems.

The company said it will send letters to owners of vehicles in the expanded recall “over time” as replacement parts become available.
