Honda is expanding its passenger's side Takata airbag inflator recall to affect an additional 1.39 million examples of the 2001-2005 Civic and the 2003-2007 Accord. In total, 2.3 million of the company's cars need the repairs just on that side.


BMW, FCA, Ford, Honda, Mitsubishi All Affected

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is starting to announce the expanded Takata airbag inflator recalls. FCA has over 5 million vehicles affected worldwide, and BMW has over 420,000 in the US. Honda's expansion includes 350,000 more Civics and Accords.


Honda is recalling 340,000 vehicles in Japan for a further expansion of its Takata airbag inflator recall. A broadened campaign in the US is also possible in the future.


Honda and Daihatsu are adding 5 million vehicles that need their Takata airbag inflators replaced, but none of these are in the United States or Canada. It brings the grand total of affected vehicles in these campaigns since 2008 to about 36 million automobiles.


The father of a pregnant driver in Malaysia has sued Takata and Honda in US district court over the malfunctioning airbag that allegedly killed his daughter and unborn granddaughter.


Honda is recalling over 100,000 more vehicles to replace faulty driver's side airbag inflators supplied by Takata. The models include the 2008 Pilot, 2004 Civic and 2001 Accord.


Honda is launching a multi-million-dollar ad campaign asking owners of vehicles affected by Takata's faulty airbag inflators to report in for repairs.


Honda recalled 137 four-cylinder Accords and CR-Vs to replace engines that may have improperly torqued connecting rod bolts.


If things go poorly for Takata financially in the wake of its airbag recall, there's a small possibility that the company might need financial assistance from the affected automakers. After all of the trouble, though, Honda has little desire to support the supplier.


Takata is pushing hard to increase its global production of replacement airbag inflators to 900,000 units, while automakers begin looking elsewhere.


An automaker alliance, led by Toyota, is preparing to bring in former NHTSA head David Kelly to oversee its investigation into faulty Takata airbag inflators.


Fiat Chrysler, Honda And Toyota Re-Recall Models From The Early 2000s

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Honda and Toyota will recall 2.1 million vehicles built in the early 2000s for airbags that could deploy unexpectedly. These vehicles had previously been recalled, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has found that they are still defective.


Honda is setting aside about $425 million to pay for Takata airbag inflator recall-related costs. The change drops the company's profit forecast to about $6.1 billion for the fiscal year. Also, there's a possibility that another death might be linked to the faulty parts.


Her 2001 Honda Civic Was Recalled Days After Accident

A malfunctioning Takata airbag left a Florida woman paralyzed from the neck down following an otherwise minor car accident last year, according to a lawsuit filed Thursday.


Honda may move to one of Takata's competitors in what could be a devastating turn for the Japanese supplier.


Since Takata has decided not to take the lead concerning potential issues with its airbag inflators, the automakers have. Perhaps that's unsurprising, since it's the automakers, not Takata, that will take a beating on the dealership floor if consumers decide its models are a health hazards. The Detroit News reports that Toyota, Honda, General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, Mazda, BMW, Nissan, Mitsubishi and Subaru met in a hotel conference room near the Detroit Metropolitan Airport last week to sort ou

While Honda already announced plans to take its front driver's side Takata airbag inflator recall nationwide, the automaker has now officially reported on the number of affected vehicles and the specific models in need of repair.
