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 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.
Two leaked spec sheets claim that both the 2016 Honda Civic sedan and coupe have a starting price of $18,680. Two engines are purportedly available: a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 165 horsepower and a 1.5-liter turbo four with 167 hp.
