Honda to recall around 1million vehicles with risky air bags

The inflator that failed was a replacement installed in 2015 under the terms of a prior recall.

This set of recalls is part of the largest series of automotive recalls in USA history, which includes as many as 70 million vehicles recalled.

Honda says that it has replacement parts available for affected owners, "all from alternate suppliers", and will begin conducting free repairs immediately.

Manchester United may have suffered defeat to Arsenal on Super Sunday but the statistics show they are the sharp shooters of Europe.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said the recall covers 1.1 million US vehicles and is to replace inflators received "either as a permanent Takata airbag inflator recall replacement or as a service part installed following a crash or problem with the airbag itself". Documents posted by Canadian safety regulators show that Honda is recalling many of its most popular models for a second time.

The type of inflator covered by the recall announced Tuesday "contains substantially more desiccant than other desiccated inflator types, and it appears that the excessive moisture contained in the desiccant introduced humidity into the sealed inflator during assembly, accelerating propellant degradation over time", Honda spokesman Chris Martin said in an email.

The move was prompted by a January crash that injured the driver of a 2004 Honda minivan in Maryland.

There has been a lot of speculation Season 1 would be starting today, March 12, so it would make sense if that does indeed happen. AMD will be visiting the studio next week to help improve the game's performance and stability, much like Nvidia recently did.

The probe determined that inflators made at Takata's Monclova, Mexico, factory were faulty due to a manufacturing defect, Honda said.

Vehicles connected to the voluntary recall includes the 2003 Acura 3.2CL, 2013-16 Acura ILX, 2003-06 Acura MDX, 2002-03 Acura 3.2TL, 2004-06 and 2009-14 Acura TL, 2007-16 Acura RDX, 2010-13 Acura ZDX, 2001-07 and 2009 Honda Accord, 2001-05 Honda Civic, 2002-07 and 2010-11 Honda CR-V, 2003-11 Honda Element, 2007 Honda Fit, 2002-04 Honda Odyssey, 2003-08 Honda Pilot and 2006-14 Honda Ridgeline. They contained a moisture-absorbing chemical and previously were believed to be safe. "The vehicle's driver front airbag deployed and the Takata PSDI-5D replacement inflator ruptured, causing an injury to the driver's arm".

More than 290 injuries worldwide have been linked to Takata inflators that could explode, spraying metal shrapnel inside cars and trucks.
