Honda Extends Airbag Recall to 440,000 Cars

Honda Motor Co said on Friday (7/31) that it is extending its earlier recall for a potentially lethal airbag defect. The recall issued on Friday added another 440,000 vehicles including some of its best-selling Accord and Civic models.

Honda said that the airbag inflators in some of its top-selling sedans can rupture because of too much air pressure causing metal fragments to shoot through the airbag and strike vehicle occupants.

The recall covers certain 2001 and 2002 Accords, 2001 Civics and some 2002 and 2003 model Acura TL sedans. The driver's side airbag is the defective component on the affected vehicles.

Honda said owners of affected Accords, Civics and TLs should contact their local dealerships immediately if they have any questions or concerns. Or they can check to see if their vehicle is covered by the recall by checking the automaker's website at
