Honda Recalls 405K Vehicles

September 19, 2013 by  

Honda Recalls 405K Vehicles, Honda is recalling 404,700 minivans and SUVs to fix airbags that can deploy inadvertently, the automaker said early Thursday.

The 2003-2004 Honda Odyssey and 2003 Acura MDX have front airbags that can deploy without warning due to electrical spikes that can damage the airbag control modules. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened an investigation in June after receiving six reports of Odyssey airbags deploying without a crash, three of which caused injuries. The agency said it received an additional 41 complaints of airbag warning lights illuminating on similar models.

Of the total, 318,000 Odyssey and 56,000 MDX models will be recalled in the U.S., with the remainder in Canada, Japan and Australia.

Honda’s airbag supplier, TRW, supplied the same faulty airbags to Chrysler which led that automaker to recall 919,545 Jeep SUVs in November from similar model years. At that time, TRW said in a filing to NHTSA that certain Honda models could also be affected by the airbag problems, but Honda did not issue a recall.
