Honda steering wheel

Airbags--they're all that's keeping your face from being planted into your steering wheel or dashboard in the event of a collision. That said, last year's slew of airbag-related malfunctions and recalls shook the entire auto industry. And if you thought the Honda airbag debacle had ended with former Honda CEO Takanobu Ito's resignation last February, you might have thought wrong.

A possible defect with the inflators of driver-side airbags in older-generation Honda vehicles has prompted the Japanese car manufacturer to recall several models for inspection and airbag inflator replacement as part of a safety improvement campaign.

The vehicles affected by the recall are 2003-2006 Accords, 2004-2005 Civics and 2006-2007 Pilots. A total of 1,514 of the said vehicles (1,450 of them Accords) could require the inflator replacement. Owners of affected vehicles may contact any authorized Honda car dealership or service center to set an appointment. The airbag inflator replacement should take about an hour, and all parts and labor costs will be free of charge.

According to Honda Cars Philippines, the campaign is more of a preventive measure, as the situation with the airbag inflators is still currently under investigation. There have yet to be any reports of accidents or injuries related to the inflators. Still, HCPI is encouraging owners of the affected vehicles to bring their cars in to ensure the safety of their customers.

See if your Honda vehicle is affected.
