Passenger Side Air Bag Inflator may Rupture

In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger’s frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants potentially resulting in serious injury or death.



American Honda Motor Company, Inc.’s (Honda) is conducting a limited regional recall for certain model year 2003-2005 Accord, Civic, CR-V, Pilot and Acura MDX, model year 2003-2004 Odyssey and Element, and model year 2005 Acura RL, and 2006 Honda Ridgeline vehicles originally sold, or ever registered in California, and equipped with Takata-brand air bag inflators.

Upon deployment of the passenger side frontal air bag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture.

The recall is expected to begin during August 2014.
