Honda issues recall for 340,000 Accords in US over airbag defect

On February 3, American Honda announced that it had issued a recall of 340,000 Honda Accords.

The recall is due to a defect in the airbag system’s control unit. According to American Honda, moisture entered the control units during manufacturing, which could lead to corrosion. There is a risk that the airbag won’t activate during an accident.

American Honda has confirmed that there have been two injuries reported due to this defect.

The recall applies to Accords built from 2008 to 2010. It applies to 341,000 Accords sold in the United States.

American Honda is contacting owners of affected cars. Airbag control units are being replaced at dealerships.
