Honda is recalling 2.23 million more cars in the U.S. for defective Takata airbag inflators, which now affect nearly every car in the company’s lineup.
The new Honda models include the 2007–2011 CR-V, 2007–2014 Ridgeline, 2009–2014 Fit, 2010–2014 FCX Clarity, 2010–2014 Insight, and 2011–2015 CR-Z. Acura vehicles affected by this new recall are the 2005–2012 RL, 2007–2016 RDX, 2009–2014 TL, 2010–2013 ZDX, and 2013–2016 ILX.
All of these vehicles will need their driver’s-side frontal airbag inflators replaced. Honda said it knows of no ruptures in these vehicles. Dealers cannot sell any of these vehicles in stock until parts arrive in the summer. Older vehicles and those in high-humidity locales (Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas) will be given priority for the replacement parts. This latest recall brings the total number of affected Honda and Acura models to 8.51 million. Ten people have died from the Takata airbag inflators, all but one in Honda models.
