Honda to recall Civic, Accord

2010-02-10 09:58
Honda has recalled more than 400 000 vehicles to fix a defect which could cause airbags to explode and spray out deadly metal shards.

Amidst Toyota's global recall for several of its models, the Honda recall is the third since 2008 relating to the airbag defect.

Honda reports that the defective air bag could rupture, "resulting in metal fragments passing through the airbag cushion material and possibly causing injury or fatality to vehicle occupants".

The recall includes Accord and Civic models sold in the US, Canada and Japan and according to Honda SA's Joeline Dabrowski, models sold in South Africa will not be affected.
