Honda Cars India has issued an official recall notice for the CR-V and Accord vehicles due to a potential defect related to passenger side air bag. This activity is a part of a global recall that was announced in June 2014.
The company said that due to a problem during the propellant forming process, the casing of the inflator may get damaged when the airbag deploys in an accident or in any other situation potentially causing injury to vehicle occupants. Around 1,085 units of the Honda Accord and 252 units of the CR-V manufactured in 2003 have been affected. One CR-V that was manufactured in 2002 has also been affected.
The replacement would be carried out free of cost at HCIL dealerships across India in a phased manner and the company will communicate with customers directly. The customers can also check whether their car will be covered under this campaign by submitting their 17 character alpha-numeric vehicle identification number (VIN) on the special microsite which has been created on the company’s website.
