Honda’s Recall

Posted by Admin | February 9th, 2010

First Toyota announced a massive recall of vehicles over malfunctioning, “sticky”, accelerators.  Now Honda is announcing a rather large recall too. Lingering concerns about malfunctioning airbags has forced them to recall a total of 800,000 vehicles. The cars are all 2001 or 2002 models, all sold in the United States.

While Honda said it’s not aware of additional incidents following the July 2009 recall, “we have concluded that we cannot be completely certain that the driver’s airbag inflator in the vehicles being added to this recall at this time will perform as designed.”

Honda said it’s encouraging owners of affected vehicles to take them to authorized dealers.

Of course, it could be worse–just ask Toyota.
