Honda ex­pands re­call for air bags

Los Angeles Times - - TECHNOLOGY -

At the in­sis­tence of U.S. safety reg­u­la­tors, Honda is adding more than a mil­lion of its most pop­u­lar ve­hi­cles to a grow­ing re­call for air bags that can ex­plode with too much force.

The com­pany said it’s ex­pand­ing a pre­vi­ous re­call of pas­sen­ger air bag inf la­tors from high-hu­mid­ity states to the en­tire na­tion. That will add just over a mil­lion 2001 to 2005 Civics and 2003 to 2007 Ac­cords to the re­call. The two sedans are Honda’s No. 2 and No. 3 sellers so far this year in the U.S.

Two weeks ago Honda said it would re­call about 350,000 of the cars in high hu­mid­ity ar­eas. But the re­call was ex­panded af­ter the Na­tional High­way Traf­fic Safety Ad­min­is­tra­tion de­manded that it be done na­tion­ally. A driver’s side re­call al­ready is be­ing done across the na­tion.
