Honda is issuing another recall over the Takata airbags according to an article from USA Today.
1.6 Million Cars Recalled
The company announced the recall on Friday June 28th, 2019 which involves at least 1.6 million cars. Many of the cars who fall under the recall, are models ranging from the year 2003 all the way up until 2015. In addition to Honda, Acura models are also part of the recall.
Takata Airbag Dangers
The Takata airbags installed in many vehicles go even beyond just Honda and Acura cars. The airbags were found to be deploying shrapnel that could injure or kill the individuals driving the car when the airbags deployed, due to faulty inflators. Twenty-four people have died and many more have been injured as a result of the defective airbags.
The Takata airbag problem has been so widespread that the company filed for bankruptcy in July of 2017.
