Michigan Honda And Acura Drivers Face Urgent Recall

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new recall for more than 750,000 Honda vehicles.

Why?


As soon as federal safety regulators learned that some of Honda's vehicle airbags may deploy unintentionally during a crash, they announced.

According to the recall alert, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that,

"The front passenger seat weight sensor may crack and short circuit, failing to suppress the airbag as intended."

However, this recall does not just affect Honda drivers, it also affects Acura drivers too.

What Honda Vehicles Are Recalled?

Officials are saying that the recall includes 16 Honda and Acura makes.

The specific makes and models being recalled are:

ACURA/MDX/2020, 2022
ACURA/RDX/2020-2022
ACURA/TLX/2020-2021
HONDA/ACCORD/2020-2022
HONDA/ACCORD HYBRID/2020-2021
HONDA/CIVIC/2020-2022
HONDA/CIVIC TYPE-R/2021
HONDA/CR-V/2020-2021
HONDA/CR-V HYBRID/2020-2021
HONDA/FIT/2020
HONDA/HR-V/2020-2022
HONDA/INSIGHT/2021
HONDA/ODYSSEY/2020-2022
HONDA/PASSPORT/2020-2021
HONDA/PILOT/2020-2022
HONDA/RIDGELINE/2020-2021

The models are from 2020 to 2022. Honda had 3,834 warranty claims due to the issue between June 30, 2020, and January 19, 2024. The problem could cause great harm or have grave consequences.

This is the second major recall for Honda. In December, 2.5 million models were recalled because of an improperly molded fuel pump impeller. This would cause the engine to stall while driving, which could lead to a fatal crash.

With that recall, it affected the Honda Accord, Civic, CR-V, HR-V, Ridgeline, and Odyssey. These models are also being affected by the current recall.

What Should You Do If Your Honda Or Acura Is Recalled?

The dealership will replace the seat weight sensors free of charge. If you have already paid for repairs, you may be eligible to get your money back.

Notification letters are expected to be mailed to owners by March 18.
