What Do I Do If My Honda Has Recalled Airbags?

If you learn your Honda has an open recall because of a defective airbag, you should get the airbag replaced immediately. All Honda dealerships with authorized repair centers can perform these services for free.

Honda is offering free rental cars during your repair, so you can return to work, run errands, or otherwise experience as little disruption as possible while you get your airbag repaired. If the replacement part for your airbag is not available immediately, you may be eligible for a free rental until the part is in stock.

As a part of a class action settlement, you may also be eligible to recover out-of-pocket expenses related to the recall.

If you have any of the vehicles listed below, Honda recommends that you stop driving it immediately, unless it is to drive to the dealership for a repair.

What Makes Takata Airbags Dangerous?

The inflators in affected Takata airbags can fracture during airbag deployment, sending metal shrapnel throughout the interior of your vehicle. This shrapnel can cause or contribute to serious injuries or even death to anyone in the vehicle.

Inflators in older vehicles in warm and humid climates are at a higher risk of fracture. However, these incidents have occurred nationwide, so you should not ignore a recall even if you are in a cooler climate.
