2005 Honda Element Recalls
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
When deployed in a crash, the driver's front air bag inflator can rupture. As a result, metal fragments from the inflator can strike occupants.
Certain vehicles are being recalled because the passenger airbag inflator may rupture upon deployment. Vehicle occupants could be struck by metal fragments resulting in personal injury.
Certain vehicles are being recalled because the driver and/or passenger airbag inflator may rupture upon deployment. Vehicle occupants could be struck by metal fragments resulting in personal injury.
A failed bearing inside the automatic transmission may cause internal damage, which can cause the engine to stall or the vehicle to roll while the transmission is in Park.
A problem with the optional trailer hitch kit may cause the trailer lights to work incorrectly, or blow a fuse. If the trailer lights signal incorrectly or do not function, a crash could occur without warning.
