2003 Acura MDX Recall Details

RepairPal Expert Overview on May 24, 2016

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.

Recalls on your Honda or Acura must be performed by a Honda or Acura dealership, respectively. American Honda will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning in late June, 2016. If you do receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Honda or Acura dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle.
