Recall 15V714000

Driver's Air Bag Inflator May Come Apart

Recall Details

The metal housing that surrounds the driver's air bag housing may be manufactured improperly, resulting in damage to the inflator upon deployment. Dealers will replace the driver's side frontal air bag module free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The driver's frontal air bag has an inflator that is surrounded by an improperly manufactured metal housing. This could result in damage to the air bag upon deployment, and could cause metal debris to strike the vehicle occupants.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Honda must be performed by a Honda dealership. Honda will notify owners of affected vehicles in December, 2015. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Honda dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
