Honda / Acura 'airbag inflator' RECALL (2005 - 2016)

...would you classify this as a driving deathtrap?!...as in an exploding fragmentation grenade full of shrapnel.

affected ACURA vehicles:


ILX
2013-2016

RL
2005-2012

RDX
2007-2015

TL
2009-2014

ZDX
2010-2013

NHTSA RECALL NUMBER: 16V-061

MFR CAMPAIGN ID: JY2

CAMPAIGN DESCRIPTION: Takata Driver Airbag Inflator

RECALL DATE: 02/12/2016

RECALL STATUS: 17 Character VIN Required

SUMMARY:
SPECIFICALLY, IN SOME VEHICLES, THE DRIVER'S FRONT AIRBAG INFLATOR COULD PRODUCE EXCESSIVE INTERNAL PRESSURE UPON DEPLOYMENT. IF AN AFFECTED AIRBAG DEPLOYS, THE INCREASED INTERNAL PRESSURE MAY CAUSE THE INFLATOR TO RUPTURE (BREAK APART) AND DEPLOY ABNORMALLY.

SAFETY RISK:
IN THE EVENT OF AN INFLATOR RUPTURE, METAL FRAGMENTS COULD PASS THROUGH THE AIRBAG CUSHION MATERIAL POSSIBLY CAUSING SERIOUS INJURY OR FATALITY TO YOU OR OTHERS IN THE VEHICLE. PAST RUPTURES LIKE THIS HAVE KILLED AND INJURED VEHICLE DRIVERS.

REMEDY:
THE REMEDY PARTS NEEDED TO CONDUCT DRIVER'S AIRBAG INFLATOR RECALLS WILL BECOME AVAILABLE IN SUMMER OF 2016. ACURA WILL NOTIFY OWNERS IN AN INITIAL LETTER WITH A SECOND LETTER BEING MAILED WHEN PARTS ARE AVAI LABLE. PLEASE DISCUSS YOUR SPECIFIC NEEDS AND CONCERNS WITH YOUR DEALER, INCLUDING THE PROVISION OF, OR REIMBURSEMENT FOR, TEMPORARY ALTERNATIVE TRANSPORTATION AS NECESSARY. OWNERS MAY CONTACT ACURA'S CLIENT RELATIONS AT 1-888-382-2238, AND SELECT OPTION 4. ACURA'S CAMPAIGN NUMBER FOR THIS RECALL IS JY2.

Same as the Takata airbag recall although a different issue itself. I had my recall done locally with no issues. Thought it would have been different since the Evo IX was not sold in Canada originally but New Type did it no problem.

News flash: you have all been driving death traps the whole time. You're just hearing about it now. It's how recalls work.

This story has been ongoing for almost two years now. It's about time the recalls starting hitting Canada.

Lougheed Acura told the wifey that replacement parts for our car in this recall are on backorder. No idea when they'd be in.

Don't like driving a "deathtrap"? Go talk to Acura Canada about it.
I talked to Honda Canada about it, and they put me in another car while I wait for parts.

This airbag recall has been in Canada for years already, Honda/Acura keeps expanding the recalling to include more cars.
I have friends who have already had their recall done on 6th gen accord, 7th gen civic. Just the other day I saw a recall letter for the 2nd gen EL saying parts are available for it.

last year when they did this recall for my sister's EM2 in the US, Honda found out the car had the airbags tampered/hack job by a previous owner...she had to sign a waiver to get the car back.

goes to show carfax doesn't always work.

Yep, all 2005-2014 mustangs recalled as well. This gave me reason to finally swap out the fat American steering wheel for a racing wheel. Much, much better

If you recently got the notice (in the last few months), parts are not available. No official ETA but Honda Canada says some time in the summer/fall.

If an airbag from a wrecker is currently installed in the vehicle or it has been tampered with in any way, recall cannot be done. You'll have to buy the entire airbag itself if you want to have the updated part. If you decline to replace it then you'll have to sign a waiver that you declined repairs.

I just got my letter today

2011 Fit

Wasn't all that impressed when they go into detail on how serious the issue is (potentially) then in the next paragraph, tell you they expect the replacement parts to be in 'sometime late 2016'

Needless to say my wife is less than happy, but seeing as she doesn't drive it very often, I shouldn't hear too much nagging about it lol

Honestly, I'm not that worried about it, but for some people who are genuinely worried... it's not like Honda is going to give you a loaner car until late 2016...
