Honda Motor Co. Ltd.'s U.S. arm issued a recall of about 1.1 million Honda- and Acura-branded vehicles that were installed with faulty Takata Corp. airbag inflators, the carmaker said March 12.
The Japanese carmaker said in a news release that it became aware of the issue after a crash involving a 2004 Honda Odyssey that led to one injury.
Takata's airbags have been the subject of massive recalls around the world after being linked to reported deaths and injuries.
In October 2018, the carmaker issued a recall of 1.4 million vehicles to replace the airbag inflators, which could explode if exposed to prolonged high heat and humidity, according to a Fortune report, citing the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
To date, Honda has identified and recalled about 21 million airbag inflators in 12.9 million Honda and Acura automobiles, the company said.
In the same release, Honda said another 4,540 of its Gold Wing motorcycles will be recalled for the same issue. Owners will be notified through the mail beginning in early April and can bring the vehicles to dealerships, which will replace faulty parts free of charge.
On Feb. 11, Bayerische Motoren Werke AG and Daimler AG recalled 455,976 vehicles in the U.S. over faulty Takata airbags.
