An expanded recall of over 273,000 vehicles was added to an earlier recall of certain models from both Honda and Acura. According to recent news, the driver’s air bags may allegedly deploy with an intense force posing injury threats. Some cases may lead to the driver’s death.
The reports show that the company will replace all faulty airbags free of charge. All owners must make an appearance at a Honda dealer so they can fix the issue right away. The alleged extended recall was issued for the 2001 to 2003 Civic, the 2001 to 2002 Accord, 2002 Odyssey, 2002 to 2003 Accura 3.2 TL, 2002 to 2003 CR-V and the 2003 Accura 3.2 CL.
Many incidents have been reported to the carmaker and because of that, the extension of this recall was seen as a necessary act. All vehicle owners will be receiving letters from the company regarding the extended recall in the near future.
As an Everett car accident lawyer I urge all Honda drivers to check their vehicle models and see if their car is part of the recall. Personal injury lawyers urge all readers who happen to own a vehicle with faulty air bags to contact the dealership as soon as possible. Do not delay.
