What To Know About the Honda Airbag Recall
Driving a car has become a routine part of millions of people’s days. Because of this it’s easy to forget that while our cars are built more safely than ever before, driving can still be a dangerous activity. Even the most careful drivers on the safest roads are not guaranteed to avoid an accident. Despite this cars are equipped with safety features to make even the most unavoidable accidents as safe as possible for the drivers. One of the most important advances in technology with regards to car safety is the airbag. It is the airbag that is supposed to protect you the minute your car is impacted in an accident, but what if your airbag hurt you instead of kept you safe?
The recent Honda airbag recall is one of the largest recalls in history. This has affected millions of vehicles and caused hundreds of injuries and even a number of deaths. The recall involves an airbag inflator made by Takata. The airbag has been proven to explode during an accident sending shrapnel into the passenger compartment and causing injuries to the passenger. This defect is causing passengers in these Hondas to experience greater injuries than they would suffer as a result of the crash alone. As one of the most popular car brands in the United States, this recall affects millions of Americans. It is extremely important that all owners of a Honda go online and consult this site to make sure that their model is not affected. The airbag is present in models spanning from the years 2001-2016 and is not limited to a specific model.
