Honda Expanding its Takata Airbag Recall 04-12-2014

Saffran Use Car
Despite the airbag manufacturer insisting it's not necessary, the Japanese automaker will expand its airbag recall in accordance with a request from federal regulators. The first wave of recalls targeted vehicles in high-humidity areas, but U.S. safety regulators are pushing for a national airbag recall. Honda announced that it will be issuing free loaner cars until repairs can be made and the company will prioritize high-humidity areas first, due to the limited availability of replacement parts. Honda's recall expansion is only for driver-side airbags and does not affect passenger-side airbags. Takata has refused the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's demand to recall the driver-side inflators and continues to insist that the inflators it is currently producing are safe.Despite the airbag manufacturer insisting it's not necessary, the Japanese automaker will expand its airbag recall in accordance with a request from federal regulators.
