Honda Canada Is Recalling 84,000 Cars That May Have Explosive Airbags

The inflator that failed was a replacement installed in 2015 under the terms of a prior recall. The chemical can reportedly deteriorate when exposed to humidity and high temperatures, blowing apart a metal canister and hurling shrapnel.

Earlier this year, Fiat Chrysler recalled more than 1.6 million vehicles worldwide to replace Takata front passenger air bag inflators.

Transport Canada also said vehicles that were part of the latest recall include those that were under previous recalls and others that had air bags replaced after collisions.

Honda will recall around one million older vehicles for a second time because the driver's air bag inflators previously installed could be unsafe. Documents posted by Canadian safety regulators show that Honda is recalling many of its most popular models for a second time.

The recall affects 83,977 vehicles in Canada and includes many Honda and Acura models from as far back as 2001 and as recent as 2010.

The move was prompted by a January crash that injured the driver of a 2004 Honda minivan in Maryland.

Included are the 2001 to 2007 and 2009 Honda Accord, the 2001 to 2005 Civic, the 2002 to 2007 and 2010 and 2011 CR-V, the 2003 to 2011 Element, the 2007 Fit, the 2002 to 2004 Odyssey, the 2003 to 2008 Pilot, and the 2006 to 2014 Ridgeline pickup.

"A subsequent investigation revealed that PSDI-5D inflators manufactured at Takata's Monclova, Mexico facility experienced manufacturing process errors that introduced excessive moisture into the inflator during assembly", the statement continued.

Automakers in the United States repaired more than 7.2 million defective Takata air bag inflators in 2018, as companies have ramped up efforts to track down parts in need of replacement. In early February 2019, Honda Ridgeline vehicles were recalled for catching fire when going through a auto wash.

NHTSA said not all vehicles that received replacement air bag inflators are affected.
