Honda Airbag Inflator Recall​

At Johnsons Honda, we care about our customers and are committed to you and your safety. It’s our duty to make sure you have all the news you need about your Honda, and that includes the following:

A global Airbag Inflator Recall has recently been announced, with a number of automotive manufacturers affected. The fault in question poses a very high safety risk, putting you and your passengers in serious danger. On behalf of the manufacturer, we cannot apologise enough for the risk imposed, but a process is now in place to rectify this situation as soon as possible – and Johnsons Honda is here to help.

The fault and the fix

In the event of an impact where the airbag is deployed, the inflator part of the airbag may ignite in such a manner that it creates excessive internal pressure. As a result, the metal inflator casing may rupture, causing metal fragments to be propelled through the airbag and into the vehicle. This could result in a serious injury or in the worst case, death.

Fixing this issue is both simple and fast: once you bring your Honda to your nearest Johnsons Honda dealership, our manufacturer-trained technicians will install a modified inflator into the airbag module. The work will take approximately one hour to complete and will be carried out completely free of charge. We strongly advise that you get this work done as a matter of urgency.
