Honda Cars Ph recalls 10,461 City, Jazz and Pilot vehicles to replace defective Takata airbags

One hour. That’s all a Honda vehicle owner needs to replace the suspect part.

Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. announces that it will voluntarily replace Takata passenger front airbag inflators of 10,461 vehicles of 2013 model of City, Jazz and Pilot sold in the Philippines from 2012 to 2015 as part of Honda’s precautionary global recall campaign concerning Takata front airbag inflators.

Jazz 1,769
Pilot 172
Total10,461

 

The affected Takata airbag inflators might deploy with excessive internal pressure when activated. In such cases, the inflator casing might rupture and cause serious injury, even or death.

HCPI President and General Manager Noriyuki Takakura appealed to Honda customers, “We urge the affected customers to have their vehicles checked at any of Honda Car dealerships as soon as possible.”

Below is the table of complete information of the vehicles which are included in the recall:
