Toyota and Honda Issue Airbag Recall

Regional | by Jill Young  

Millions of vehicles worldwide have been recalled due to more problems with airbags.

Toyota and Honda have had to recall over 6 million vehicles worldwide for an airbag problem.

Honda's recall covers 2.7 million vehicles in Canada and the US with Takata air bag inflators, but they're different than the ones from a previous recall.

It's possible they could hurl shrapnel when activated.

Toyota's recall affects 3.4 million vehicles globally because the air bags may not inflate in a crash.

The recall covers Corollas, the Matrix and the Avalon of certain model years, while the Honda vehicles include the Accord, Civic, CRV, the Odyssey and the EV Plus - mostly older models.

TOYOTA:

2011-2019 Corollas, 2011 to 2013 Matrix, and the 2012 to 2018 Avalon.

HONDA:

1998 to 2000 Accord Coupe and Sedan, the 1996 to 2000 Civic coupe and sedan, the 1997 to 2001 CR-V, the 1998 to 2001 Odyssey and the 1997 and 1998 EV Plus.

ACURA:

1997 and 1998 2.2CL, the 1997 to 1999 3.0CL, the 1998 and 1999 2.3CL, the 2001 and 2002 3.2CL, the 2001 and 2002 MDX, the 1998 to 2003 3.5RL, and the 1999 to 2001 3.2TL.
