Honda, Nissan and Mazda are adding nearly 3 million more vehicles to the recall due to the airbag issue. The problem with the affected vehicles is that they are equipped with defective airbag inflators. The inflators are provided by the supplier Takata. All the airbag inflators provided by this supplier may be defective.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) was investigating the issue. Affected may be certain Chrysler and Toyota vehicles as well.
Honda is recalling more than 1 million Civic, Odyssey, Element and CR-V models. The cars were manufactured between the years 2000 and 2002. Mazda is recalling more than 14,000 units. Affected are RX-8 and Mazda6 models. Nissan is recalling nearly 228,000 cars in North America.
It should be noted that this is rather a serious safety recall. The thing is that the airbag issue is connected not only with the inflators, but also a potentially defective propellant that may cause the inflators to explode when the airbag deploys. If this happens, shrapnel may hit the passengers, resulting in serious injuries and even fatalities.
