Last month, Honda had issued a recall involving Accords and Pilots in which it was a preventive measure to avoid any future incident related to a suspected defect in the airbag deflator of the driver side airbag. Now, this preventive measure done voluntarily had also expanded to selected 2007 to 2011 CR-V, 2006 and 2009 to 2012 Jazz, 2006 to 2011 Civic, 2003 to 2011 City, and 2011 to 2012 Insight (2 of them are included, we had no clue who are the owners here). With this involving thousands of units, owners read this one carefully.
Similar to last time's recall, this one involved more popular and mainstream Honda models and with the saying goes that prevention is better than cure, the Japanese brand will make a remedy before things get worse.
Although no incidents related to this issue had been reported yet, Honda's announcement is part of their efforts to ensure the safety of their customers and encourages to bring their units to their nearest dealers for repairs that will take an hour and it is free of charge.
Repairs had started last September 14, 2015, with affected owners being requested to contact their nearest Honda dealership.
