Honda recalls 750,000 vehicles over airbag risk

Honda is recalling more than 750,000 vehicles in the U.S. over faulty weight sensors that can cause airbags to deploy at the wrong time

Honda is recalling more than 750,000 vehicles in the U.S. over defective sensors that can cause airbags to deploy when a child or small adult is in the front seat.

According to the automaker’s filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the recall covers 2020-2022 Honda Pilots, Accords, Civid sedans, HR-Vs, and Odysseys, 2021-2022 Civic hatchbacks, 2021 Civic Type Rs and Insights, 2020-2021 CR-Vs, CR-V hybrids, Passports, Ridgelines, and Accord Hybrid, and 2020 Fits and Civic Coupes. Also included are the 2020 and 2022 Acura MDX, 2020-2022 RDX, and 2020 and 2021 TLX. To find out if your vehicle is affected by a recall, visit the NHTSA’s website and type in your vehicle identification number (VIN).

The NHTSA notes that weight sensors in the affected models can be broken through use. The sensors are necessary to detect when a child or small adult is in the seat so that they can disable the airbag. Failing to do so can increase the risk of injury. Honda is aware of at least 3,384 warranty claims related to the issue but says it has received no reports of injuries or casualties stemming from broken sensors.

Owners of the recalled vehicles will receive notice starting March 18. Honda dealers will replace the broken components free of charge.
