Honda Takata Airbag Recall Information

The safety and well-being of Honda drivers everywhere is our top priority. Honda models use Takata Airbags, which are part of a nation-wide recall for installment defects. This repair is FREE at certified Honda dealerships across the country, including right here at Roy Schmidt Honda.

What is wrong with the Takata airbag?

In sum, the inflator in the airbags installed from 2002 to 2015 do not have a chemical drying agent. This means that if the airbags are used during a crash, then metal shards from the airbags can consequently be spit out from the airbags, causing serious and potentially fatal injury to those in the vehicle. Listed below are the years and models of Hondas that are being recalled:

  • 2001- 2012 Honda Accord
