Honda, Nissan and Mazda are all recalling vehicles due to the airbag issue that we have already reported about in our previous articles. Nearly 3 million vehicles may be added to the existing recall campaign. If you remember, the problem was connected with the faulty airbag inflators the supplier of which is Takata. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) was investigating not only Honda, Nissan and Mazda vehicles, but also certain Chrysler and Toyota vehicles for the same issue.
Let us start with Honda recalling over 1 million vehicles built between the years 2000 and 2002. Affected are certain Civic, Odyssey, CR-V, Element, Accord, Pilot, Ridgeline, Acura MDX, TL and CL models. Mazda is recalling over 14,700 vehicles. Affected are RX-8, MPV and Mazda6 cars. Nissan is recalling nearly 228,000 vehicles.
Chrysler is going to replace the inflators in model-year 2006 Dodge Charger vehicles. The exact number of affected vehicles will be announced later on. The automaker says that it is not aware of any problems connected with the issue. We guess that this ”regional field action” (the automaker calls it this way, instead of naming it a ”recall”) is being carried out for safety reasons and peace of mind.
It should be noted that the problem was discovered a year ago (April, 2013) and nearly 3,4 million vehicles were recalled worldwide at that period. However, the same problem arose around June 12, 2014 and more and more automakers have started to conduct safety recalls due to the problematic airbag inflators provided by the supplier Takata.
