The vehicles included in the new recall are the Honda Accord and Civic, model years 2001 and 2002, the 2002 Odyssey, the 2003 CR-V, as well as some Acura 2002-2003 3.2 TL and 3.2 CL vehicles. Although 833,000 vehicles need to be inspected, it is believed just 2,430 vehicles actually contain the faulty airbag inflator service parts.
To date, several injuries have been reported, as well as one death as a result of the faulty airbags. In the event of an accident, the airbags can deploy with too much pressure, which can rupture the inflator casing, sending metal fragments into the driver and potentially causing injury or death.
