Honda Cars India Ltd (HCIL) has announced that they will voluntarily replace Takata passenger front airbag inflators in 22,834 vehicles which include the 2013 manufactured Accord, City and Jazz. This is a part of Honda’s precautionary global recall campaign for Takata front airbag inflators.

Customers will get this replacement carried out for free of cost at Honda dealerships across India, but in a phased manner starting from 19th Jan 2018.

Model Model Year No of Affected Vehicles
Accord 2013 510
City 2013 22,084
Jazz 2013  240
Total 22,834

Customers can check whether their cars are covered under this campaign by submitting their 17 character alpha-numeric Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) on the special microsite which has been created on the company’s website (www.hondacarindia.com).

HCIL reiterates the importance of replacing the defective Takata front airbag inflators urgently as they may deploy with excessive internal pressure when activated. The airbag inflator casing might rupture which may result in injury or safety risk to the vehicle occupants.
