Honda PH to recall 1760 cars for faulty airbag

On Wednesday, Honda Cars Philippines, Inc., (HCPI) announced that it is voluntarily recalling 1,760 units of select Honda Accord, City, Civic and Fit sold in the Philippines due to faulty inflation device of the front passenger airbag.

According to the official press release, the initiative by HCPI is part of the worldwide recall program after identifying the flaw on the airbag mechanism that was inadvertently installed on affected units during the assembly process.

Here’s the list of affected cars, with the Vehicle Identification Number, that will be recalled:

Despite of the issue, Honda PH claims that there were no reported cases involving the faulty airbag. The local arm also assured that “owners of Honda City, Jazz, Civic, Accord, CR-Z, CR-V, HR-V, Pilot and Odyssey models sold and distributed by Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. and which are not covered by this recall have no reason to worry since the airbags of these models were assembled during other periods.

HCPI stated that they’ve already reached out to the owners of affected units through Letter-Notices and by contacting them through phone. For owners of affected units listed above who has not received the recall notice from the firm, they are encouraged to contact their respective dealers either through phone (02-857-7240) or through email (customer_relations@hondaphil.com).

Replacement of the affected part will take about one hour and will be carried out in all 32 authorized dealers and 3 service centers nationwide. Repair service of affected vehicles will sequentially start from July 31, 2014.

    That’s not a good sign! I wonder if Quality Assurance was asleep inspecting their products at that time….. On the plus side, at least it was not a million cars that was recalled. Honda will have a field day “calming the storm”.
