Honda Expands Recall by Up to 1 Million Cars

(USA Today) – The single shrapnel-spewing deployment of an air bag in an old Accord has led Honda to expand its recall by 500,000 to 1 million vehicles. The expansion is limited to cars in California.

Honda, one of eight automakers caught up in the recalls of Takata air bags, had ordered three recalls on June 23. One was national and the other was limited to Southern states with high humidity and two U.S. territories.

At the time, Honda said the total number of vehicles involved in the recalls would be in excess of 2 million. Then the California air bag incident in a 2005 Accord occurred. Spokesman Chris Martin says the total is now about 3 million, including vehicles registered in California.

It’s the same problem as always: The air bags made by Japan’s Takata can rupture with too much force when a crash occurs. When they do, they spew metal chunks that can injure a car’s occupants.
