Honda Recall Affects 750,000 Vehicles
If you drive a Honda, there could be a problem that causes the airbags to unintentionally deploy. A recent Honda recall affects 750,000 vehicles.
The issue involves a passenger weight sensor that could accidentally trigger the airbags. Honda officials say the sensor, which is located under the passenger seat, could crack and short circuit.
Obviously, unintentional airbag deployment can be a major problem. Airbags deploy with enough force to provide protection during a collision. An unexpected deployment, without a corresponding impact, can cause serious injuries. This is especially true for small children or someone who is sitting close to the airbag module.
The Honda recall affects 2020-2022 Accord, Civic and Pilot models as well as 2020 and 2021 CR-V and Passport models. A handful of Acura models are also affected, including the 2020 and 2022 model year MDX, 2020-2022 RDX and 2020-2021 TLX.
