On March 19, Honda stated that they are adding 104,871 vehicles to their Takata airbag recall, an article of USA Today reported.
This is the latest wave of Takata airbag recalls, which now include 2008 Pilot SUVs, 2004 Civics, and 2001 Accords. These primarily affect the driver side airbags, which is a deviation from the previous focus on the passenger side airbags. Several deaths have been attributed to these airbags exploding and ejecting shrapnel on impact. The problem was previously thought to only affect vehicles registered in humid areas of the United States, but the recall was expanded, and continues to expand, to other regions and models as investigators gather more information.
