Honda recalls more vehicles for faulty airbags

Posted: Updated:

Honda is recalling up to 1 million more vehicles, while Subaru has become the eighth automaker affected by faulty Takata airbags.

More than 10 million vehicles have been recalled because of the defect which could cause airbags to improperly inflate in a crash, sending shrapnel into the cabin.

Honda's latest recall is for 500,000 to 1 million sedans, minivans, SUVs and crossovers sold in California. Vehicles covered include some 2003 to 2005 Honda Accords, Civics, CR-Vs, Elements, Pilots, Acura MDX and 2005 Acura RLs and 2003 to 2004 Honda Odysseys.

Honda's new move comes a month after the maker called back 2 million other vehicles due to airbag problems.

Subaru, meanwhile, is recalling about 8,600 Legacy sedans, Outback wagons and Baja crossovers sold in 2003 and 2004 and 2004 Impreza, WRX and WRX STI models.
