Honda Is Investigated for Air Bag Recall

The Center for Auto Safety is the nation’s premier independent, member driven, non-profit consumer advocacy organization dedicated to improving vehicle safety, quality, and fuel economy on behalf of all drivers, passengers, and pedestrians.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is investigating whether Honda delayed the recall of almost 440,000 vehicles for an air bag defect that could allow shards of metal to hit the driver.

Last November, Honda notified the safety agency that it was recalling about 3,900 2001 Accords and Civics because the air bag inflator on the driver’s side might be too powerful. That could result in metal pieces going through the air bag and striking the driver.
