Honda has issued a recall for more than three quarters of a million vehicles in the U.S. after discovering a faulty sensor that may lead to the unintended inflation of front passenger airbags during a crash.

Affected Models

The recall encompasses multiple models across different Honda and Acura lines, including:

Honda Models

  • Pilot
  • Accord
  • Civic sedan
  • HR-V
  • Odyssey
  • Fit
  • Civic Coupe
  • Civic hatchback
  • Civic Type R
  • Insight
  • CR-V
  • CR-V Hybrid
  • Passport
  • Ridgeline
  • Accord Hybrid

Acura Models

  • MDX
  • RDX
  • TLX

Safety Concerns

According to documents released by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there is a possibility that the front passenger seat weight sensor could develop a crack, leading to a short circuit. As a result, the airbag may fail to deactivate as intended in the presence of small adults or children, significantly increasing the risk of injury.

Free Replacement for Owners

Honda will be providing free replacement of the seat sensors to all affected vehicle owners. Notifications will commence on March 18.

No Reported Injuries or Fatalities

Despite receiving 3,834 warranty claims between June 30, 2020, and January 19, 2022, Honda reports no incidents of injuries or fatalities related to this issue.
