The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is urging drivers of vehicles with a high risk of their Takata airbags exploding not to drive them until the airbags are replaced. Tests done by the NHTSA have indicated that certain models of Honda and Acura vehicles have a much greater risk of exploding. Whereas the chance of most Takata airbags exploding is less than 1%, the chance of explosion in these vehicles is greater than 50%.
The following vehicles should not be driven until the Takata airbags have been replaced:
2001-2002 Honda Accord
2001-2002 Honda Civic
2002 Honda CR-V
2002 Honda Odyssey
2003 Honda Pilot
2003 Acura CL
2002-2003 Acura TL
The NHTSA says there are around 300,000 of these cars on the road today, and Honda has enough available parts to replace them immediately. If you own one of these vehicles and have not yet had the airbag replaced, contact your local Honda dealer and make an appointment for your free replacement right away.
“If you own one of these cars, please get it in to your dealer as soon as possible for your own safety,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
