Honda Motor Corporation will recall or inspect nearly a milion Honda and Acura vehicles because of a faulty air bag system that can cause the air car's air bags to explode with too much force, killing or wounding the occupants. A Honda spokesman stated, "The propellant was packed improperly, and that allows the propellant to burn off too quickly and it explodes, and pieces of the casing are causing injuries." According to a recent Los Angeles Times news article, the problem has caused multiple injuries and two deaths. Honda spokesman, Chris Martin, describes the problem as a "very serious thing" and "not something to wait on."
If you or someone you know has a 2001 to 2003 Honda or Acura automobile, contact your local dealer immediately to see if you need free repairs to your vehicle under this recall. This recall is so vast that it now totals over 2.5 million vehicles. The recall includes Civics, Odyssey's, CR-V's, Pilots, Acura TL and CL models and possibly more. The inspections and repairs are free, and your dealer will be able to tell you if you need to come in for repairs.
If you or someone you know has been injured by an airbag in a Honda or Acura vehicle, don't wait and call a serious injury attorney right away. A competent attorney can tell you if you are likely eligible to recover money for your pain and suffering and have your medical bills paid for. Delays in contacting an attorney can prejudice your rights to recovery.
