Honda To Recall 378,758 vehicles in the United States, including Accords and Civics

Another Round of recalls, but this time it’s Honda.

The U.S. arm of Japan’s Honda Motor Co. will recall 378,758 vehicles in the United States, including Accords and Civics, to replace the driver’s airbag inflator. American Honda Motor Co. said the driver’s airbag inflators in these vehicles may deploy with too much pressure, which could cause the inflator casing to rupture, possibly resulting in injury or death, the company said.

12 incidents have been reported as of Feb 10th, 2009. A quick response such as this from motor companies will hopefully be the norm from now on when it comes to faulty products and parts.
