Honda Recalls 400,000 Minivans and SUVs Due to Airbag Issue
As if driving a minivan weren't punishment enough, we now have to constantly worry about recalls. We kid, we kid, although recalls are no joke, and this latest one affects many of us moms.
According to NBC News, nearly 400,000 Honda minivans and SUVs sold in North America have been subject to a recall due to what the Japanese auto company is calling “a small but increasing number of complaints in recent months of inadvertent airbag deployment.”
The recall notice affects 318,000 Odyssey minivans and 56,000 Acura MDX SUVs sold in the U.S. during the 2003 and 2004 model years.
The problem, according to the auto maker, is that airbag systems in these vehicles can be triggered by electrical interference, although so far, no crashes have been reported due to this defect.
Honda plans to notify owners of the problem in the coming weeks. They will correct the issue by installing an electrical noise filter to block interference, free of charge.
