What’s the Problem?
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects:
- 1997-1998 Acura 2.2CL
- 1998-1999 Acura 2.3CL
- 1997-1999 Acura 3.0CL
- 2001 Acura 3.2CL
- 2001 Acura MDX
These vehicles were equipped with potentially defective Non-Azide Driver Air Bag Inflators (NADI) which may absorb moisture, causing the inflators to rupture or the airbag cushion to under-inflate, NHTSA said. In the event of a crash necessitating airbag deployment, an inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the driver or passengers.
Honda is notifying owners and dealers will replace the driver frontal airbag inflator with an inflator of a different design, when the replacement parts become available. This recall began on March 9, 2020.
