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.
