These vehicles are equipped with Non-Azide Driver Airbag Inflators (NADI) and do not contain phase-stabilized ammonium nitrate (PSAN) propellant, NHTSA said. Due to a potential manufacturing defect, the NADI inflators may absorb moisture, which may cause them to rupture or under-inflated during a crash. If this occurs, metal fragments may strike the driver or passenger, causing severe injuries.
Honda is notifying owners of affected models starting March 9, 2020, and dealers will replace the airbag inflators with a different design when the replacement parts become available.
