DETROIT (TIP): Honda Motor Co Ltd said it will recall 1.39 million Accord and Civic model sedans with potentially faulty front passenger-side air bags made by Japan’s Takata Corp.
This will bring to about 2.3 million the number of Accord and Civic sedans with Takata’s front passenger-side air bags that have been recalled, the automaker said.
Models affected by the Monday announcement include 2001 to 2005 Civic sedans and 2003 to 2007 Accord sedans sold in the United States.
The Accord and Civic model sedans in this latest recall have already been recalled previously for front driver-side air bags, a Honda spokesman said.
The total number of Honda vehicles recalled, however, did not increase from about 6.3 million as a result of Monday’s announcement.
