Honda Airbag Recall Targets 1.68 Million U.S. Vehicles
Honda Motor Co. is recalling 1.68 million of its vehicles in the U.S. to again replace Takata Corp. airbag inflators that could explode in a crash.
The campaign covers frontal airbags on the driver and passenger side in a very broad array of Acura and Honda brand cars and crossovers built between 2001 and 2015.
Affected vehicles are fitted with inflators that were either installed as a replacement service part or as a temporary fix in a previous recall. In either case, dealers will remove those inflators and install units that are less likely to deteriorate in hot and humid weather.
Honda plans to begin the recall in mid-August.
When Suzuki developed the GSX1300R, it set out to build the fastest mass-production motorcycle on the market. As competitors gained ground and stringent emission regulations were set, Suzuki set out to reinvent the bike.
Volkswagen AG may be ordered to recall 124,000 of its plug-in hybrid and all-electric vehicles because their high-voltage charging systems contain a carcinogenic part.
The forthcoming Chevy Colorado ZR2 is designed and engineered to be able to handle off-road situations of all types with aplomb.
