1.1M Honda and Acura vehicles added to growing Takata airbag recall

Honda on Monday issued a recall covering 1.1 million cars and crossover SUVs to replace defective driver’s side airbags made by automotive supplier Takata.

The latest recall applies to certain 2003 through 2014 model-year Acura and Honda cars and crossover SUVs built with Takata airbag inflators that may have been contaminated with moisture before they were installed. Moisture inside the inflators could lead to an explosion. More than two dozen deaths globally have been linked to Takata inflators.
