Honda Says 60,000 Vehicles Still Have Defective Takata Airbags

In April 2018, Honda warned the public that there were more than 62,000 vehicles that had not yet had their “ticking time bomb” Takata airbags replaced. This subset of airbags, known as Alpha inflators, has demonstrated a 50-50 chance of rupturing in testing. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) website, another 3.5 million Honda airbags known as “Beta” inflators also need to be replaced.
