In the United States, Honda recalled more than one million Acura and Honda vehicles owing to airbag inflators, which could explode when driven in an accident and project sharp metal parts to the driver passengers that must protect the safety device.
The carmaker announced on Tuesday recalling about 1.1 Million vehicles, which is the latest in a recall series related to Takata, the company that supplies the airbag inflator.
Takata is already part of the biggest recall in American history. Approximately 37 Million vehicles with the company’s 50 million defective airbags are part of this recall, according to the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The regulator confirmed that 15 people in the United States were killed by defective Takata inflators and that at least 250 people were injured.
In 2017, Takata agreed to pay $ 1 Billion in an agreement with the US Department of Justice to skin the faults for its customers.
