Honda Recalls 784K Vehicles Over Takata Air Bags
Japanese automaker Honda announced to be recalling 784,000 vehicles including Odyssey minivan, Clarity fuel cell and Accord sedan in Japan for faulty Takata air bag inflators for front passenger seats.
Takata Corp. has not been able to supply enough replacement parts amid many such recalls over inflators that is said may explode with too much of force.
Until now the recalls may have hiked to more than 100 million across the world.
Last month the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration agreed to a deal with Takata demanding adding up to 40 million air bag inflators to an already massive recall.
As an aftermath the Japanese government responses similarly and Honda said the recall is inclined to it.
The front passenger air bags does not have a chemical drying agent known as a desiccant and the additional recall mainly cover such inflators.
Until now eleven deaths have been confirmed across the world due to Takata inflators and more than 100 people have been injured.
The two recent deaths took place in Malaysia and investigation is under progress.
