Takata strikes again. Yes, the Japanese manufacturer of the infamous defective airbag inflators has a new set of victims, this time affecting 19,624 perfectly good Honda vehicles in the Philippines.
The “preventive measure campaign” of Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI), otherwise known as a voluntary safety recall to most, covers a number of 2012 – 2013 Jazz, 2012 – 2014 City, and 2011 CR-V sold in the country. More specifically, it requires 3,479 examples of the Jazz, 15,815 of the City, and 30 CR-Vs to visit an authorized dealership and have the faulty part replaced.
As expected, the component in question is the driver’s side airbag inflator. Although the said concern remains unconfirmed, HCPI’s proactive campaign ensures that all the owners of the affected vehicles are safe. Thankfully, no accidents or injuries related to this have been reported in the country.
The detailed list of affected units, with corresponding Frame Numbers are tallied below.
If your Jazz, City, or CR-V is part of this “preventive measure campaign,” HCPI requests that you contact any Honda Car dealership and book a service appointment. The replacement of the affected inflator will only take 1 hour and will be free of charge for both parts and labor.
