American Honda is aware that the NHTSA has announced a formal defect determination by Takata related to certain front airbag inflators installed in multiple automakers’ vehicles sold in the United States. Many of these inflators have already been included in previous Honda safety improvement campaigns or recalls.

In the interim, Honda will continue all efforts to complete vehicle repairs under several national and regional recalls and safety improvement campaigns. Owners of Honda and Acura vehicles can verify their vehicles’ current recall status by visiting http://www.recalls.honda.com for Honda owners or http://www.recalls.acura.com for Acura owners or by calling the appropriate customer service office, 1-800-999-1009 for Honda or 1-800-382- 2238 for Acura and pressing option 4.
