DETROIT (AP) — Honda is recalling another 2.2 million Honda and Acura vehicles because the driver’s air bag inflators made by Takata can explode and hurl shrapnel into the passenger compartment.
The recall is a big chunk of the 5 million additional vehicles to be repaired for Takata inflator problems that U.S. safety regulators announced last month.
Honda’s recall includes older model years dating to 2005, but also has some newer vehicles from as recently as the 2015 and 2016 model years.
The recall brings to about 24 million the number of vehicles recalled in the U.S. due to Takata inflator problems that have caused at least 11 deaths and 139 injuries worldwide.
If you own one of the models below, your vehicle may be included in a recently announced Takata airbag inflator recall.
