419 Units of Honda Civic Type R Recalled Over Faulty Takata Airbags
Honda Malaysia is extending its product recall to 419 units of Civic Type R to replace the Takata front airbag inflators as part of its ongoing proactive measures to ensure customer safety.
The recall involves the replacement of Takata driver and passenger front airbag inflators of the Civic Type R (2007 – 2008 Year Model & 2010 Year Model).
The company would like to emphasise that all its current selling models are not affected and that it will continue to uphold transparency and stringent controls to ensure customer safety. Honda Malaysia assures customers that safety is the company’s priority and regrets the inconvenience caused.
Honda Malaysia reiterates the importance of replacing the defective Takata front airbag inflators urgently as they may deploy with excessive internal pressure when activated. The airbag inflator casing might rupture, which may result in injury or fatality of the driver and passenger.
All affected customers will be informed via a notification letter, which will include details of the recall. Customers who receive the notification are strongly advised to urgently bring the letter and their vehicles to the nearest authorised Honda dealer for inspection and replacement.
