Default Is your older Honda being recalled? (LINKS)

I recently bought a used 2005 Honda Civic and haven't checked yet. Something to do with airbag inflators becoming dangerous over time.

I wonder if my car being classed as a "rebuilt" ill still be able to get this?


Canada:

https://www.honda.ca/recalls


USA:

http://hondaairbaginfo.com/easy-recall-lookup/

News article:

https://globalnews.ca/news/5046314/honda-recall-takata-air-bag/

DETROIT – Honda will be recalling about 1 million older vehicles in the U.S. and Canada because the Takata driver’s air bag inflators that were installed during previous recalls could be dangerous.

Documents posted Monday by Canadian safety regulators show that Honda is recalling many of its most popular models for a second time. The models are from as old as 2001 and as recent as 2010.

Canadian documents say about 84,000 vehicles are involved, and that number is usually over 10 times higher in the United States.

Honda wouldn’t comment Monday, and a message was left for the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration seeking comment after business hours.

Owners will be told to take their vehicles to dealers to have the inflator replaced.

All good fam, I was giving you a hard time. I would suspect they would still need to replace them - I would call the dealership and ask. My parent's had to get the airbags in their honda replaced but had to wait a while as so many people are dealing with the same thing.

just remove the airbag and put an aftermarket steering wheel on. That's like 100lbs in weight reduction.

Also, they will hunt you down if you do have a recall. leave cards on your car, mail you notices, offer ******** (not by a girl) and if that's your thing go for it,

Yeah they have like 8 billion cars to deal with, it takes awhile. Demand a rental because you feel unsafe.

nah dawg, the car sits idle in my driveway until i gather the energy to change the oil and timing belt, id never feel unsafe unless it was a problem where airbag deploys randomly

just like having my cars up to date


got a smoking deal on this unit, upgraded from a beater sunfire, my normal ride isnt a car, its a truck

I thought this was going to actually be about old Hondas like my 92 Integra.
