Recall Alert: Honda Recalls 378k vehicles

Is Japan trying to kill us or something? It seems Toyota is not alone with the rolling death-mobiles. Honda announced a recall of 378,000 cars in the US (437k globally.) The affected vehicles include Accords, Civics, Odysseys, and CR-V’s from the 2001 and 2002 model years. A few Acura vehicles are also affected.

The issues is with the airbags – and the fact that they may not deploy. So far, one person has died, and 11 more have been injured due to this defect. So, instead of being able to stand up tall and say “neener neener neener” to Toyota, Honda is going to have to deal with this nasty recall.

It’s a good time to be an American car company.
