Honda expands recall to check 833,000 air bags

May 2, 2011 11:07:00 PM - thestate.com
Honda Motor Co. is expanding a recall so it can check the driver's air bags on another 833,000 vehicles for a possible defect.

The automaker said it's adding the vehicles to a previous recall because some may have had faulty air bags installed when they were fixed after a crash.

Honda said in a statement Monday night that the air bags can inflate with too much force and a casing can break and cause injury or death.

Vehicles being added to the recall include some 2001 and 2002 Accord and Civic, 2002 Odyssey, 2002 and 2003 CR-V, 2002 and 2003 Acura 3.2 TL and 2003 Acura 3.2 CL models.

Honda said 2,430 faulty air bags were installed after crashes, but it doesn't know which vehicles got them.
