More than 750,000 newer vehicles from Honda and its luxury division Acura are being recalled for an issue with the front passenger airbag, as disclosed by NHTSA on Tuesday.

Records submitted to the federal government indicate that the airbags located in the front passenger seat can unexpectedly deploy, even if the occupant is too small for the airbag to deploy safely. This includes infants in child seats, children, or adult females below 4-foot-11 and under 108 pounds. In such scenarios, the sensors in the front passenger seat should deactivate the airbags to prevent potential injury from airbag deployment.

The recall affects various models from the 2020-2022 range, including the following:

Honda recalls

2020-2022 Honda Pilot

2020-2022 Honda Accord

2020-2022 Honda Civic sedan

2020-2022 Honda HR-V

2020-2022 Honda Odyssey

2020 Honda Civic coupe

2020 Honda Fit

2021-2022 Honda Civic hatchback

2021 Honda Civic Type R

2021 Honda Insight

2020-2021 Honda CR-V and CR-V Hybrid

2020-2021 Honda Passport

2020-2021 Honda Ridgeline

2020-2021 Honda Accord Hybrid

Acura recalls

2020 Acura MDX

2022 Acura MDX

2020-2022 Acura RDX

2020-2021 Acura TLX

Drivers and passengers may observe the SRS warning light activated on the instrument cluster, while the indicator for the passenger airbag may remain off. The sensor supplied could potentially crack and cause a short circuit. Although Honda reported 3,834 warranty claims related to this recall, there have been no reported injuries or fatalities.

Affected owners will receive notification via mail starting March 18 to bring their vehicle to a Honda/Acura service center for replacement of the seat circuit board. This service will be provided at no cost to owners, with reimbursement available for those who have already addressed the issue independently. For further details, please reach out to Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138 or visit Honda’s recall site.

It’s important to note that this recall is unrelated to the significant Takata airbag recall, which involved 67 million airbags in vehicles from various major automakers produced between 2001 and 2019. This remains the most massive recall in automotive history, with the NHTSA estimating that tens of millions of vehicles with airbags from the now-defunct supplier still require repairs.
