Honda Cars India are most likely to issue a recall for the Accord sedan sold in the country in the first half of the last decade. The recall is a part of the massive global recall of faulty Takata airbags, which has plagued nearly 7.6 million vehicles over the past five years across several auto brands.
Honda Cars India is currently, in the process of determining the number of affected units in India. The company had sold around 27,000 units of the sedan so far. Honda maintains that the number of cars with the faulty airbags would be very small in India. The Honda Accord that was originally launched in the country in 2011 was phased out from the market in 2013.
On a global scale, Honda Motor Corp. has said that it would recall close to two million vehicles that were manufactured between August 2000 and December 2005. Other global automakers who have been affected by the Takata recall case so far are Nissan Motor Corp., BMW, Toyota, Ford and Chrysler.
The massive global recall had stemmed from faulty airbags supplied by Japan’s Takata Corp. that has the potential to explode in an event of an accident, putting the lives of passengers in danger.
