March 12, 2019

(Reuters) – Honda Motor Co said on Tuesday its American unit will recall about 1.1 million Acura and Honda vehicles in the United States to fix a defect in Takata airbags in driver’s seat.

The company said it is aware of one injury linked to a defect in the airbag that may cause the airbag to rupture when deployed in a crash.

Free recall repairs would begin immediately in the United States with replacement parts made by alternate suppliers, Honda said.
