About 3.4 million cars are being recalled worldwide due to faulty airbags that can rupture when deployed.
Honda is recalling more than 1.1 million vehicles, saying it is necessary to replace passenger front airbag inflators to ensure consumer safety.
“It is possible that the passenger front airbag inflators in affected vehicles may deploy with too much pressure, which may cause the inflator casing to rupture and could result in injury,” the company said in a statement, CNN reports.
Honda said it was aware of one accident in which a passenger front airbag casing had ruptured, but no deaths of injuries were reported. Toyota said it had reports of five airbag malfunctions, but no injuries, CNN reports.
