Honda issues safety recall
Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. will voluntarily replace Takata passenger front airbag inflators of 10,461 vehicles of 2013 model of City, Jazz and Pilot sold in the Philippines from 2012 to 2015 as part of Honda’s precautionary global recall campaign concerning Takata front airbag inflators.
Jazz : 1,769
The campaign is Honda’s proactive effort to continuously ensure safety of the owners in order to avoid any unfortunate circumstance in the future, a company statement said. The affected Takata airbag inflators might deploy with excessive internal pressure when activated. In such case, the inflator casing might rupture, which could cause serious injury or death in the worst case to vehicle occupants, it said.
HCPI President and General Manager, Noriyuki Takakura, urged Honda customers to take action and have their vehicles checked right away. “Safety is always Honda’s top priority and we urge the affected customers to have their vehicles checked at any of Honda Car dealerships, as soon as possible.”
Replacement of parts for this voluntary recall is FREE OF CHARGE and will take about one (1) hour in any of the 37 authorized Honda Car dealerships and three (3) authorized service outlets nationwide.
Customers can check if their Honda vehicle is affected through the recall webpage at hondaphil.com/services/vin-search. The website has a Chassis Number / Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) Check Tool to enable customers to validate if their vehicle is included in the recall. The 17-digit Chassis Number or VIN can be found on the Certificate of Registration (CR). Customers can also call the dedicated Honda hotline numbers at 1-800-1000-HONDA (46632) or (02) 857-7240 between 8am and 5pm from Monday to Friday. MS
