Senators want certain Hondas with Takata airbags taken off the road
Two U.S. senators are calling on Honda to issue "do not drive" orders to owners of
2001-2003 Honda and Acura models with Takata airbags that have been shown to have
a 50 percent chance of rupturing in a crash.
The higher-risk inflators are in the following vehicles:
2001-2002 Honda Civic;
2001-2002 Honda Accord;
2002-2003 Acura TL;
2002 Honda CR-V;
2002 Honda Odyssey;
2003 Acura CL; and
2003 Honda Pilot.
The airbag inflators in these models contain a manufacturing defect that, according
to federal safety regulators, greatly increases the potential for dangerous rupture
when a crash causes the airbag to deploy.

Toyota expands Takata airbag recall - 6/2016
Another 1.5 million vehicles are added to the list
Toyota Motor Sales, USA is expanding its recalls involving Takata front passenger
air bag inflators by approximately 1.584 million vehicles.
A safety defect may arise in front passenger air bag inflators in the involved vehicles
due to inflator propellant degradation occurring after prolonged exposure to high
absolute humidity, high temperatures and high temperature cycling.
This may result in an inflator rupture when the air bag deploys.
Approximately 1,584,000 additional vehicles in U.S. are being recalled. Among them:
2009 - 2011MY Corolla, Matrix
2006 - 2011MY Yaris
