TORRANCE, Calif. (Sept. 6, 2016) — American Honda Motor Co. Inc. has updated the safety poster it first issued in 2015 to inform customers and auto repairers about the Takata airbag inflater recalls on certain Honda and Acura vehicles.
The new poster includes additional Honda and Acura vehicles that were not part of the initial recall, Honda announced Sept. 6.
Physical copies of the poster will appear in various automotive publications in the second week of September, according to Honda.
The poster includes a toll-free telephone number and several web addresses where shop owners, technicians or customers may check a vehicle's recall completion status, Honda said.
“Please note that the new poster also distinguishes those vehicles considered to be of highest risk for rupture,” Honda said. These are 313,000 2001-2003 Honda and Acura vehicles that should be driven only to the nearest dealer to have the inflators replaced free of charge as soon as possible, the company said.
Repairers and customers should check the vehicle identification numbers at recalls.honda.com for Honda vehicles or recalls.acura.com for Acura vehicles, Honda said. Additional information about open recalls is available by calling 888-234-2138.
