Honda Automobile (Thailand) continues its campaign for Honda Vehicles that Require Replacement Airbag Inflators
Vehicle owners encouraged to refrain from using non-standard used airbags

Bangkok (13 June 2017) – Honda Automobile (Thailand) Co., Ltd. previously announced that some affected Honda vehicles in Thailand may require inspection and replacement of Takata airbag inflators. The reason for this replacement is that the affected Takata airbag inflators might deploy with excessive internal pressure when activated. In such a case, the airbag inflator casing might rupture, which could result in a safety risk for passengers and drivers.

Honda Automobile (Thailand) is asking the owners of the affected vehicles to contact any authorized Honda dealer nationwide and schedule an appointment for a free replacement of the affected parts.

Honda owners can also check whether their vehicles' airbag inflators are subject to replacement of the affected parts with their Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) by accessing www.honda.co.th/vinsearch or by calling any authorized Honda dealer nationwide.

In the event that vehicle owners have to replace the airbag module after it has been activated, Honda strongly encourages that any replacement airbag module used to repair their vehicle be purchased directly from authorized Honda dealers only, and to refrain from using second-hand airbag modules widely sold in the market as some of them may not meet safety standards, and some of the defected inflators might have not been replaced.

Honda Automobile (Thailand) regrets this inconvenience. We would like to assure our customers that we have made this announcement to demonstrate our commitment to their safety.
