TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Drivers of Honda/Acura cars with potentially defective airbags are getting another warning to have those airbags replaced.
The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and Honda/Acura are urging owners of certain 2001-03 models to immediately take them to authorized dealers. The public notice is a follow-up to urgent notices sent last month to most of the owners of the defective cars.
To search for an authorized dealer, visit www.recalls.honda.com or www.recalls.acura.com. A list of affected models is below:
It’s part of a massive recall of Takata airbags that encompasses 17 automakers and millions of vehicles. It’s the largest auto recall in U.S. history, and the airbags have caused at least 11 deaths.
If you’re unsure whether you have a car that’s effective, check the vehicle identification number, or VIN, found in the top left corner of the dashboard through the windshield. Enter the number into the VIN check on www.recalls.honda.com, www.recalls.acura.com or www.safercar.gov.
