More Than 2 Million Toyotas, Hondas & Nissans RecalledApril 25th, 2013 by 1800thelaw2
If you own a Toyota, Honda or Nissan vehicle and haven’t received notice about a recall, you may want to call your dealership anyway. Earlier this month, more than 2 million vehicles were recalled worldwide due to faulty air bags. The car manufacturers have discovered a common problem in passenger-side air bags: bursting inflators that send plastic pieces flying when ignited.
In the U.S. alone, there have been nearly 600,000 Toyota recalls, including the popular Corolla, Tundra and Camry models from 2001-2003; more than 1 million Honda recalls including the Civic, CR-V and Odyssey models from 2002-2003; and nearly 500,000 Nissan recalls, including the Cube, X-Trail and Teana models.
The defect is reported to have been caused by a failure that occurred during production, when defective products were exposed to humidity. Although no injuries have been reported to date, four incidents have been reported in the U.S. and another six in Japan.
Don’t wait to contact your local dealership if you drive one of the models listed above or believe your car could be part of the Toyota recalls, Honda recalls or Nissan recalls. Getting the problem fixed as soon as possible can help prevent injury to your loved ones and damage to your vehicle.
