The airbag inflators may be defective and may create excessive internal pressure in the event of activation. As a result, the metal inflator casing may rupture, causing metal fragments to be propelled through the airbag and into the vehicle compartment. This may result in severe injury or even death to the vehicle occupants.
The Honda Legend models affected by this recall were manufactured between January 2001 and December 2015.

What the owner should do?
If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Honda dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.
If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
