Honda to recall more than 2 lakhs cars over Airbag safety issue

Safety is one of the important concerns of today`s buyer and equally important for the seller. To meet the safety concerns of the driver and passengers Honda Cars India Ltd. today announced to recall more than 2 lakh vehicles including 2009-2011 Jazz, 2007-2012 City, 2003-2012 Civic and 2004-2011 CR-V when they spotted a malfunction in the Takata airbag inflators.

Needless to say that this replacement will be done free of cost. To ensure hassle free and smooth replacement of parts Honda has setup a link on their website wherein the owners of the respective Honda models can login and enter the 17 character Chassis number.
