Airbag Recalls (New List, no MDX)

So this has bothered me every since Honda/Acura started the recalls, why is the every other model recalled but not the MDX?

Have they not recalled the MDX because they have so many to replace, or is the Airbags not affected? Am I driving a time bomb?


The expanded recall includes the following models:
  • 2010-2012 Acura RL
  • 2010-2014 Acura TSX
  • 2011-2014 Acura TSX Wagon
  • 2010-2013 Acura ZDX
  • 2010-2012 Honda Accord
  • 2010-2015 Honda Crosstour
  • 2010-2011 Honda Civic
  • 2010-2011 Honda CR-V
  • 2010-2011 Honda Element
  • 2014 Honda FCX Clarity
  • 2010-2013 Honda Fit
  • 2014 Honda Fit EV
  • 2010-2014 Honda Insight
  • 2010-2015 Honda Pilot
  • 2010-2014 Honda Ridgeline

The 07-13 MDX steering wheel design looks older and outdated compared to the ZDX design. Acura might have used a different type of airbag for the MDX?

I realized that I was wrong about ZDX/MDX Dash and edited my original post, but I still feel concerned. It would be great to find out the MDX doesn't use takata airbag at all, than to be surprised that they were susceptible all along.
Thank-you for the info.

I am always curious who made the air bags for 2007-2009 MDX. Anyone knows? Thanks.
