RDX Airbag Inflator Recall - Again?

March 6, 2019 NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 19V182000
Driver Frontal Air Bag Inflator May Explode
An explosion of an inflator within the driver frontal air bag module may result in sharp metal fragments striking the driver, front seat passenger or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

NHTSA Campaign Number: 19V182000

Manufacturer Honda (American Honda Motor Co.)

Components AIR BAGS

Potential Number of Units Affected 1,108,939

Summary

Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling specific 2003 Acura 3.2CL, 2013-2016 ILX, 2013-2014 ILX Hybrid, 2003-2006 MDX, 2007-2016 RDX, 2002-2003 3.2TL, 2004-2006, and 2009-2014 TL, 2010-2013 ZDX and 2001-2007 and 2009 Honda Accord, 2001-2005 Civic, 2003-2005 Civic Hybrid, 2001-2005 Civic GX NGV, 2002-2007 and 2010-2011 CR-V, 2003-2011 Element, 2007 Fit, 2002-2004 Odyssey, 2003-2008 Pilot, and 2006-2014 Ridgeline vehicles. The affected vehicles received a replacement driver air bag inflator as part of a previous Takata inflator recall remedy or a replacement driver air bag module containing the same inflator type as a service part. Due to a manufacturing error, in the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver frontal air bag, these inflators may explode.

From:

NHTSA US article also applies to Canadian products although not listed yet on Canadian Honda recall list.

Oops. Does it mean our airbags which were replaced, still needed to be replaced again. Anyone has an idea?

It would appear so.

The affected vehicles received a replacement driver air bag inflator as part of a previous Takata inflator recall remedy or a replacement driver air bag module containing the same inflator type as a service part.

That's the way I read it too.

Ours is not on the NHTSA recall list...yet. It might just be too early for them all to be listed.

OTOH, another article I read said that the parts are available so hopefully it won't be a six month wait like last time.

Definitely not a long wait. I found out about the recall on Monday and scheduled and appointment for this morning. Went there and 2 hours later recall done and I was on my way.

Had my 14 RDX done, off to the dealer again. No recall notice yet.

I didn't get an official notice in the mail either. I read about it in the news and called the dealership. After confirming my VIN is affected, they set me up with an appointment right away to get it fixed.
