Honda Vehicles Need Passenger-Side Takata Replacement

It’s a new year, so we’re out with the old and in with the … ahh, crap. There’s another Takata recall for Honda owners? 2018 … 2017 … it’s all the same.

The Takata airbag inflators are at risk of exploding due to the metal inflators that contain the explosive chemical, ammonium nitrate. The chemical can become unstable due to heat, time and moisture, something that has already killed at least 21 people worldwide, most of those deaths occurring in Honda vehicles.

This recall involves 717,000 vehicles which, I believe, brings the grand total of recalled vehicles to 72 quadrillion or so.
