Automaker recalls 374k vehicles due to potential airbag malfunction

At least 374,000 vehicles were recalled by automaker giant Honda Motors Co. due to an electrical issue that may cause its airbag to malfunction, a report on Monday, September 23 stated.

The recall affects some 318,000 2003-2004 models of Honda Odyssey and 56,000 2003 models of Honda Acura MDX SUVs that may have its airbag to inflate unintentionally due to the supplemental restraint system (SRS) being affected by an electrical interference.

In the past months, numerous complaints of sudden airbag inflation were reported, but no accidents were linked to the issue. Honda said they will start fixing the problem by installing an electrical noise filter near the SRS of the recalled minivans and sport-utility vehicles before November.
