Honda to recall 245,000 vehicles to fix Takata airbags

Chinese regulators announced that Honda Motor Co. and partner Guangzhou Automobile Group Co. will recall 245,000 vehicles to fix Takata-supplied airbags that could explode if exposed to extreme heat and humidity for long periods.

Honda’s Chinese joint venture, Guangqi Honda Automobile Co., will launch its recall on Oct. 23, according to the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, China’s quality watchdog.

The recall follows an announcement this month that FAW-Volkswagen and SAIC Volkswagen would recall 4.9 million vehicles to fix Takata airbags.

This year, the agency had asked Volkswagen, General Motors and Mercedes-Benz to recall vehicles with Takata airbags.

Twenty million cars in China had airbags made by Takata, which have been linked to at least 16 deaths and 180 injuries globally, according to official Chinese estimates.

The recalls are part of the auto industry’s huge global effort to replace tens of millions of Takata airbags that have ammonium nitrate inflators.
