In an effort to keep their promise, Honda Malaysia has confirmed that replacement parts for the driver front airbag inflators is now 100 percent available. As of this week, Honda Malaysia has carried out 175,000 airbag replacement while 55 percent of the remaining vehicles affected have yet to be rectified. Honda urges affected owners to come forward and get the parts replaced.
However, there is a global shortage for passenger side front airbags inflators, and replacement parts are not a 100 percent state yet. Honda Malaysia assures that they are working road the clock to resolve this shortage, and apologises for any inconvenience caused.
