Having been actively replacing affected Takata front airbag deflators since 2014, Honda Malaysia has announced that completion is almost at 70% as at August 2017. Completion rate for the replacement of Takata driver airbag is at 81.2% and 59.5% for the front passenger airbag inflators.
Honda Malaysia has ensured that the stock availability for Takata driver and passenger front airbag inflators is at 100% as of August 2017 for customers convenience and peace of mind.
The same dedication is not neglected elsewhere around Malaysia as Mobile Hubs in selected Shopping Malls and PETRONAS Station Hubs will continue, providing convenient venues for customers to replace the affected Takata front airbag inflators – credit to the support of PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad (PBD) in this campaign.
The Honda Malaysia Mobile Hub in various Shopping Malls in Peninsular Malaysia will be available every weekend in the month of August for ease of access to replacement by affected Honda customers. Locations and operating hours of these replacement activities are as per the table above.
It is vital that all affected Honda customers replace the defective Takata front airbag inflators immediately as they may deploy with excessive internal pressure when activated. The airbag inflator casing might rupture, resulting in injury or even fatality to the driver and passenger.
Affected customers are strongly encouraged to make an appointment at any Honda Authorised Service Centre to avoid delays or setbacks in replacing the Takata front airbag inflators. Meanwhile, customers can simply walk-in without advance appointments for replacement activities at the Mobile Hubs in selected Shopping Malls and PETRONAS Station Hubs.
Honda customers can check their vehicle’s recall status either by logging on to www.honda.com.my or www.productrecall.honda.com.my or by calling the Honda Toll Free number 1-800-88-2020.
