Mumbai, July 2016: Honda Cars India Ltd. (HCIL) is voluntarily recalling over 1,90,000 vehicles to replace Takata front airbag inflators which have been causing problems for automobile manufacturers around the world.

Already, the company has recalled more than 3 lakh vehicles to fix the problem.

The recall of the 1,90,578 vehicles, all previous generation Accord, CR-V, Civic City and Jazz, is part of the parent company’s recall schedule. In India, no incidents related to the faulty airbag inflators have been reported.

The automobile major will replace the part free of cost. Customers will be contacted directly by the company or its dealers. They can also check whether their cars are covered under this campaign by submitting their 17 character alpha-numeric Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) on the special micro site which has been created on the company’s website, an HCIL press release said.

As of now, India does not have a mandatory recall policy for vehicles, but automobile manufacturers have been voluntarily recalling their products over various issues.
