Two Honda models and one Toyota model have been recalled recently due to faulty airbags.
The Honda recall affects certain 2012 Honda Accords and Honda Crosstour, while the Toyota recall affects certain 2011 Toyota RAV4 vehicles.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), airbags in the Accord sedan and Crosstour vehicles may not properly inflate. The inflator for the side curtain airbags on the driver or passenger sides may have been manufactured incorrectly. If an accident occurs, the airbags may not deploy.
The safety recall for the 2012 Honda Accord and Crosstour models will begin on February 10th. It is expected that 347 vehicles are affected by the recall.
With regard to the Toyota recall, there are problems with the inflator in the curtain shield airbags of the 2011 RAV4. The affected vehicles were manufactured between November 24th and December 19th of last year. The inflator may fail and cause the airbags not to deploy. This recall is expected to start in March. It is expected that 427 vehicles are affected.
