The addition of the additive and was thought to be a solution to the problem with the original air bags that were been found to activate with too much force in a crash, spraying the interior of vehicles with metal parts and leading to the recall of some 37 million vehicles in the U.S.

The inflators covered by this recall were used as replacement parts in recalls that began in 2014.

CBS News is reporting that Honda is recalling 1.2 million older models in the United States, Canada and Central America because of a faulty Takata driver's side air bag inflators.

Automakers in the United States repaired more than 7.2 million defective Takata air bag inflators in 2018, as companies have ramped up efforts to track down parts in need of replacement. The vehicle was included in one of Honda's earliest campaigns to replace Takata air bag inflators that contained a propellant that can become unstable and explode in a crash, a defect linked to more than a dozen deaths and at least 220 injuries worldwide. As many as 70 million will be recalled.

"A subsequent investigation revealed that PSDI-5D inflators manufactured at Takata's Monclova, Mexico facility experienced manufacturing process errors that introduced excessive moisture into the inflator during assembly", the statement continued.

Vehicles connected to the voluntary recall includes the 2003 Acura 3.2CL, 2013-16 Acura ILX, 2003-06 Acura MDX, 2002-03 Acura 3.2TL, 2004-06 and 2009-14 Acura TL, 2007-16 Acura RDX, 2010-13 Acura ZDX, 2001-07 and 2009 Honda Accord, 2001-05 Honda Civic, 2002-07 and 2010-11 Honda CR-V, 2003-11 Honda Element, 2007 Honda Fit, 2002-04 Honda Odyssey, 2003-08 Honda Pilot and 2006-14 Honda Ridgeline. In early February 2019, Honda Ridgeline vehicles were recalled for catching fire when going through a auto wash.

Under the terms of an agreement with the agency, Takata has until the end of this year to prove that inflators with the moisture-absorbing chemical are safe or they all will have to be recalled. In addition, owners can get a free rental vehicle for the day of the recall fix, or longer if a replacement part is temporarily unavailable, Honda says.
