In 2014, Honda recalled more than 5 million vehicles in the United States due to faulty air bags. The airbags ruptured when deployed and had the potential to cause fragments of metal to be propelled into the car.
At least four deaths have been attributed to the air bag hazard and occurred in Honda or Acura cars that were made by Honda Motors.
Honda also recalled certain models of the Honda Civic LX that were manufactured from November 26, 2013, through January 21, 2014, due to tire beads that may have caused damage to the tires during production. The tires could lose air as a result and have the potential to increase the risk of a crash.
