Honda has replaced 300,000 Takata inflators in Mexico
Honda de Mexico announced that it has replaced more than 300,000 defective Takata airbag inflators, representing half of the potentially affected vehicles in Mexico.
The company made it clear that the effort is not going to stop until it has repaired as many affected units as possible, which include both Honda and Acura models, hence the different channels are still available for the public to make contact with the Japanese automaker.
The first and most effective route is to take the vehicle to any dealership in the country, where technicians check the serial number (VIN) in order to identify if the unit represents any risk. If so, they proceed to replace the inflator at no cost to the customer.
The verification can also be done through the company’s social networks, through the official website www.honda.mx/recall, and by calling the free-toll line 01-800-368-8500 where all the information on the subject is provided.
