Honda recall of some car models (Honda Civic and Honda Accord model 2001-2002) started in November of 2008. The Honda recall announced will affect 440,000 Civic and Accord units. Some airbags of Honda cars recalled in 2009 have been reported to over-inflate, shoot metal fragments and cause injuries or fatalities to the driver and/or passenger.

Honda will recall the cars with a good deal for car owners – that their airbags will be inspected and replaced free of charge. Honda maintains a good standing in customer care making them one of the top-sellers particularly in Asian countries like the Philippines and Japan.
