    Honda expand driver's airbag inflator recall for Honda & Acura(worldwide)

    "The company will replace the driver's side air bag inflator on the cars because they can deploy with too much pressure, causing the inflator to rupture and injure or kill the driver.

    The recall now affects more than 822,000 vehicles, including certain 2001 and 2002 Accord sedans, Civic compacts, Odyssey minivans, CR-V small sport utility vehicles and some 2002 Acura TL sedans."

    Interesting!

    I received severe burns from the airbag of my 2001 Civic. But, I lived. So I'm thankful.

    Thanks for posting this - I haven't heard anything about this recall! I forwarded it on to my mom, she has an '02 Odyssey and Civic.
