Further to the Takata airbag recall earlier this year, Honda will as a precautionary measure, recall a small number of potentially affected 2004 Jazz and 2012 – 2014 Brio vehicles, in order to replace the driver’s SRS airbag module.
In certain vehicles, the driver’s SRS airbag may deploy with excessive pressure during an accident which could result in the rupture of the airbag inflator canister. Should this happen, the possibility exists that small fragments might enter the passenger compartment potentially causing injury. Honda Motor Southern Africa has no reported injuries or incidents related to this recall.
A small number of Hondas in South Africa are potentially affected with 481 Jazz 2004 model year and 536 Brio 2012 to 2014 model year.
As a precautionary measure, owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by Honda Motor Southern Africa requesting them to make an appointment with their Honda dealer for replacement of the airbag module. Recall repairs will begin within the second week of December.
