2010 Honda Accord Crosstour recall: Front airbags faulty

By Gary Johnson - Sep 16, 2010

It now seems like a weekly occurrence that we have motor manufactures recalling some of their vehicles. The latest we have for you is that Honda are recalling certain 2010 Accord Crosstour models, 3,336 in total.

Bengt Halvorson of TheCar Connection is reporting that the vehicles are being recalled because the airbag unit doesn’t come up to federal regulation standards. Resent testing revealed the airbag fails to meet regulations on deployment on an unbelted six year old sized crash test dummy.

Owners will be notified by mail starting from the 22nd of this month, or they may contact their dealership themselves to check if their vehicle is affected. Honda recommends that all children under twelve be seated in the rear of vehicles, and in many states children aged six are not permitted to be seated in the front.

In the summer the Crosstour only received a ‘marginal score for its roof strength in a test taken out by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Click here to check if your Honda is part of the recall.
