Honda joined a huge list of other carmakers by issuing a huge recall on around 3 million of its vehicles due to an issue with their airbags, and has now become a huge issue throughout the world. Most of these recalls are in the US and Japan, with the rest in the UK and other parts of Europe.
Even though it has now been a few days since we learned of the problem, it would seem that some Honda owners are still confused because they are uncertain if they are affected by this recall, and so we thought we would help to makes things a little easier.
Honda Airbag recall VIN check — While we cannot help people affected by this issue in every country, we can for those of you in the US, Canada and the UK.
If you are a returning Honda customer, then you can log in, which could make things easier, but failing that, all you need to do is enter your Honda Vehicle Identification Number on the US website and you are good to go.
Canada calls its service a little different, the VIN recall/product update lockup. They even offer advice on where to find this unique number.
Finally, we have the Honda UK website and its updates and recalls page. You can enter your VIN in the provided box to lookup your car to see if it is affected by this recall.
