In its press statement released August 8 2017 Honda Malaysia announced that as of now some 70% of the affected Takata Driver & Passenger front airbag inflators has been replaced, adding among others that as of August 2017 Honda Malaysia stock availability is at 100%, and the completion ratios for both the Takata airbag inflators are at 81.2% for the driver front airbag inflators and 59.5% for the passenger’s.
Honda Malaysia also remains unabated in the airbag replacement activities throughout Malaysia. Efforts at Mobile Hubs in selected Shopping Malls and PETRONAS Station Hubs will continue, providing convenient venues for customers to replace the affected Takata front airbag inflators. Honda Malaysia would like to thank PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad (PBD) for their strong support and collaboration for this important safety campaign.
To make access to replacement activities even easier for affected customers, the Honda Malaysia Mobile Hub in various Shopping Malls in Peninsular Malaysia will be available every weekend in the month of August.
On a serious note Honda Malaysia reiterates how critical it is to replaced the defective Takata front airbag inflators immediately as they may deploy with excessive internal pressure when activated. The airbag inflator casing might rupture, which may result in injury or fatality of the driver and passenger.
Affected customers are strongly encouraged to make an appointment at any Honda Authorised Service Centre to avoid delays or setbacks in replacing the Takata front airbag inflators. Meanwhile, replacement activities at the Mobile Hubs in selected Shopping Malls and PETRONAS Station Hubs do NOT require advance appointment; walk-ins are welcomed at these locations.
