It is important that affected owners immediately replace the defective Takata front airbag inflators 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.
Honda Malaysia remains committed to ensure the safety of Honda customers via replacement activities at selected shopping malls nationwide and mobile sales roadshow in shopping malls on every weekend in the month of July. This is in addition to the ongoing replacement activities at all authorized Honda dealers and selected Petronas Stations.
The replacement activities at selected Petronas Stations will continue operating as usual. Honda Malaysia would like to thank PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad (PDB) for their support throughout the collaboration period where many owners managed to have their affected Takata front airbag inflators replaced.
Honda Malaysia will continue with the ongoing replacement activities at Shopping Mall Hubs across Malaysia, with more venues being added. The Shopping Mall Hubs will provide further convenience to affected customers as it will be ongoing on every weekend in the month of July, beginning 8 July 2017*.
Honda Malaysia strongly urges affected owners to make an appointment at any Authorised Honda Service Centres to avoid any delays or setbacks. However, replacement activities at selected Shopping Mall Hubs and Petronas Stations DO NOT require advanced appointment*. Customers are encouraged to bring their vehicles only to authorised Honda dealers, selected Shopping Mall Hubs and Petronas
