Honda also stopped dealers from selling certain vehicles — including some CR-Vs and Insights — fitted with frontal driver air bag inflaters called PSDI-5, according to a document sent to dealers.
The 2.2 million vehicles recalled in the U.S. Wednesday were part of the 5 million vehicles world-wide that Honda said last month that it would have to recall.
In the U.S., Honda will start fixing the inflaters in these recalled vehicles in the summer of 2016 because replacement parts aren’t ready, it said.
The recalled vehicles include newer model years, up to 2016. They include certain cars from the 2009-2014 Fit, 2007-2014 Ridgeline and 2007-2016 Acura RDX.
