Honda Pushes Forward with Recall Ahead of Schedule

 

We know that California drivers in the El Cerrito area take safety seriously--so do we. That's why our team is proud to be a Honda partner.

Working with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Honda pushed forward with a new round of recalls related to issues with Takata airbags months ahead of schedule.

While the NHTSA didn't set scheduled recalls until December or even January, American Honda Motor Co. had the resources and the abilities to begin work early in the name of returning peace of mind to customers faster.

The Takata airbag recall touched nearly every major automaker in the country, and has so far affected around 37,000,000 vehicles.

Since the beginning, Honda has taken a progressive, and aggressive, approach to the situation, with consistent outreach to owners whose cars are under recall. In the past, Honda even sent door-to-door recall teams, who would transport vehicles to an authorized local dealer, replace the airbags, and then return it to the owner's home.

Currently, Honda has the replacement parts needed to accelerate the pace of its recall.

If your Honda is currently under recall, you may be eligible for free pickup or towing to Honda of El Cerrito, and even a complimentary loaner car if your repairs take longer than expected. Recall service and repairs are covered by the automaker, so don't let costs keep you from getting replacement airbags.
