Dongfeng Honda to recall over one million vehicles

BEIJING — Dongfeng Honda will recall more than one million vehicles due to defective airbags, China’s quality watchdog said on Friday.

The recall, set to begin on July 31, affects 533,350 CR-V models manufactured between April 12, 2006 and Jan. 12, 2012, 456,581 Civic sedans produced between Aug. 2, 2005 and Aug. 19, 2011, 48,309 Spirior vehicles made between Sept. 18, 2009 and Nov. 15, 2011, and 684 imported Civic Hybrid cars manufactured between March 19, 2007 and Oct. 5, 2010, according to a statement from China’s General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine.

Fragments might fly out from airbags of the affected cars when airbags are deployed, posing safety risks, the statement said.
