crossreference: Last month's 871,000 RECALL

Honda recalls more than 748,000 vehicles for faulty airbag - L.A.Times

...The automaker says some of the vehicles may be missing a rivet that holds the airbag's plastic cover in place when it deploys. This could lead to the airbag inflating improperly and could cause the plastic cover to come loose and strike the driver or passengers.

The recall affects 276,153 Odyssey minivans made from 2011 to 2013 and 472,690 Pilot SUVs made from 2009 to 2013...

...The replacement process could take at least two days, as Honda dealers would have to order each new airbag individually...

...This is the second large recall Honda has done in the last month. In December, the company recalled more than 800,000 Odyssey and Pilot models made in 2003 and 2004. The issue was a faulty ignition lock that led to several reports of vehicles rolling away and injuring owners.
