Honda Malaysia’ s additional pro-active measures
Petaling Jaya, 23 February 2017 – Honda Malaysia announced today that it will increase the locations to replace Takata front airbag inflators in order to add more convenience to affected customers in its commitment to ensure the safety of customers.
In an effort to reach affected customers, we are now collaborating with Petronas Dagangan Berhad (PDB) so that owners can replace the relevant parts at selected Petronas Stations which are in addition to mobile hubs at shopping malls and all 84 authorized service centres
In addition to these venues, customers can also change their affected Takata front airbag inflators at the locations of Honda Family Road Trip (HFRT), an outdoor nationwide event filled with fun activities for the whole family.
It is crucial that the defective Takata front airbag inflators are replaced 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 is also working closely with the Road Transport Department (Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalanraya, JPJ) to approach current owners who are affected by the Takata airbag inflator issue.
As of 21 February 2017, the stock availability for Takata driver front airbag inflators is 100% with the joint efforts of dealers, the replacement of Takata driver front airbag inflators has now reached 75%. Meanwhile, the stock availability for Takata passenger front airbag inflators is now reaching 75%. Honda Malaysia is doing its utmost best to ensure the stock availability is further increased for Takata passenger front airbag inflators. These additional measures are being taken to improve the completion ratio of driver and passenger front airbag inflators replacement.
