Honda Warns Against Use of Salvaged or Used A

October 04, 2007

TORRANCE, Calif. --- Honda this week released a statement warning consumers about the risks associated with the installation of used air bag components. "The original air bag system components installed in a new Honda or Acura vehicle have been carefully designed for use in that vehicle, as have new Honda or Acura service air bag system components," the statement said. "American Honda Motor Co. Inc. (AHM) is confident that such air bag system components will help protect occupants in Honda and Acura vehicles. The installation and use of salvaged or used air bag system components in a Honda or Acura vehicle may compromise the intended performance of that vehicle's air bag system as there is no certainty of the history, quality, condition, or compatibility of a salvaged or used air bag system component."As a result, the company "recommends that only new Honda or Acura air bag system components designed and designated for use in the specific Honda or Acura vehicle being repaired be installed in that vehicle."
