Over a year ago, Honda announced a plan to recall less than 4,000 Accord and Civic models from model year 2001 in the U.S. to replace the driver's side airbag inflator. At the time, the company cited four instances where airbag deployments had ruptured airbag inflators.
Then in July, Honda responded to reports of two additional incidents, including a fatality, by expanding the recall to include over 440,000 model year 2001 and 2002 Accord, Civic and Acura TL vehicles in the U.S..
In total, the recalls included 514,355 units in North America, Japan and other regions since November 2008 and July 2009, Honda said in a statement Wednesday in Tokyo.
But now Honda has expanded that recall to include another 437,763 model 2001 and 2002 vehicles worldwide. That figure includes 378,758 more vehicles in the U.S.
The car maker also added versions of the 2002 Pilot and Acura CL to the recall.
