The replacement would be carried out free of cost at official Honda dealerships across India, starting from 4th June 2015 in a phased manner, and the company will communicate with customers owning the affected cars directly. So far, no incidents related to the faulty airbags have been reported in India.

This is part of a global campaign by Honda of fixing a potential defect related to airbags. It started in June 2013 when Honda recalled 20 lakh global vehicles made in 2000-02 due to potentially flawed airbag inflators made in 2000-02. The company had also recently announced another recall affecting 4.89 million vehicles globally to fix the airbag issue.
