2010 Honda Accord Crosstour: Recall
September 15, 2010
Honda is recalling more than 3,000 Crosstours in the U.S. due to a possible problem with the front passenger airbag.
U.S. Federal Regulation requires that airbag deployment be tested using an unbelted six-year-old-sized child dummy in the front passenger seat. Certain airbag modules installed in a limited numbers of 2010 Honda Accord Crosstours do not meet this requirement.
Of course, in the U.S., many states do not allow children under 6 years old to ride in the front seat of a vehicle, and certainly not unbelted.
The recall starts September 22. We'll let you know if our vehicle is one of the affected.
