The National Highway Traffic Safety Admin­is­tration is warning owners of more than 300,000 Hondas and Acuras that they should not drive the cars until the defective Takata airbags are replaced.

NHTSA stated that recent testing has shown the airbags in these vehicles have a much higher risk of exploding and killing a driver or passenger. The airbags have a 50% chance of exploding when they are deployed in an accident, while other Takata airbags have a less than 1% chance of exploding.  NHTSA went on to say that “The risk posed by the airbag inflators in these vehicles is grave, and it is critical they be repaired now to avoid more deaths and serious injuries.”

NHTSA and Honda are asking for help to locate all unrepaired vehicles. Anyone driving one of these vehicles should contact their nearest dealer to schedule a no-cost immediate repair. Replacement parts for these vehicles are available immedi­ately.

NHTSA: New test data on particular subset of Takata air bag inflators shows substan­tially higher risk
