Honda Recalls 374,000 Vehicles in US over Airbag Issue

Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images(TORRANCE, Calif.) -- Honda is recalling close to 400,000 vehicles in the U.S. over an issue with its airbags.

In a statement Wednesday, the automaker said the recall affects 318,000 Honda Odysssey minivans (model years 2003 and 2004) and 56,000 Acura MDX sport-utility vehicles from the 2003 model year.  Honda says electrical interference in these vehicles may lead to malfunctions in their airbag systems.

While Honda has received some complaints of inadvertent airbag deployment, there have been no reported crashes stemming from this issue.

The automaker is asking customers affected by the recall to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer for a free repair.
