Honda on Friday announced in a news release that it has expanded a previously announced recall regarding airbag inflator issues in certain 2001-2003 Honda and Acura vehicles

Approximately 273,000 vehicles are included in the recall issued Friday. According to Honda, "affected driver’s airbag inflators may deploy with too much pressure, which can cause the inflator casing to rupture and could result in injury or fatality."

This recall now includes certain 2001 and 2002 Accord, 2001 to 2003 Civic, 2001 to 2003 Odyssey, 2002 and 2003 CR-V, 2003 Pilot, 2002 and 2003 Acura 3.2 TL and 2003 Acura 3.2 CL vehicles, according to Honda.
