Honda and Acura owners can checking whether their vehicles are on the list using this website.

Worldwide, 23 people have been killed by the exploding airbags, and at least 180 people have been injured by the faulty airbags, which can send metal parts spraying through the car’s interior when the defective inflators overheat and explode.

The current phase of this airbag recall expands on similar airbag recalls by Toyota. Millions of vehicles from car makers including BMW, Daimler, Fiat Chrysler, General Motors, and Subaru have also been impacted by the ongoing recall.

All told, Takata has been forced to schedule recalls on more than 100 million airbag inflators worldwide by the end of 2019. The record-setting recall has pushed Japanese airbag-maker Takata into bankruptcy proceedings in the U.S. and Japan, making it the biggest bankruptcy ever for a Japanese manufacturer. Takata was purchased in 2017 by Chinese-owned U.S. mobility safety company Key Safety System.

Separately, Honda is recalling about 200,000 additional autos due to software glitches involving rear cameras.

Honda has advised that owners of cars on the airbag recall list can schedule a free airbag replacement at a Honda dealership.
