Faulty airbag victim ignored five recalls

HONDA Australia has revealed that the driver killed by a faulty airbag in Sydney on July 13 had received five recall notices over the past 16 months — but the car was not brought in for the replacement airbag which takes less than an hour to fit. “We extend our deepest sympathies to the family and have reached out to them,” said Honda Australia boss Stephen Collins. “But as investigations are ongoing it’s not appropriate for us to comment further.” When asked if Honda had sent a recall notice to…
