Latest Honda recall does not affect UK

Honda has added 437,700 cars, mainly in North America, to its existing global safety recall. 

The recall involves inflation problems with the driver's airbag. Honda, Japan's second-biggest carmaker, has maintained that the defective airbags are only in cars built and supplied to the USA, Canada and Japan.

However, the announcement comes days after the UK recall of the previous generation Honda Jazz and on the same day that Toyota UK centres begin repairing the troublesome ‘sticky accelerator’ pedals on 180,000 vehicles in the UK.
