Honda recalls 1,252 Crosstours over side air bags

Honda is recalling 1,252 Crosstour vehicles due to a faulty side air bag made by troubled air bag supplier Takata.

The Honda recall is for 2015 model year Crosstours. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the side air bag may not inflate properly because of a problem with its inflator tube. Crosstour owners will receive a letter in the mail asking them to take their car to a Honda dealer and have the side air bags replaced free of charge.

Honda said no injuries were reported. Takata Corp. declined to comment.

Takata, a Japanese air bag maker, is at the center of massive recalls around the world. Several automakers have recalled vehicles with air bags made by the company because they can explode and send shards flying at drivers and passengers. In response to the recalls, Takata on Wednesday apologized to those killed or hurt by its faulty and announced it was reshuffling its executives.
