NHTSA issues 'do not drive' advisories for older Honda and Acura models
The NHTSA warned the public not to drive certain old Honda and Acura models until an issue with the airbag was fixed. The agency said the cars are equipped with Takata Alpha driver-side airbag inflators. These airbags, the NHTSA said, have a 50% failure rate in even minor collisions.
“If the inflators rupture, the metal fragments ejected toward the driver’s face could kill or leave them with devastating, life-altering injuries,” the agency said in its advisory.
Roughly 8,200 vehicles affected include:
2001-2002 Honda Accord.
2001-2002 Honda Civic.
2002 Honda CR-V.
2002 Honda Odyssey.
2003 Honda Pilot.
2002-2003 Acura 3.2 TL.
2003 Acura 3.2CL.
Each vehicle is under recall and qualifies for a free airbag repair, the NHTSA said. The advisory is the latest in a broader recall of Takata-made airbags that has affected millions of vehicles and led to at least 24 deaths in the United States.

2021 Volkswagen EVs may lose power while driving
Volkswagen said 20,904 of its 2021 Volkswagen ID4 electric vehicles are under recall because a battery management control module may reset, or, in rare cases, a pulse inverter may deactivate while the car is in transit. The issue could lead to a loss of power in the vehicle without warning and increase the risk of a crash, Volkswagen told the NHTSA.
Owners will be notified of the recall on March 31 and can receive a software update that should fix the issue, according to the NHTSA.

Kia said it would notify owners about the recall on Feb. 28 and offer a free repair.
