The reason of the fault is that the propellant is in contact with temperature and humidity for a long time, which may result in too high pressure.
There have been no accidents involving these Honda cars in Vietnam. In January, Honda Motor Co. recalled 772,000 additional Honda and Acura vehicles in the US for a defective front passenger seat air bag.
