US investigates Honda Odyssey minivans for air bag trouble
DETROIT (AP) - US safety regulators have added about 320,000 older model Honda Odyssey minivans to a widening probe of faulty air bags that affects at least three automakers and more than 2 million vehicles.
Front air bags on the Honda Motor minivans from the 2003 and 2004 model years can inflate without a crash, possibly injuring drivers and passengers.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says in documents posted on Monday on its website that the vans have the same air bag control computers that already have caused Toyota Motor and Chrysler Group to recall more than 1.8 million vehicles worldwide.
The air bag control computers were made by auto parts supplier TRW Automotive.
