Honda recalls Accord

DETROIT: Honda is recalling more than 300,000 Accord midsize cars in the US because the side airbags can inflate if a door is slammed too hard. The recall covers Accords from the 2008 and 2009 model years. Honda says the side impact sensor can activate the side curtain and side seat airbags if there’s a non-vehicle impact to the lower body or a door is shut with extreme force. The ignition has to be on for the problem to happen. Nineteen people have filed injury claims with Honda due to the problem.
