Honda (HMC) Accused of Misreporting Defective Airbag Incidents

Honda Motors (HMC) has been accused of misreporting the number of defective airbag incidents involving its vehicles.

honda-hmc-defective-airbagsThese claims come from the watchdog group The Center for Auto Safety. According to the group, Honda didn’t accurately report the number of defective airbag incidents to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reports The Detroit News.

The Center for Auto Safety claims that Honda didn’t report two incidents in its Early Warning Reports. The first was a 2009 fatality and the second occurred in August 2013 and resulted in serious injury, The Detroit News notes.

Following The Center for Auto Safety’s claims, Honda revealed that it has a third party conducting an audit that will report if it didn’t report defective airbag incidents. This audit was started in September and the car manufacturer plans to share its results with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reports Bloomberg.

HMC shares were down 1% as of Thursday afternoon.
