The fault has been found with the driver side airbag inflator. Honda says that the baffle plate in the inflator could be incorrectly installed and owing to this, the pressure may rise excessively in case of deployment leading to damage of the container. The most units recalled belong to the Amaze model numbering at 1235 followed by the Brio hatchback at 1040 units. The CR-V SUV is also affected but in meagre quantity – just 63.
