Honda rules out recalling vehicles in UAE
Trading Enterprises, the UAE dealer for Honda has said that all vehicles sold by Honda in UAE meet global security standards without having any fault. The company has ruled out recall of its models from the UAE market in line with the similar announcements made by rival Japanese company Toyota.
Some of the models sold by Honda in the international markets reportedly have faults in their airbag which can be fatal in event of sudden accidents. The large scale reports of such faults made the company to recall some of its models from the United States and some Asian markets.
Dealers in UAE, however, ruled out any impact of Honda's car sales in the market due to strong faith of consumers in Honda's products. A company official in Dubai said that the company, the second-largest auto-maker in Japan, recalled almost 95,000 vehicles globally over complaints of faulty airbags.
Mark Kass, Managing Director of Trading Enterprises, the UAE distributor of Honda products added, "The recall relates to a dual-igniter type inflator which is not found in models in the UAE. Cars sold in the UAE use a single-igniter type inflator."
