JAKARTA, May 8 (Xinhua) -- PT Honda Prospect Motor (HPM), a subsidiary of Honda Motor Co., Ltd. in Indonesia, has recalled 2,856 Accord sedans manufactured from 2003 to 2007 due to a problem on the airbag inflator, the carmaker said on Wednesday.
The company said in a statement that there was potential for the airbag inflator expanding excessively which will endanger drivers and passengers.
The firm asked the owners of the vehicles to immediately have their airbag inflators replaced in licensed Honda dealers.
Indonesia, southeast Asia's biggest economy, is one of the world's fastest growing markets for automobiles.
In 2018, automakers sold a total of 1,151,413 cars in the country, up from 1,079,886 units in the previous year, according to data from Indonesia's car association.
