Honda says that it has added more than 917,000 vehicles to a recall over airbag inflators that can deploy with excessive pressure. So far, the Japanese automaker has recalled about 2.8 million vehicles worldwide.

The latest addition to the recall includes models primarily sold in North America, including 2001 and 2002 Accords, 2001 through 2003 Civics, 2001 through 2003 Odysseys, 2002 and 2003 CR-Vs and 2003 Pilots. Acura models listed in the recall include 2002 and 2003 3.2 TLs and 2003 3.2 CLs.

Owners of affected vehicles should begin receiving recall notices from the Japanese automaker soon.

The recall first began more than three years ago and it grew earlier this year after Honda added about 1.6 million vehicles. Honda says that this is its largest-ever global recall.
