MIDLAND - Another major auto recall is causing some confusion for drivers.

Honda is recalling a number of vehicles due to some air-bag problems but the big question was what cars are being affected?

Honda of Midland told NewsWest 9, they're getting flooded with calls from concerned car owners, but they stress no new cars are included in the updated recall.

The cars causing the most confusion are the 2001 and 2002 Accord sedans and Civic compacts, and the 2001 and 2002 Odyssey minivans and CRVs as well as the 2002 Acura TL sedans are also on the list.

If your car's affected, the dealership says they can easily order a part to fix the problem.

"Because it is a safety related item, it is something Honda wants to step-up and make sure that it's taken care of," Bill Cox with Honda of Midland, said. "I think there are very few instances where this has actually happened but Honda wants to make sure there's no possibility of any problems with the airbag not deploying properly."

Honda says one death and 11 injuries have been reported due to the air bags.

The company first recalled less than 4,000 cars in 2008, but the list has expanded and now includes about 950,000 vehicles world-wide.
