I RECEIVED
DRIVER AND PASSENGER AIRBAG RECALL NOTICE. VERY NEXT BUSINESS DAY,
I CALLED TWO CLOSE BY HONDA DEALERS TO GET AN APPOINTMENT TO GET
THE AIRBAGS FIXED, BUT BOTH SAID THEY DON'T HAVE THE PARTS AVAILABLE
TO REPLACE AND, WHILE THEY CAN ORDER IT NOW, IT MIGHT TAKE COUPLE
OF WEEKS TO RECEIVE THEM. I AM ASSUMING THEY ARE AWARE OF THESE
RECALLS, SO I AM SURPRISED THAT THEY DON'T HAVE PARTS AVAILABLE AND
THEY WILL ORDER ONLY WHEN SOMEONE CALLS. AND, I WILL BE DRIVING FOR
AT LEAST COUPLE OF WEEKS WITH THE RISK OF HAVING A DEFECTIVE AIRBAG.
NHTSA Consumer Complaints as of October 18, 2015
HONDA NEEDS TO UP THEIR GAME AND HAVE THESE PARTS AVAILABLE ALL
THE TIME OR WITHIN A SHORT NOTICE (1-2 DAYS), INSTEAD OF HAVING
CUSTOMERS WAIT FOR COUPLE OF WEEKS, THAT'S JUST VERY LONG TIME TO
RISK DRIVING.!

FRIDAY MORNING
(5/15/2015) AROUND 11:00AM I WAS DRIVING IN INTERSTATE WITH MY BROTHER
AS PASSENGER AND MY DAUGHTER AT BACK SEATING ON HER CARSEAT. I
FOLLOWED A CAR ABOUT 40FT IN FRONT OF ME WITH THE CRUISING SPEED
70MPH. SUDDENLY I SAW A SMALL TIRE FRAGMENT A SIZE OF XBOX
CONTROLLER AND CAREFULLY PASSED IN BETWEEN, SECONDS AFTER THERE
WAS A LOUD BANG INSIDE THE CAR I THOUGHT THE TIRE WAS BLOWN OUT. I
SLOWED DOWN AND PUT ON HAZARD SIGNAL AND MOVED MY CAR SAFELY ON
THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. I NOTICED THE PASSENGER SIDE CURTAIN AIRBAG
DEPLOYED. I SAFELY MADE A VISUAL CHECK ON MY TIRE, FRONT BUMPER,

IN MARCH 2015, I
RECEIVED A SAFETY RECALL NOTICE FROM HONDA (NHTSA RECALL 14V-351)
ADVISING ME TO HAVE THE DRIVER SIDE AIR BAG INFLATOR REPLACED AT MY
LOCAL HONDA DEALER AT NO COST. I IMMEDIATELY CALLED HONDA OF
DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES TO SCHEDULE A REPLACEMENT OF MY VEHICLE'S
INFLATOR. I WAS TOLD BY THEIR SERVICE CENTER THAT THEY WOULD ORDER
THE PART AND I WOULD BE CONTACTED WHEN IT ARRIVED. I CALLED BACK
TWO WEEKS LATER AS I HAD NOT RECEIVED A CALL AND THEY SAID THEY
WERE STILL WAITING ON THE RECALLED PART TO ARRIVE AND ASSURED ME I
WOULD GET A CALL. A MONTH LATER I HAD STILL NOT HEARD ANYTHING, SO I
CALLED AGAIN AND WAS AGAIN TOLD THAT I WOULD BE CALLED WHEN THE
PART ARRIVED. NOT UNTIL JULY 2015 DID I GET TWO NEW SAFETY RECALL
NOTICES FROM HONDA (NHTSA RECALL 15V-320 & 15V370). ONE RECALL WAS
FOR THE SAME DRIVER SIDE INFLATOR IN ADDITION TO THE PASSENGER SIDE
AIR BAG INFLATOR. I CALLED DIAMOND HONDA OF GLENDALE TO SCHEDULE
SERVICE, AND WHILE THE REQUIRED PARTS NEEDED TO BE ORDERED, A
SERVICE APPOINTMENT WAS ! MADE FOR ONE WEEK LATER. IN SHORT, I
RECEIVED A RECALL NOTICE FROM HONDA IN MARCH 2015 AND IT TOOK ME
CONTACTING TWO DIFFERENT SERVICE CENTERS MULTIPLE TIMES OVER A
FOUR MONTH PERIOD TO HAVE THE RECALL APPOINTMENT SCHEDULED. ..

I RECEIVED A
LETTER FROM HONDA AUTOMOBILE DIVISION ON SEPTEMBER 2014
REGARDING THE HONDA ACCORD RECALL FOR THE DRIVER FRONT AIRBAG
INFLATOR. (NHTSA RECALL 14V-351)
BECAUSE OF THIS I CONTACTED THE
NHTSA Consumer Complaints as of October 18, 2015
HONDA DEALER BELLA INTERNATIONAL IN SAN JUAN PR ON OCTOBER 22, 2014.
I WAS TOLD THAT THE PART WILL ARRIVE WITHIN A MONTH AND A HALF AND
THAT I WOULD BE RECEIVING A CALL TO MAKE THE APPOINTMENT FOR THE
REPAIR. THAT NEVER HAPPENED. I CALLED THREE MONTHS AND A WEEK
LATER ON JANUARY 28, 2015 AND THEY TOLD ME THAT THE THEY WERE
UNSURE IF THE PART WAS AVAILABLE UNDER THEIR INVENTORY AT THE
PONCE DEALER. I WAS TOLD THAT IT WAS HONDA AUTOMOBILE DIVISION
FAULT AND THAT I NEED TO WAIT AGAIN FOR AN UNKNOWN PERIOD OF TIME. I
ASK IF I COULD CALL THE PONCE DEALER AND THEY GAVE ME THE NAME OF A
PERSON THAT APPARENTLY HANDLES THEIR PART INVENTORY. THAT WAS IT. IN
ADDITION THEY DID NOT OFFER ANY APPOINTMENT AT OTHER DEALER OR TO
CHANGE THE PART TO FIX THE PROBLEM. AGAIN I WAS TOLD THAT I WOULD BE
CONTACTED LATER TO MAKE THE APPOI! NTMENT NOTHING MORE. BECAUSE
OF THIS I DECIDED TO MAKE A COMPLAINT BECAUSE I DO NOT WANT TO
SUFFER ANY INJURIES WHILE I WAIT BECAUSE OF THEIR LACK OF
RESPONSIBILITY AND INCOMPETENCE BY THEIR PART.!PONCE!

THE RECENT RECALL OF AIR BAGS HONDA HAD PURCHASED BY A CERTAIN
MANUFACTURER AND THE TIME FRAME BEING ALLOWED TO HONDA TO
RECTIFY, I FELT THE NEED TO UPDATE MY COMPLAINT. THE IMPACT TO THE
CAR IN FROM WAS SO MINIMAL THEY DID NOT HAVE A DENT, OUR AIRBAGS
DEPLOYED AT 30-35 MPH, READING OTHER COMPLAINTS, YES THE SOUND
WAS HORRIFIC, LIKELY TO HITTING A BRICK WALL, THE SEAT BELT TENSION
ROD SNAPPED AT THE IMPACT, MY EYELASHES WERE BURNT AND AT THE TIME
I REPORTED THE COMPLAINT I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT I HAD
SUFFERED TWO HERNIATE DISC'S FROM THIS. FAR WORSE, ONE DISC HAD
HERNIATED SO BADLY IT WAS PRESSING AGAINST MY SPINAL CORD, I WAS AT

SUDDENLY DEPLOYED FOR NO DISCERNIBLE REASON. WE DID NOT HIT

SHOP FOR AN INSPECTION (WE LIVED IN HOBOKEN, NJ AT THE TIME), AFTER
WHICH THEY INFORMED US THAT A SENSOR UNDERNEATH THE VEHICLE
SHOWED SIGNS OF DISTRESS/BEING STRUCK, WHICH TRIGGERED THE
DEPLOYMENT OF THE AIRBAGS. WE WERE SKEPTICAL THAT SOMETHING WE
COULD NOT/DID NOT FEEL WOULD HAVE CAUSED THIS, BUT AFTER MUCH

HAD TO GET OUR VEHICLE FUNCTIONING AGAIN WAS TO FILE AN INSURANCE

THE TIME I THOUGHT THAT I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF A CAR CRASH OR

BUT WHEN I TURNED TO SEE, ALL I SAW WAS MY SIDE AIRBAG CURTAIN
HANGING DOWN. THE SOUND ALONE SCARED ME HALF TO DEATH IT WAS THE

TO THE BREAKDOWN LANE TO CALM MY NERVOUS AN TRY TO FIGURE OUT
WHAT HAPPENED. WHEN I HAD THE CHANCE TO GET OUT AN LOOK @ MY CAR I
NOTICED THERE WAS NO SIGN OF IMPACT (NO DENTS, ETC.) I CALLED THE

HAPPENED AN THEY SAID THEY HAVE NEVER HEARD OF SUCH A THING
HAPPENING AN IF I HAD REPLACED ANYTHING ON MY CAR.. IT'S A BRAN NEW

REPLACED. THANK GOD NO ONE WAS IN MY PASSENGER SIDE SEAT WHICH
DOESN'T EXPLAIN WHY THE AIRBAGS WERE ON IN THE 1ST PLA !

THANK GOD I DIDN'T CRASH DUE TO THE HORRIFYING SOUND AND BEING
SCARED TO DEATH! MY EARS WERE RINGING FOR A GOOD HOUR AFTER IT
DEPLOYED. HONDA STATED THAT I MUST HAVE RAN SOMETHING OVER. THEY
PUT MY CAR ON A LIFT AN SAID THERE WAS A HOLE ON THE FLOOR OF MY CAR
WHICH WOULD HAVE TRIGGERED THE SENSOR WHICH THEN SET THE AIRBAG

NHTSA Consumer Complaints as of October 18, 2015
BEEN HELPFUL IN THIS WHOLE ORDEAL. PRETTY MUCH WHAT I GOT OUT OF
WHAT THEY SAID IS THAT ANYTIME THAT I RUN OVER ANY DEBRIS IN THE ROAD
THAT I NOW HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT MY SENSOR'S SETTING MY AIRBAGS OFF.
IF THEIR SENSOR'S ARE SO SENSITIVE THEN THIS CAN BE AN ONGOING ISSUE
AND IF IT HAPPENS TO SOMEONE ELSE THE OUTCOME COULD BE ALOT
WORSE.... *TR!

I AM CONCERNED
THAT HONDA HAS USED SUBSTANDARD BRAKE ROTORS AND FAULTY AIRBAG
EQUIPMENT ON SOME OF THEIR MODELS. I OWNED A 2007 HONDA ACCORD LX
THAT REQUIRED REPLACEMENT OF AIRBAG COMPONENTS WITHIN TWO
YEARS OF PURCHASE(THE CAR WAS NEW AT PURCHASE IN 2007). IT ALSO
DEVELOPED FAULTY BRAKING IN THE FORM OF VIBRATION AND EXCESSIVE
STOPPING DISTANCES WITHIN 18 MONTHS OF PURCHASE--THIS WAS UNDER
MILD DRIVING CONDITIONS. I HAVE BEEN TOLD BY HONDA THAT IT IS COMMON
FOR THEIR BRAKE ROTORS TO NEED TURNING WITHIN TWO YEARS OF
SERVICE, WHICH, BASED ON MY EXPERIENCE WITH VEHICLES, WOULD
CONSTITUTES A MARGINALLY SOUND BRAKE ROTOR. SUBSTANDARD
BRAKING EQUIPMENT COUPLED WITH QUESTIONABLE AIRBAG COMPONENTS
COULD LEAD TO CATASTROPHIC CONSEQUENCES IN THE EVENT OF AN
INCURSION OR NEAR-INCURSION. *TR!

MULTIPLE
ELECTRICAL DIFFICULTIES VEHICLE HAS BEEN AT THE DEALERSHIP ON 2
SEPARATE OCCASIONS DUE TO SPORADIC WORKING OF THE POWER DOOR
LOCKS AND KEYLESS ENTRY SYSTEM. THEY STILL HAVE NOT FOUND THE
ISSUE. IT IS WORSE WHEN IT IS HUMID AND/OR RAINS. DURING THE WINTER
MONTHS OF 2007/2008; THE STEREO'S LCD WENT WARPED AND THE WHOLE
STEREO HAD TO BE REPLACED. ON MEMORIAL DAY 2008; THE DRIVERS SIDE
SEAT CAUGHT FIRE WHILE I WAS SITTING IN IT PARKED WAITING ON MY
CHILDREN TO COME OUT OF A THEME PARK. MY HUSBAND BURNED HIS HAND
TRYING TO PUT OUT THE FIRE; AND WAS OUT OF WORK FOR ABOUT 2-WEEKS
NHTSA Consumer Complaints as of October 18, 2015
DUE TO THE BURN. THE DEALERSHIP AND HONDA REFUSED TO TAKE
RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS FIRE; WHICH STARTED INSIDE THE SEAT DUE TO
THE ELECTRONIC SEATS AND/OR HEATED LEATHER SEATS, AS DETERMINED
BY THE INSURANCE COMPANY APPRAISER. THE SEAT HAD TO BE REPLACED,
THE ELECTRONIC SEAT COMPONENTS, HEATED LEATHER SEAT COMPONENTS,
PART OF THE CENTER CONSOLE, AND THE CARPETING AND FLOOR MATS. WE
GOT THE CAR BACK ON JULY 3. ON MONDAY, JULY 7;!
MY HUSBAND TOOK
THE CAR TO HAVE IT INSPECTED (AT THE DEALERSHIP); SINCE THE STATE
INSPECTION WAS PAST DUE. THEY REJECTED THE INSPECTION STATING THAT
THE ELECTRONIC SYSTEM IS NOT RECOGNIZING THE SEAT BELTS. THEY
LATER CHANGED THEIR TUNE WHEN I CALLED THEM AND ARE NOW TRYING TO
SAY IT WASN'T THAT IT WAS THE AIRBAG WASN'T HOOKED UP; AND THEY
COULD FIX IT. I KNOW THEY ARE LYING, AND THEY ARE TRYING TO COVER
THEIR TRACKS AS THIS I AM SURE IS JUST ANOTHER ELECTRICAL ISSUE IN MY
CAR. I AM AT MY WITS END ON WHAT TO DO WITH THIS CAR. I CAN'T AFFORD
TO TRADE IT IN, I HAVE SPENT OVER $1000 ON RENTAL CARS WAITING FOR IT
TO BE REPAIRED, AND NOW THIS. ALSO, THE POWER DOOR LOCKS STILL DO
NOT WORK. *TR! GLOUCESTER!

WE WERE
DRIVING ON HIGHWAY 75 IN RICHARDSON, TX ON 4/23/08 ABOUT 9PM ON A
STORMY NIGHT WITH A LOT OF LIGHTNING AND RAIN AND THE PASSENGER
SIDE AIR BAG AND PASSENGER SIDE CURTAIN AIRBAGS CAME OUT WITH A
VERY LOUD GUN SHOT LIKE SOUND BUT DID NOT FULLY INFLATE. MY WIFE
AND I WERE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT HAPPENED TO CAUSE THEM TO DO
THAT SO WE SLOWED DOWN AND PULLED OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE
HIGHWAY. WE THOUGHT WE HAD BEEN SHOT AT OR SOMETHING WAS
THROWN AT THE CAR BECAUSE WE WERE NOT HIT BY ANOTHER AUTO. I GOT
OUT AND LOOKED THE CAR OVER AND FOUND NO REASON FOR THE AIRBAGS
AND CURTAIN TO DO THAT. MY WIFE WAS THOROUGHLY SHAKEN AND IS STILL
"GUN SHY" SO TO SPEAK TODAY RIDING IN ANY VEHICLE. WE STARTED TO
GET BACK ON THE HIGHWAY AND A FEW CAR LENGTHS DOWN THE ROAD
REALIZED THAT WE ALSO HAD A FLAT ON THE FRONT RIGHT TIRE. HONDA
NHTSA Consumer Complaints as of October 18, 2015
SAYS WE RAN OVER SOMETHING THAT CAUSED THE AIRBAGS TO DEPLOY AND
THAT IT WAS AN INSURANCE ISSUE SINCE WE COINCIDENTALLY HAD A FLAT
AFTER THE AIRBAGS PARTIALLY DEPLOYED. WE OBVIOUSLY D!
ID RUN
OVER SOMETHING TO CUT THE TIRE BUT NO REASON TO MAKE THE AIRBAGS
PARTIALLY DEPLOY AND WE CERTAINLY NEVER EXPECTED SIDE IMPACT AIR
CURTAINS AND AIRBAGS TO DEPLOY EVEN IF WE RAN OVER SOMETHING. THE
HONDA SERVICEMAN SAID WHATEVER WE HIT RAISED THE BACK
FLOORBOARD 2 INCHES - WE THINK IN THAT CAR THAT LOW TO THE GROUND
THAT WE WOULD HAVE HEARD IT HIT AND/OR FELT IT HIT IF IT DID THAT MUCH
DAMAGE. WE HAVE HAD THE CAR SINCE LAST SEPTEMBER AND HAVE NOT
HAD ONE COMPLAINT AND THE OUTSIDE OF THE CAR IS JUST LIKE BRAND
NEW - NOT EVEN A SCRATCH ON IT. WE HAVE PICTURES OF THE CAR WITH
THE DEFECTED AIRBAGS AND CURTAIN SHOWN WITH AN "UNDAMAGED" BODY.
THE AIR CURTAIN YOU CAN TELL NEVER INFLATED - LOOKS LIKE NEW WITH
ALL THE WRINKLES AND FOLDS. IT NEVER HIT MY WIFE AT ALL. WE SURELY
THOUGHT HONDA WOULD HAVE STOOD BEHIND THEIR PRODUCTS BETTER
THAN THIS. *TR! FERRIS!

HONDA ACCORD WAS STOPPED IN TRAFFIC, IT WAS HIT IN THE REAR BY A CAR
MOVING AT A HIGH RATE OF SPEED. DAMAGE TO MY CAR WAS EXTENSIVE, AND
BOTH I AND THE DRIVER OF THE OTHER CAR WERE INJURED. I LOST
CONSCIOUSNESS AND SUFFERED A CONCUSSION. I AND THE OTHER DRIVER
WERE TRANSPORTED TO THE HOSPITAL BY AMBULANCE. IN MY CAR, THE
FRONT, SIDE AND CURTAIN AIR BAGS FAILED TO DEPLOY. THE SEAT BELT PRETENSIONERS PROBABLY DID NOT WORK BECAUSE I HIT MY HEAD ON THE

REPORTED THIS TO THE LOCAL HONDA DEALER WHERE MY CAR IS BEING

REPRESENTATIVE. MY INSURANCE COMPANY INSISTS THAT MY CAR IS
REPAIRABLE, BUT I HAVE LOST TOTAL CONFIDENCE IN THE SAFETY SYSTEMS
OF THIS CAR. *TR! !
