HONDA ACCORD 2007 Air Bags TUESDAY, JANUARY 26TH,
2016, APPROX.9:45PM, MY WIFE AND I WERE TRAVELING HOME FROM NEW
JERSEY BACK TO NEW YORK THROUGH HIGHLY POPULATED TRAFFIC AND
PEDESTRIAN ZONES. OUR 2007 HONDA ACCORD 4CYL, SEDAN WITH 59,700
MILES CAME TO A STOP WHILE TRAVELING APPROX 20MPH AS WE PASSED AN
INTERSECTION DUE TO DRIVER SIDE CURTAIN AND SEAT DEPLOYING WITHOUT
CAUSE. NO OTHER VEHICLE/PEDESTRIAN WAS INVOLVED, FORTUNATELY,
AND NO DAMAGE WAS DONE TO OUR VEHICLE. HOWEVER THE AIRBAGS
STRICTLY ON THE DRIVER SIDE, THAT ARE NOT PART OF A RECALL,
DEPLOYED/MALFUNCTIONED THUS POTENTIALLY MAY HAVE CAUSED A
SERIOUS OR FATAL ACCIDENT HAD ANOTHER VEHICLE OR PEDESTRIAN BEEN
NEARBY. LOCAL DEALER, PARAGON IN WOODSIDE, APPRAISED DAMAGE AND
COST OF REPAIR AT $6,000.00 PARTS AND LABOR. THE SERVICE ENGINEER
CONCLUDED ANY DIPS IN ROADS, POTHOLES, HILLS, BASICALLY LANDSCAPES
THAT DIRECT/FORCE THE FRONT OF A VEHICLE FORWARD COULD
POTENTIALLY SET OFF THE SENSOR FOR AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT. CONTRARY
TO THEIR 'PROFESSIONAL' STATEMENT OUR VEHICLE DID NOT SEE S
UCH
A SCENARIO WHERE ONLY DRIVER SIDE OF VEHICLE WOULD REQUIRE
AIRBAGS BEING DEPLOYED. SHOULD THE ROAD CONDITIONS BEEN SEVERVE
ALL AIRBAGS SHOULD OF DEPLOYED. HAVING SAID THAT THIS SHOULD NOT BE
THE CASE. SHOULD THEIR STATEMENT BE "TRUE" CONSEQUENTLY AIRBAGS
WOULD BE GOING OFF WITH NO ACCIDENTS MORE OFTEN, AND THIS WOULD
BE A REGULAR REPAIR AND PUTTING A GREATER POPULATION AT RISK. WE
BELIEVE THE DRIVER SIDE MALFUNCTIONED AND WE CANNOT BE HELD
REPONSIBLE WHEN THIS SAFETY FEATURE IS OUT OF OUR CONTROL. WE
CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH THAT THERE WAS NO ACCIDENT. VEHICLE WAS
MOVING IN A STRAIGHT LINE 20MPH GOING THROUGH A GREEN LIGHT, ON A
MODEST INCLINE DOWNHILL AT BEST. BEAR IN MIND I'VE DRIVEN THROUGH
THAT INTERSECTION ON A REGULAR BASIS AND THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED
BEFORE. I WOULD HAPPILY RE DEMONSTRATE. THE AIRBAGS THAT DEPLOYED
ARE NOT PART OF A RECALL

HONDA ACCORD 2007 Air Bags MY HONDA ACCORD HAD A
RECALL FOR BOTH DRIVERS SIDE AND PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAGS. I CALLED
THE HONDA DEALER CLOSEST TO ME TO SET UP AND APPT. TO GET THEM
REPLACED. TOOK MY CAR INTO THE RYAN HONDA DEALERSHIP AND THEY
PERFORMED THE WORK IN A COUPLE OF HOURS. WHEN I LEFT THE
DEALERSHIP, WHICH WAS AT THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT CLOSING TIME, I
NOTICED MY SEATBELT/AIRBAG LIGHT WAS ON, AND WOULD NEVER GO OFF
(THIS LIGHT WAS NOT ON BEFORE I HAD THE PARTS REPLACED). I CALLED THE
DEALERSHIP TO EXPLAIN TO THEM THAT THE LIGHT CAME ON AFTER THE
AIRBAGS WERE REPLACED AND WILL NOT GO OFF. THEY TOLD ME THAT MY
SEATBELT SENSOR WAS OUT AND THAT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE
AIRBAGS! WELL, MY SEATBELT SENSOR WAS NOT OUT BEFORE THEY DID THE
WORK ON MY CAR. NOW, I'M LEARY THAT THE AIRBAGS WERE NOT INSTALLED
PROPERLY OR SOMETHING BECAUSE OF THE LIGHT BEING CONSTANTLY ON. I
DO APPRECIATE HONDA SENDING THE AIRBAG RECALL AND FOOTING THE
BILL, BUT DON'T THINK IT'S FAIR TO GO INTO THE DEALERSHIP AND
SOMETHING ELSE GETS MESSED UP AND I HAVE TO P AY TO GET IT REPAIRED
AT MY EXPENSE. CHOUDRANT

HONDA ACCORD 2007 Air Bags THE 2007 HONDA ACCORD
ALSO LISTED AS "VEHICLE" WAS TRAVELING SOUTH BOUND ON ANSON RD
NEAR 50TH ST, NEAR WELLINGTON, KS. VEHICLE STRUCK MID-CENTER OF A
EXTENDED SUV THAT PULLED OUT FROM A FARM ACCESS ROAD. VEHICLE
WAS TRAVELING AT APPROXIMATELY 55MPH, WITH CRUISE CONTROL SET.
DRIVER APPLIED BREAKS TO TRY TO STOP, BUT FAILED TO STOP IN TIME TO
AVOID COLLISION. VEHICLE FAILED TO DEPLOY AIRBAGS. SAFETY RESTRAINT
DID NOT FAIL AT TIME OF IMPACT, BUT FAILED TO RESEND ONCE UNHOOKED
FROM DRIVER. IMPACT BY VEHICLE WAS PRIMARILY MID-CENTER, AND
VEHICLE WAS TRAVELING WELL ABOVE THE 30MPH AT TIME OF IMPACT WHICH
SHOULD HAVE RELEASED THE SAFETY DEVICES TO PROTECT THE DRIVER.

HONDA ACCORD 2007 Air Bags 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.
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.

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

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

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

DECIDED TO MAKE A COMPLAINT BECAUSE I DO NOT WANT TO SUFFER ANY

I GOT A LETTER IN THE MAIL FOR A RECALL FOR MY 2007 HONDA ACCORD
REGARDING MY DRIVER'S SIDE AIR BAG. I TRIED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT
AND THEY SAID THEY CAN FIT ME IN UNTIL NOVEMBER 15TH. THIS IS HONDA'S
FAULT, SO WHY CAN'T THEY FIT ME IN SOONER. WHAT HAPPENS IF I GET A CAR
ACCIDENT AND MY AIR BAG DOESN'T WORK ACCORDINGLY? IS THERE
SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN DO FOR ME? MY HONDA DEALERSHIP IS IN LAKE
WORTH, FLORIDA.

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 BACK AND FORTH WITH
HONDA, IT WAS CLEAR THAT THE ONLY OPTION WE HAD TO GET OUR VEHICLE
FUNCTIONING AGAIN WAS TO FILE AN INSURANCE CLAIM, WHICH WE DID,

SOUND ALONE SCARED ME HALF TO DEATH IT WAS THE LOUDEST
NHTSA Consumer Complaints as of February 13, 2016
POPPING SOUND I HAVE EVER HEARD! I SOMEHOW MADE MY WAY 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
DEALERSHIP THAT I PURCHASED MY CAR FROM AND EXPLAINED WHAT
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
CAR 1 1/2 YRS OLD, OTHER THAN OIL CHANGES NOTHING HAS BEEN
REPLACED. THANK GOD NO ONE WAS IN MY PASSENGER SIDE SEAT WHICH
DOESN'T EXPLAIN WHY THE AIRBAGS WERE ON IN THE 1ST PLA
CE. AND
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
OFF. I KNOW I DIDN'T RUN ANYTHING OVER... I WAS JUST DRIVING DOWN THE
INTERSTATE. THEY THEN SAID THAT THE SLIGHTEST IMPACT WOULD SET THE
SENSOR'S OFF. SO NOW MY CAR IS IN A SHOP AFTER HAVING NO CAR FOR
2WKS. AND I'M PAYING OVER A $1000 TO GET IT REPAIRED. HONDA HAS NOT
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

HONDA ACCORD 2007 Air Bags I AM CONCERNED THAT
10261609
Failure Date: 01/19/2009
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
NHTSA Consumer Complaints as of February 13, 2016
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

HONDA ACCORD 2007 Air Bags 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 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
NHTSA Consumer Complaints as of February 13, 2016
ON WHAT TO DO WITH THIS CAR. I CAN'T AFFORD TO TRADE IT IN, I HAVE

HONDA ACCORD 2007 Air Bags 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 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
NHTSA Consumer Complaints as of February 13, 2016
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

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
STEERING WHEEL WITH SUFFICIENT FORCE TO LOSE CONSCIOUSNESS. I
REPORTED THIS TO THE LOCAL HONDA DEALER WHERE MY CAR IS BEING
REPAIRED, AND I REQUESTED THAT THE DEALER INFORM THE HONDA ZONE
REPRESENTATIVE. MY INSURANCE COMPANY INSISTS THAT MY CAR IS
REPAIRABLE, BUT I HAVE LOST TOTAL CONFIDENCE IN THE SAFETY SYSTEMS
