Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

I have been in and replaced my airbag sensors 3 times with the recall. After the 2nd or 3rd time I was in for the recall the lining of the roof of my car has completely fallen in and makes it impossible for me to see out the rear view mirror. I have included a picture of the roof of my car as it looks now. I should have video of the transition of events but I think my external hard drive has crashed completely. I have been in to Honda of concord in North Carolina where they have told me there was nothing they could do as far as repairing it for free and I would have to pay. Why has no one looked at a computer glitch as the culprit for the airbag sensors automatically releasing air? something has to trigger the sensor to start slowly releasing air, as I was told at Honda of South hill, Virginia where I originally had my sensors replaced for the recall.

Took my vehicle in for air bag recall, a few months later, the SRS light came on. Took vehicle back to same dealer that had replaced air bag and now I'm told that the SRS unit has gone bad and no safety features (air bags, seat belts) will work if I am in a crash. I can pay over $730 to fix this unit. Additionally, I am asked when my battery had died- which it hasn't died. However, the only time in the last few years when my battery was touched was when they disconnected it to replace the drivers recalled air bag. Then I'm told that this major safety component is not covered under any warranty from Honda and was in no way connected or effected by the air bag replacement they did a few months prior. I find this incredibly suspect and have noticed others posting the same complaint about replaced airbags and SRS unit replacements. So, even after this recall, I have a car that isn't safe and I feel that this new issue is a result of the earlier work with the airbag replacement. Please, please, please look into this relationship to see if recall replacement units or procedures are causing this SRS unit to malfunction. We're having to pay almost $1000 to fix this and I don't feel that we'd be in this predicament without some fault of Honda or the technicians at my local dealer.

Takata recall. Honda is not willing to recall the takata airbags and takata airbag inflators in my car, although Honda did recall the above parts on the closest vehicles, - Honda Accord coupe 2006 with a 4-cylinder engine. I need to know how and why my vehicle is considered safer than the other 2006 Accord. This was the explanation that I got when I called Honda customer service at 800 999-1009. She wasn't able to provide any additional details into the process, nor did she have another number for me to call.

We were driving our 2006 Honda Accord ex-L (4cyl) and the SRS light came on and we have previously (6 months before) had the airbags replace under the takata recall. We took the vehicle in immediately and found out that the airbag control module had failed and has to be replace at $650. I have never had an airbag control module fail and I am surprised that Honda is not covering this safety issue.

I was driving with my wife around 1230am 12/27/15 last night from a friends house to our home about a 5 mile drive when the driver's side airbag went off for no reason. The road I was on was a local road. I was driving normal and safely because it was late and very dark at the time. It exploded twice. I was sitting in the driver position. My wife in the front passenger seat felt a blast on her chest. The passenger air bag never went off. I felt a blast as well and luckily nothing hit my face. Smoke filled the cabin. We opened the windows and got out fast. I pulled over to the side of the road but it was pitch black where we were. We waited about 15 minutes before deciding we should try to drive home...since we were close to home, I drove home. I called my insurance company to put in a claim because I didn't know what else to do. I had previously went to my Honda dealership twice to get the airbags fixed. I went on May 7 2015 and October 13 2015. I wanted this noted in case. We were scared. I never expected this airbag to go off for no reason B/C I had gone in twice for recalls. No police report was filed B/C there was no accident. My insurance company progressive is supposed to call me on Monday for the next step.

Honda dealer replaced an airbag and now my airbag light keeps coming on. Dealer says I now have to replace my SRS system for $800. I have spoken with american Honda and they have distanced themselves from the dealer. I have spoken to the GM of tampa Honda, [xxx] and the service manager [xxx] and they both say one has nothing to do with the other. I feel that I am a victim of deceptive trade practice by tampa Honda. I advised them that I am currently at risk driving the car and they referred me to their attorney [xxx] and said there is nothing for them to do. I will have my attorney write them a letter of disclosure this week. I would appreciate any assistance from the NHTSA.

I received 2 recall notices from Honda in the past year and I contacted local Honda dealer. They said they don't have the parts for fixing my problem. They said they will let me know once they have the parts. After a couple of months I called again and they said they don't have the parts. They said I can file a complaint.

While waiting to have our airbag recall done the ssr light continued to go off and on. We thought it was due to the airbag recall on the vehicle. After the recall was done, the ssr light continue to stay on. The service department at Honda said it was the airbag sensor in the seat that needed to be replaced. It would cost $290 to fix this. I investigated online and found many issues with the airbag sensor that did have recalls on them. The 2006 Honda Accord was not listed for a recall for this issue but, found many customers with complaints with this same issue. On NHTSA reports they had a article stating Honda recalls $81,000 Accord over airbag sensor. They were recalling 2004-05 Accord sedans. They need to extend this to 2006 vehicles.

After a 3 month wait back in 2014, my driver side airbag was finally replaced on 1/12/15 by coral springs automall Honda's service department. A month ago I get another recall notice on the airbag and sort of skim over it thinking I just got it replaced. I was just double checking that all safety recalls had been done on the car when I realized that this last recall was for the passenger side air bag. The dealer ship only replaced the inflator on the driver side. I can only imagine how many people also are in the same boat not realizing Honda did not bother replacing both front side air bags and seeing this second notice that it was already fixed. There are many avenues to address this and would like to see the NHTSA make a news release addressing this very issue for all car owners - specifically that both airbags need to be replaced and that if you previously took your car in, dealerships did not bother to replace both.

The contact owns a 2006 Honda Accord. The contact stated that the VIN was included in NHTSA campaign numbers: 15V320000 (air bags) and 15V370000 (air bags). Before the recall repairs were completed, the vehicle was involved in a crash. While traveling approximately 25 mph, another vehicle crashed into the front passenger side of the contact's vehicle. None of the air bags deployed. The vehicle was taken to a repair shop, but there was no investigation to determine why the air bags did not deploy. The dealer was notified of the crash and was waiting for the approval from the manufacturer to complete the two air bag recall repairs. The driver was uninjured and a police report was filed. The failure mileage was not available.
