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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The vehicle has pending airbag recalls (NHTSA recall number: 14V-351 and 14V-349) for the takata-brand air bag inflators since the end of 2014. I have been able to have the passenger side airbags replaced, but, after multiple calls to the dealer, I continue to be told that the driver?S side parts are on national back order. I find this unbelievable, as the reasons for these recalls have been grievous injury and even death to drivers. The Honda dealership seems incredibly nonchalant about this issue. The inability to fix these life-threatening safety recalls by both Honda and takata should be looked into by the authorities. Thank you.

Honda issued a recall in 2014 but contact me only in January 2015 that the driver side air bag when deployed would propel parts and harm driver or passenger. Went into dealer ( airport marina Honda in los angeles ) to have recall part replaced but they do not have parts. Dealer said part is on backorder. Contacted Honda usa, the manufacturer and they tried to locate parts in their own inventory and other dealers in the area within 10 miles, to no avail. Why is the company issuing recall and not prepared to handle the need. God forbid if ever I or anyone in my family get into an accident, it could be fatal. This is a safety issue and Honda usa acts as if this is not urgent.

The vehicle has pending airbag recalls (NHTSA recall number: 14V-351 and 14V-349) for the takata-brand air bag inflators. I have repeatedly contacted the local Honda dealership and american Honda customer service about these recalls.however, I have been told by Honda repeatedly that they do not have the parts to complete the recalls for months. Honda's inability and unwillingness to fix safety recalls should be looked into by the authority. Thank you.

Sub: Honda CR-V 2002. Ref; outstanding recall recently, in year 2014, we bought used Honda CR-V 2002 from gwinnett place Nissan, duluth, ga and was trying to find any outstanding recalls for the vehicle. We contacted Honda motor company usa through phone and fax line for recall (claim no: [xxx]) they informed me, they have no any record or any information for particular vehicle as per their representative acknowledgement. They also informed us that we have to find any recall by ourselves. Now, we don't know how to handle this kind of problem. Our and other people's safety is very important for us. Manufacture is not willing to give any co-operation for the recall or guide us what we can do to solve this matter. Please guide us, what kind of an action or process to handle these problems. Thank you for your time and consideration C.C.to:Honda motor company usa
