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.

Had the recalls done and now the SRS light will not go out. Have tried the reset and hooked up my code reader - code reader has no indication of a problem. Reset did not work. Concerned about safety and also do not want to take it to a dealer for a $100+ diagnostic if it is Honda's fault. Seems a lot of owners are having this problem. Car starts and runs fine but the SRS light remains on. Is there a warrentee with the safety systems.

I have been waiting for Honda to replace my driver's airbag. I contacted my local Honda dealership over three months ago to schedule a time for the passenger airbag to be replaced. They've never called me back. When I call them, they tell me the part is on back order. The dealership is: Madison Honda, 280 main St, madison, NJ 07940. I would like my vehicle serviced as soon as possible.

I had the Honda airbag recall done on 8/3/2015. While driving the car on 8/6/2015, the SRS system off indicator light came on and then went off. This light was not a problem before the recall was done but now has us wondering what is the status of our restraint system.

I was contacted by my local Honda dealership notifying me of a recall on both my drivers and passengers side airbags. The Honda dealership said that they had the airbags on order and would contact me when they were in. I have been contacted by Honda a couple of times since them, only to hear that they do not have the parts yet. I received a letter today, July 17, 2015 from the automobile division of Honda stating once again that my car's airbags are being recalled. I was pointed to this page due to the fact that it has been over 6 months since I was first contacted by my local dealership and they have yet to be able to deliver the service of servicing my airbags!

CR-V

The SRS light on my instrument panel recently activated which I figured was a result of the recent air bag recall and would be rectified when the dealer replaced the air bag parts as part of the recall. Unfortunately, after having both passenger and driver air bag recall work completed on 6/30/15, the SRS light remains lit. Cost of repair was estimated by dealer at $850 and apparently not covered by Honda as part of the recall(!) even though I was told the SRS system controls both the air bag and seat belt tensioning systems. Not sure how these units would wear out other than by internal failure since the air bags fortunately haven't ever been deployed- sure seems like it should be a no brainer recall item given the potential life safety danger the failure of this system poses.
