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.

Takata recall: We received the recall notice in March. Called service and told to call back in the summer. We called in early July and were told 1 bag would be a week or two and the other bag would be several months. Called back on 7.16 and we are now being told it will be at least another month. When a recall is executed, the parties involved should be prepared to service the vehicles immediately. There should be a plan.

Takata recall I was notified of the recall in the spring. I was told I would be contacted in may for the service. I was not contacted and when I called in June was told they still do not have the part. They told me they cannot disconnect the air bag per the law but this is ridiculous! knowing these bags kill, an exception should be made or the parts made available quickly. I am a small person and air bags frighten me to begin with but this is an incredible example of incompetence. Honda America is not answering the phone by the way. The safety risk is exceptionally high in this case and something should be done to rectify it now.

  • 96,000 miles
Takata recall: I was notified only in late spring 2015 of my 08 Honda CRV. I understand this has been going on for years. I wonder if the dealer in Santa Fe, nm knew about this when they sold me this used car in September 2015.....6 months before I got the recall notice. I notice a real problem in scottsdale, AZ need a comp vehicle with room for fold up bike (does not fit in typical trunk and I don't have carrier) and other things.. I will be shuttled to enterprise to settle for a sedan, not similar to my vehicle and have to pay for higher priced rental. Dealer said "they can't keep my car at lot until airbag is replaced and it will have to be stored at my home." I live in apartment complex, have 1 parking spot, and can't take off work to coordinate them delivering my car back to my home and then picking up again after repair, exchanging keys, ect. I don't have family/friends here who can help me with all this running around! why should they anyway? it's all really inconvenient while I continue to make payments on car I won't have use of. Other things I've been told: 1. "can't help you further, it's a holiday (only time I have off of work) but we can sell you a new car" 2. "we have no idea when the part will come in as it could be months and here's the Honda corporated number" I waited on hold 30 minutes to be disconnected and started all over again. 3. "we can request an upgrade on the loaner from Honda but it's not guaranteed" corporate said they are not approving upgrades. What's the real answer" 4. "we have to follow what Honda Corp tells us and have no way of checking when the airbag will be replaced." 5. "don't worry it's happening in humid climates life the South, not here". I believe Arizona has had some deaths over this!
