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.

Takata recall - please see the attached letter which explains my predicament related to the announcement of the takata recall for 2011 Cr-vs. Today, Honda corporate's response to my plea was to dismiss me with no reasonable remedy. They are not willing to help me trade in my 2011 for a 2012 so that I replace my business delivery. At this point a rental is not even an option - neither hertz nor enterprise (verified by scott jordan - gfm of greenwich Honda 203 622 0612) will rent a car to be driven by young delivery drivers. So I am stuck with a 2011 car I cannot use and no way to replace it unless I buy another car out of my own pocket! this seems that the entities that created this awful situation are not willing to make amends. What other recourse do I have" can you help me"

Honda describes airbag to be unsafe...could kill or injure driver...a loaner CR-V will be provided, however I would have to pay $250 unpon return of the car for "detail" cleaning. This is because I Transport a therapy dog (through therapy dogs international) to facilities in the back of the car. If I opt to take a risk and continue driving the car, my car will be one of the last to be repaired, as all individuals with leased cars will be given a priority. I feel this is unfair, as I was not responsible for the defect in the airbags.

As instructed in the recall letter I received, I called my local dealer. I spoke to sam in the service department. I explained my concern about the air bag recall letter and told him that I was fearful of driving my car as the letter stated that I could die if the air bags deployed. He assured me that I would receive a call back today. I did not receive a call. When I attempted to call again they were closed. I am very concerned about driving my car and would like to know what my next step is.

This vehicle does not appear to be on the recall list, however the owner's literature indicates it has takata airbags. Are the dealer's required to replace the airbags even if they are not on the recall list?

Side curtain airbag indicator light "on" for no apparent reason. Turned off the next day, but turned "on" again the following day and has remained on since this day. I am at a lost for the reason and can only attribute it to hot weather.

There is an "air bag" warning light on in this vehicle. When hooked up to computer it reads "air bag inflater" problem. Older models of Honda's have had recall notices for this problem. I called billion Honda in Iowa city, ia and they responded "no recall" on this vehicle and "not covered under warranty" and were rude on the phone. Warrant states 15 years or 150K mile warranty on "safety restraints". with past history and warranty coverage I would think they would correct this problem before the liability becomes greater.

We pulled our Honda CRV 2011 into a parking lot at bonefish grill in canton Ohio on November 30, 2014. My mother was pulling into a parking spot and the accelerator moved to the floor and the car could not be stopped by slamming on the brakes. We ended up running into a car parked in front of us then a car to the left of us and then the car was finally stopped when we ran into the side of another car parked in the lot where it finally came to rest. The air bags did not deploy, and we were not injured. We were very scared and there was substantial damage to the 3 other cars as well as our own. We have read online the stories of others that had very similar situations with this particular make and model vehicle. We do not plan on ever getting in this vehicle again and will not trust any vehicle that Honda builds as well. This incident luckily happened in a parking lot. If we would have been in an intersection we or someone else would likely have been killed. This vehicle needs to be recalled and customers should be compensated for the negligence on the part of the company. It looks like from the stories that we have read that Honda is claiming no responsibility for this issue and blaming it on driver error. This is not acceptable and Honda needs to own up to their incompetence and dishonesty.
