Takata recall I received a letter from Honda regarding this recall in March of 2016. I consider myself a reasonable man but its been more than 5 months and still no parts available. The letter states the parts will be available in the summer of 2016. My dealer has been less than helpful. Honda corporate has been even less helpful. I am making payments and paying insurance on a vehicle I can't drive. Now the vehicle won't start without a jump and the battery doesn't hold a charge. This recall is a huge financial drain on my family, not to mention an inconvenience and no one seems to care. I have a case number from Honda. It took 44 days to finally get [xxx] my case manager on the phone and she hung up on me. It would be nice if Honda would compensate the owners of its vehicles for this. But that seems highly unlikely based on how I have been treated thus far. If you can do anything to expedite the completion of the recall I would sincerely appreciate it.

I purchased my car from fletcher jones 1100 N clark St, Chicago, il 60610 in mid January 2016. The recall was made in early February 2016. I was never notified by fletcher jones nor Honda in no way or form. I found out by fletcher jones in June 2016 when I went in for an oil change. If I would have gone for an oil change elsewhere I would have never known. They said they had yet to receive the part and they would notify me when it arrived. I called fletcher jones today 8/10/16 and they still have not received the part. I am concerned and upset with the lack of communication and the delay in obtaining the part.

Note: This is the second frontal based crash listed on this site for a Honda 2011 crz perhaps the driver that was involved with the previous crash did not realize the brakes failed. At approximately 17:17 I noticed the vehicle in front of me was stopped in traffic I tried to apply my brakes and pushed the brakes and the car did not slow for at least 1 1/2 car length. In a panic I tried to press harder with but nothing happened the car never slowed. The crashed into the vehicle in front of me with the full force of forty-forty five mph and totally collapsed the engine into the drivers cab both of my knees were bleeding and swollen from the impact of the engine being in the drivers compartment. The police officer told someone that helped me out of the car it looked like I never pushed the brake pedal. How can I Honda charge a premium with results like this and expect people to come back. It is worse feeling in the world to realize you do not have any brakes and your safety equipment you paid a premium for fails to work. Honda has lost a customer for life and I should have listened to the Accord owners complaining about the recurring brake repairs.the air bag did not deploy until the vehicle was fully stopped and I hit my head on the drivers side window. Consumer reports was right this car doesn't deserve to be rated!

****revision to previous complaint**** I was recently involved in a frontal collision in this vehicle. I am fine, however, the seat belt did not hold me to the seat properly. As the impact happened the seat belt locked and held me midway, from the back of the seat to the steering wheel, and did not 'pretension' me properly (pull me back and hold me sung to the seat. Because of this, while the seat belt was holding me midway, the air bag came out at full force and the center of the airbag impacted me in the middle of my chest, more specifically my sternum. If I was going to come into contact with the airbag it should have been after the airbag was fully deployed, instead, the airbag deployed and impacted my chest.
