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.

I received recall notification (14V-351) dated September 2014 for air bag lamp and it states " affected airbag deploys, the increased internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture". it also states that I should call any authorized Honda dealer and make an appointment to have my vehicle's driver's front airbag inflator replaced, at no cost to me. I have notified tony Honda located on ka uka, Hawaii four times. The first representative I spoke to said that they will charge me if the air bag lamp that is on in my vehicle doesn't match the description of the recall. I then asked for an appointment, and they said that someone will contact me. After over a week I haven't received a call, I left messages regarding status of my vehicle and would like to take of it asap, especially if it's a recall!. I have not received any call backs regarding appointment. Over four attempts, and received no support from tony Honda. I've been driving my vehicle to and from work everyday with my spouse and children hoping that it's just an electronic issue! there's not a day that goes by that I think of "what happens if it's not an electronic issue, and it deploys". if you can help me by providing support to take care of this problem, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time and hope to hear from you soon. Staff sergeant [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

I first noticed the problem with the head lights dim from regular brightness to really low while driving. Then I noticed the lights inside the car doing the same dim while the engine is off. And today, on my dashboard I noticed the SRS indicator light turned on red, and stays on red as I drive it. Everything is original on the vehicle, no after market. Vehicle has never been in an accident and no repairs have been made, minor or major.

I took my car into the Honda dealer in hollywood Florida by appointment and was told that I had to leave my car with them indefinitely for no more than 30 days because they did not have enough "bags" to make the recall repair. This creates a hardship for me because I need my car for work, grocery shopping and emergencies should one occur. I complied by making an appointment, waiting until that day under risk of accident because of the defective airbag, and showing up on time. The Honda rep. Did not acknowledge my appointment and informed me that I can leave the car or refuse to leave it. I am currently stranded without a car with no idea when I would get my car back and I was not given a receipt or document stating that I had left my car at the dealership. Only a business card from the representative who took possession of my car. I feel this interrupts my ability to survive and puts me in danger should an emergency occur and I need to get to a hospital. It is not my error and I should not be forced into this precarious position by threat of voiding Honda's responsibility to correct this fault in the car by refusing to leave it at the Honda shop for up to 30 days. The repair should be done immediately or a rental should be provided at Honda's cost.
