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. Our 2006 Honda Civic has a problem with the airbags. The light indicating airbag failure lit up, so we took it to the dealer who said it needs to be replaced. The previous model years have been recalled, so we wonder why we have to pay for the replacement and why this model year was not recalled.

Was driving down a neighborhood street getting ready to turn, driver air bag, passenger curtain, and side seat air bags deployed, the seat belt is no longer in working order because of this...and here was no reason for these to deploy, no impact to anything whatsoever. Honda ask about pot holes and if we encountered one, nothing to the at effect either. I was hit in my chest and stomach, passenger was hit in arm and side of head from these. I am in my first trimester of pregnancy. Both myself, the firebrand passing went to dr. Honda Corp was called and notified, regional manager came to local Honda dealer to have car looked at. Honda rep insisted this would not just happen, but it did, as I was in vehicle and the driver. After having car inspected, they informed us they it was impact related. There were no damages, dents or anything to support this "theory". they refused to do anything to the car except want to charge me a fee for this service. The estimate given to take care of my vehicle was $6,500. Did I fail to mention that passenger front air bag did not deploy, despite the fact that it was a so called "impact". Honda has not done anything to make restitution in any way, closed our file and left us to take care of it. Refused to accept responsibility fro a Honda product.

The air bags in my vehicle did not deploy in a front and back end collision that I was involved in. It caused me to fly forward and injure myself, hitting the steering wheel in my chest and abdomen. My car was at halt at a traffic red light and a Ram 1500 van whose brakes failed to apply bumped into my car from behind, which caused my car to also collide with the car in front. This caused severe damage to my car, both in front and back and the air bag signs went on and the seat belt retracted but the air bags did not get deployed inspite of such severe impact.

I recently had my air bag light come on. Car was not in an accident. Took it to the dealer paid $115 for a SRS diagnostic. They said that the passenger seat weight sensor was faulty and was not receiving any signal. They recommended replacing the passenger outer and inner weight sensor at a whopping cost of nearly $900 this manufacturing safety failure is apparently not covered under warranty. They covered my failing paint job one year ago but fail to cover a safety issue that if in an accident will not deploy my passengers airbag and also wont lock the seat belt putting anybody in that seat at grave danger. Since the sensor is faulty and does not detect anyone sitting in the passenger seat. Other Civic owners seem to be having the same issue. How can one get the dealer to own up to its product and replace its faulty safety equipment in their vehicles. Smh

There is a malfunction in the air bag sensor that the dealership told me could cause the airbags to deploy at anytime or even not go off during an accident. But apparently the repair is not covered.

Honda part#: 77900-sna-A01 (methode) -or- 77900-sna-A02 (furukawa) reel assy, cable. With the failure of this part, vehicle cruise control, radio controls and SRS air bags failed.

The ribbon cable inside this mechanism was completely severed on the vehicle.

The airbag warning light in my 2006 Honda Civic ex has been illuminating intermittently for several months. It started by illuminating perhaps 5% of the times I was driving, but now it illuminates perhaps 50% of the time. I have been in no accidents. When I brought the car to Honda on 9-24 they could find nothing wrong. I brought it back again on 9-26 and they at first suspected a short in the wires, and said no hard codes were stored. After a more work Honda reported that the driver's side front airbag needed replacement. It seems to me that a passive element like this should not fail after only 8 to 9 years. Isn't this a defect?
