Takata recall manufacturer has failed to provide correct documentation on the remedy. The recall notice, updated on Jan 14, 2017, asserts that the remedy parts will become available in late summer/fall 2016, but the remedy is not yet available. Clearly this is false and must be corrected.

Takata recall-on May 24, 2016, on an unusual hot and humid day on the lower Maryland shore, I watched my 17 year old daughter pull into a parking space - sidewalk in front of the space. I watched the car come to a stop and within seconds I watched the car jump onto the sidewalk. As I walked over to the car I saw that the airbags had deployed. The side, curtain airbags. I opened the car door, the car full of dust, my daughter crying and badly bruised and had to be taken to the hospital. She does not know what happened, nor do I. as a result of that incident, the car was totaled. The payoff did not cover the amount of the financing and my insurance company dropped our good driver rate, flagged my daughter and increased my insurance by $100 a month. At the time I called Honda and explained what happened, I gave them the VIN number but was told there was no recall and what was I looking for. Now eight months later the truth has come out.

Takata recall. I'm afraid to drive my car. Honda promised to make it safe again more than 6-months ago and they still have not. In the meantime I can't even drive my car without extreme anxiety about my air bags killing me or my wife.

There maybe metal objects in the airbags and can harm or kill me the driver or second person in the car.

I received a letter from Honda in July 2016, stating that my passenger airbags were being recalled and the parts would be ready in late summer/early fall 2016. The letter stated that I should not allow anyone to sit in my passenger seat until the airbags were replaced as shrapnel could be dislodged in an accident. Ithe is now the end of December 2016 and I have still not heard back from Honda with a solution. I also don't feel that it is ethical to assume that should shrapnel fly from my airbags during an accident, no one else in the car not sitting in the passenger seat will be affected.

Takata recall I received a warning not to have a passenger sit in the front seat, but what about me, the driver? I have been driving in constant fear of getting hit by another car, causing the driver side air bag to inflate, and possibly dying or getting severely injured. I live in Hawaii with high humidity. It is almost the end of 2016 and I still have not received notice of bringing my car in.

Takata recall I received a notice in the mail at the end of July stating that I have a recall on my airbag and that it is unsafe to have someone in the passenger seat. I contacted my local Honda deal and put myself on the waiting list and was told it would take up to six weeks. I thought that was somewhat unreasonable since it's deemed unsafe to have anyone in the passenger seat until the repair is made. Six weeks came and went so I called my local Honda dealer and they told me that there was nothing they could do. It has now been three months. I understand they don't have the part, but it's completely unreasonable that this much time has gone by and it's not safe to have a passenger in the front seat.

Takata recall...all information from Honda suggested that this would be fixed later summer/early fall 2016. We have waited since summer to get this completed. We are unable to have any passengers in this for fear of injury to occupants. We refuse to wait any longer to have this vehicle we purchased sit idle and not risk the safety of our family.
