Takata recall my complaint is that we received the letter from Honda in July 2016 about the air bag recall. The letter advises us to avoid having a passenger sit in the front seat. That it's not yet repaired is just aggravating. For six months, we've had to avoid a front seat passenger, or feel guilty about them sitting there. This has curtailed our use of and enjoyment of our vehicle. The letter shifted responsibility from takata and Honda -- to us, the car owner. This is not right.

Takata recall: I was advised that it would possibly take longer than a 3 month wait until the repair kit even arrived at the facility due to the fact that they "don't make that vehicle any more" and was told to have my family of 4 ride in the rear seats for safety issue. It is a 4 seat vehicle. Have left message with service manager an no response. This time frame is unacceptable and if in an accident, according to the video on your website, could cause injury or death to my family.

The contact owns a 2011 Honda Element. The contact received notification of NHTSA campaign number: 16V344000 (air bags); however, the part to do the repair was unavailable. The contact stated that the manufacturer exceeded a reasonable amount of time for the recall repair. The manufacturer was made aware of the issue. The contact had not experienced a failure.

Takata recall: Replaced driver side airbag 2 yrs ago when news broke. Dealer would not replace passenger side as Honda America refused to pay for it. Now Honda issues recall on passenger side airbag, stating no one should sit in passenger seat until repair. Called dealer, Honda America has not stocked parts. So essentially they ignored danger two years ago, and by saying don't sit there, are trying to blame vehicle owners and duck lawsuits. And didn't stock enough parts? sounds like they want cars off the road, do not want to fix, and are putting people in danger.
