Takata recall. My car is one of the cars for the takata airbag on the driver and passenger side. I was told that Honda only covers the rental cars for the driver side airbags and will not be covering if the driver side was fixed and the passenger has not been fixed. So I can still drive my car but Honda recommends not to have someone in the front passenger seat. This prevents me from driving/carpooling more than 3 passengers as well as the metal shards from the passenger airbag can still potentially hit the driver if the airbag deployed. Is Honda and other companies allowed to only cover the rental car for the driver side and not the passenger passing on the liability to the car owner if the passenger was to get hurt due to the recall?

Takata recall ithaca carshare is a small non-profit organization serving 1,400 community members with 25 vehicles available for self-serve reservations on a 24/7 basis. Six of these vehicles are Honda Fits affected by the takata recall. For the safety of our members and liability purposes, we removed these vehicles from service on April 4, 2016. We have spoken with both our local Honda dealer and Honda corporate multiple times, and thus far both have refused to provide any compensation for the loss of revenue caused by these vehicles being unsafe to drive. Each vehicle requires installation of specialty hardware for our use, so substitute vehicles provided by Honda (which have not been offered) are not an option for us. As each day goes by, we lose $250-300 in revenue, so as of this writing we have lost over $3,000. As a small non-profit, this recall has a huge effect on our budget. We expect that our losses will total at least $10,000, if not more. Failure of Honda to provide compensation for this loss is both inconvenient and unacceptable. We continue to seek compensation for this loss and request any assistance you may offer on our behalf.
