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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Takata recall we received a letter dated March of 2016 and Honda is telling us that the part for the passenger air bag won't be available until this fall and they have no idea when the part will be available for the driver air bag. They advised us to try and drive the car less! this is unacceptable. The parts should've been available immediately upon sending out a recall notice or what was the point of sending a notice in the first place?

This information regarding takata airbags has been under "discussion" since 2004. Here we are 2016 I receive a recall notice "in the event of rupture metal fragments...may cause serious injury or fatality to you or others in the vehicle" a call to my Honda service manager - no parts to repair this "defect" and they have not yet received notification from Honda as to when the parts may be available. I can leave my car in service for the time it takes Honda to repair my vehicle but this is not a practical or satisfactory solution. The onus falls on Honda Motors. This recall is reprehensible - a serious flaw which could result in death, but as yet no solution for Honda Fit drivers. Shame shame on you Honda Motors - but they have made it obvious they could care less about folks who buy Honda products because of their dependability. The satisfaction guarantee is a lie. This is not customer service or quality care that I expect from Honda. Please force then into action.

Takata recall Honda offers to provide a rental vehicle to the owners of the affected cars until it has the remedy parts to fix the driver's airbag sometime in summer 2016. However: 1) Honda does not provide insurance on that rental vehicle and expects the customers to pay for insurance. Insurance on rental vehicles is expensive ($30 a day or so). I believe pushing that expense to the customers is unacceptable. 2) Honda does not authorize a second driver on the rental it provides, which is not the way family cars are used. I believe this is also unacceptable. Thank you,

I am not sure how this notification from Honda regarding Honda Fit recall affects other folks who have received this mailing, but I find Honda's management of this defect in their cars reprehensible. Better I should have continued driving my car not knowing that "Honda has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists" and that "the defect in these vehicles could kill or injure you or other people in your vehicle." Uh better still "we apologize for any inconvenience (death, maiming or serious injury) this recall may cause you it really sucks for you the driver because these parts will not be available until the summer of 2016. I purchased a Honda because I expected better customer relations. It is ludicrous to recall vehicles, yet not have repair parts available until some nebulous time in the future. Shame on you, Honda Motors. Patricia wall

The car was being pulled out of the driveway onto the street, at about 5 mph, when both the driver's and passenger's side airbags deployed. The car did not hit anything, and shows no visible damage. A police report was filed, in which the officer stated that there was no apparent reason for the airbags to have deployed.

This is a follow up to my original complaint NHTSA id number: 10554185 now with this nationwide airbag recall I suspect my incident is related but am very concerned that after my complaint my vehicle does not appear on the recall list. Obviously since then I have repaired my vehicle but at my expense. After contacting this Agency, Honda headquarters in us and the Honda dealer at the time I got no help or guidance, and yet a year later there is this massive recall on airbags that took years and multiple stages and loss of life to come to light. At the time of my incident emergency response and police remarked that in all of their experience they had not witnessed the state of how and why my airbags deployed. Does this not raise a flag now? please help.
