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. It has been 9 months since the recall. Honda has not sufficiently provided a solution to the issue. Their recommendation of having the front passenger seat for such a long period of time is not only unrealistic, it is also inconvenient and ultimately, unacceptable.

Takata recall. I received a recall notice rfom Honda of America in March 2016 warning of the takata problem. They stated that replacement parts would be available in the summer of 2016 and that I would receive a further notice when they were available. I have not yet received that letter. So I called Honda of America and they could not tell me if parts were available. They passed the buck by telling me to call my dealer. I did so and found that parts were available. So I have scheduled the replacement. My complaint is the lack of responsiveness on the part of Honda and my dealer. Either one should have contacted me when parts became available. Why is Honda motor still allowed to do business in the usa. They are either inept or crooked!

Takata recall. Received recall notice, saying that I would be notified when dealer had the replacement parts with an expected date of summer 2016. I emailed the dealership, but have yet to hear from them. The car is currently parked in garage. I don't want to sell or trade until the car is safe to drive, but this has gone on for a very long time. I just checked the Honda website. Their completion rate is less than 50%, yet they are seemingly very happy with that rate! that's outrageous!

Takata recall I received my first notice of the recall in March and another in July. The local dealer has yet to have the parts for replacement and just keeps telling me to call at the end of the month every month since March. This is extremely annoying to have limited use of my passenger seat and have no concrete date for a repair.

Takata recall dealer says it is not receiving parts from Honda for this problem. Is there any way to urge Honda to move faster. I suspect the car may wear out before the dealer receives part to effect replacement.

Takata recall, I have two car seats for my son and daughter in the back seat of the car which makes it impossible for us to follow Honda's suggestion to not allow passengers in the front passenger seat. Honda has stated that they are not providing rental vehicles. I've contacted Honda about this issue and been given a case #. however, it has now been 4 weeks since my initial request for a rental car waiver from Honda and no one has responded to my claim. Upon calling Honda on the 11th of August, I was told that no one at their customer service center could access case files. So, now I can't even get an update on the progress.
