Odyssey

  • 112,000 miles
On Friday, May 29, 2015, the airbags on our 2003 Honda Odyssey deployed without accident or apparent cause while driving approximately fifteen (15) miles per hour on a residential street. The physical impact of the side airbag's deployment caused bleeding, severe scrapes and contusions to my wife's (the driver's) left arm. Although very traumatic and painful, we consider this a very fortunate outcome given that this inadvertent deployment could have easily caused more severe injuries or even death had it occurred: (1) at a higher rate of speed or in crowded traffic conditions or (2) had the airbags deployed with excessive internal pressure causing their inflators to rupture. This vehicle is currently under two separate NHTSA recalls: (1)15V-045 (mfr campaign id JN6) (inadvertent deployment) (2)14V-351 (mfr campaign id JH0) (potential rupture) it is important to note that we had done everything within our power to avoid being harmed by the known defects in this vehicle by bringing it to our local Honda dealer on 6/9/14 and 11/18/14 for completion of earlier recalls, 13-088 and 14-040, respectively. Following the deployment, we received an offer from american Honda to repair the SRS system and to pay for a rental car, but we were disappointed that they insisted that we appear at the dealer to sign a complete waiver before making these repairs, that the offer to replace the SRS electronic control unit recalled under 15V-045 was to be done with a device still subject to recall and which has already proven inadequate to prevent injury and a complete denial of compensation for the injuries suffered by my wife and other damages. There should never have been a request to sign any waiver associated with completion of these repairs and ahm should rightfully have taken a stance that would have compensated us for all damages associated with this incident.
