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.

The SRS light comes on indiscriminately. Concerned about the air bag and safety relating to it. It could happen driving or while its stationary. Secondly the yellow check engine light is constantly on. Fuel system leak according to a tech. He said it wasn't worth fixing. Thirdly, the door lights and rear courtesy brake light comes on occasionally, but then goes off.

Takata recall. We received a safety recall notice from Honda in June 2016 regarding a problem with our passenger frontal airbag inflator. The notice said Honda would replace the airbag inflator free of charge. The NHTSA recall number is 16V-344. Beginning on July 7, 2016, I tried several times to call my local Honda dealer (ourisman Honda in bethesda, md) to schedule an appointment for the replacement. However, they have refused to call me back to schedule an appointment. I called american Honda's customer service number to file a complaint and no one called me back. Both american Honda and their dealer (ourisman Honda) have failed to remedy this defect within 60 days of the date that I first contacted the dealer for a repair appointment (July 7, 2016).

This is about trying to get our recall fixed at hennessy Honda in woodstock ga. They are not fixing the recall unless it's within 10-3 M-F and this is the only place within 40 minutes. Here what happened: I recently received a recall notice about my airbags. I live in Cherokee Georgia and just called my local dealer who I've had great experiences with with previous recalls and getting it fixed on the weekend. When I called this time they told us that they couldn't look up the recall on their computer and that they don't do recalls on the weekend. After we explained our working schedule isn't condusive for any weekdays and that they fixed it last time. He said there is absolutely no way to fix the recall on the weekend and if they we don't like it go somewhere else. I've never had anyone tell anyone that "many people have jobs and kids and if you can't get here then that's your bad parenting." All we want to do is get a recall for a defective product, not call someone and be insulted.

I've been a loyal Honda customer for 20 years but will never purchase a vehicle again from hennessey Honda. We received a recall saying my airbags can arbitrarily deploy. With 2 little children, this is disturbing to me. I call Saturday morning right after I get notice (hennessey Honda) I'm told to call Monday through Friday and no one can help me on the weekend. I state that I work and that is difficult to do and don't they a service center open on the weekends to fix it and she said no. I reiterate that someone needs to inform me if the replacement part is available and there's a defective potentially harmful airbag in my car. That's when things take a turn for the worse. Ed miller gets on the phone from the service center and says they refuse to fix it on the weekend. I state I work and have 2 small children in which I'm concerned about their safety and that my job is not flexible and I can't take off, can't they please fix it on the weekend.  we are about to take a long trip too!  he rudely and condensendingly says a lot of our clients have kids and jobs and are still able to do it during the week, if you can't then to find another delarship (the next is over an hour away) I say in tears at this point, can I please speak to your manager.  he proceeds to lie and say have absoultely no manager.  I question the validity of that and he reiterates they have no service manager and no dealership manager. I've honestly never been treated so bad by someone in my entire life.  I don't even know what to say, I'm honestly in shock, I don't know what's wrong with this guy but that was the meanest I've ever been treated. We brought a brand new SUV from this dealership a year ago and always use them for service. To talk to anyone like that is so awful. They are refusing to fix it during hours I'm not at work, doesnt that violate some safety laws"???"

I received a second recall notice from Honda last March stating that the second part for airbag recall would be ready in summer 2015. I called a dealer a few times to see the part was available. They said that it was not available. It is almost a year since honday notified me of the recall. I cannot believe why the part is not available by now.
