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.

In early April, 2015 I received notice of air bag recall. On April 8, 2015 I contacted lancaster Honda re having the part replaced. I was told within 2 weeks they would call me back. They didn't. about may, 2015 I called them back, they apologized and said the part hadn't come in, but should be in by the end of the month. On July 3,2015 I called american Honda. They also apologized, but stated they had been unable to obtain the part, but that it should be available by the end of July. It is now August 3rd, 2015 and I have not heard anything from anyone. In my area we've been having unusual humid and hot weather which is supposed to be the most dangerous for this particular defect. When is this going to be resolved?

NHTSA recall #14V-353 issued on 19-June-2014, within 30 days of that date my vehicle was taken to my local Honda dealer who routinely performs my scheduled maintenance, I was advised at that time that the part was on order. I've been waiting for over one year and no change in availability has occurred. On 15-July-2015 I received a letter from Honda automobile division in California that if american Honda or my dealer has failed to remedy the defect in my vehicle "within a reasonable period of time" (60 days after the date I first contacted the dealer for a repair appointment), I should then submit to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Considering Honda has continued to manufacture this vehicle and since there does not seem to be a shortage of airbags for "new" vehicles, I find it concerning that I and many other loyal consumers should be needlessly placed in jeopardy.

I own a 2004 Honda Pilot. I received the recall notice in Feb 2015 of the issue with the passenger side air bag. I called my local dealer, brown's arlington Honda, for repair. The dealer said the parts are back ordered, and would take 3-4 weeks to arrive, and said they would order the parts. I called today, 1 April 2015, 6 weeks later, and the parts have not arrived. The dealer says it will be another 3-4 weeks. It appears both Honda and brown's arlington Honda are purposefully dragging their feet on this recall repair.
