I was driving my 2007 Honda Accord and a piece of debris was in the road. Something hit the bottom of my car and caused the air bags to deploy on the passenger side front and back and also seat airbag. The airbags never inflated, just dropped down like a curtain and all the wrinkles are still in there.

I just bought a used Honda Accord 2007 and while driving it back home the SRS driver airbag light went on and has been on and stays on from now on when I start the engine it goes of and then comes on and stays on, this is a safety matter of concern for me as if I get into an accident the airbags won't deploy and I really cant afford to get this fixed as I have read that Honda charges 800 dollars to fix it. Please do something about it. Thanks.

I was driving down 95N interstate highway in my 2007 Honda Accord when all of a sudden my side airbag curtain deployed on the passenger side. At the time I thought that I was in the middle of a car crash or something flew off of a truck that smashed into my side windows but when I turned to see, all I saw was my side airbag curtain hanging down. The sound alone scared me half to death it was the loudest popping sound I have ever heard! I somehow made my way to the breakdown lane to calm my nervous an try to figure out what happened. When I had the chance to get out an look @ my car I noticed there was no sign of impact (no dents, etc.) I called the dealership that I purchased my car from and explained what happened an they said they have never heard of such a thing happening an if I had replaced anything on my car.. it's a bran new car 1 1/2 yrs old, other than oil changes nothing has been replaced. Thank god no one was in my passenger side seat which doesn't explain why the airbags were on in the 1st place. And thank god I didn't crash due to the horrifying sound and being scared to death! my ears were ringing for a good hour after it deployed. Honda stated that I must have ran something over. They put my car on a lift an said there was a hole on the floor of my car which would have triggered the sensor which then set the airbag off. I know I didn't run anything over... I was just driving down the interstate. They then said that the slightest impact would set the sensor's off. So now my car is in a shop after having no car for 2wks. And I'm paying over a $1000 to get it repaired. Honda has not been helpful in this whole ordeal. Pretty much what I got out of what they said is that anytime that I run over any debris in the road that I now have to worry about my sensor's setting my airbags off. If their sensor's are so sensitive then this can be an ongoing issue and if it happens to someone else the outcome could be alot worse....

Multiple electrical difficulties vehicle has been at the dealership on 2 separate occasions due to sporadic working of the power door locks and keyless entry system. They still have not found the issue. It is worse when it is humid and/or rains. During the winter months of 2007/2008; the stereo's lcd went warped and the whole stereo had to be replaced. On memorial day 2008; the drivers side seat caught fire while I was sitting in it parked waiting on my children to come out of a theme park. My husband burned his hand trying to put out the fire; and was out of work for about 2-weeks due to the burn. The dealership and Honda refused to take responsibility for this fire; which started inside the seat due to the electronic seats and/or heated leather seats, as determined by the insurance company appraiser. The seat had to be replaced, the electronic seat components, heated leather seat components, part of the center console, and the carpeting and floor mats. We got the car back on July 3. on Monday, July 7; my husband took the car to have it inspected (at the dealership); since the state inspection was past due. They rejected the inspection stating that the electronic system is not recognizing the seat belts. They later changed their tune when I called them and are now trying to say it wasn't that it was the airbag wasn't hooked up; and they could fix it. I know they are lying, and they are trying to cover their tracks as this I am sure is just another electrical issue in my car. I am at my wits end on what to do with this car. I can't afford to trade it in, I have spent over $1000 on rental cars waiting for it to be repaired, and now this. Also, the power door locks still do not work.

Accord 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,000 miles
While my 2007 Honda Accord was stopped in traffic, it was hit in the rear by a car moving at a high rate of speed. Damage to my car was extensive, and both I and the driver of the other car were injured. I lost consciousness and suffered a concussion. I and the other driver were transported to the hospital by ambulance. In my car, the front, side and curtain air bags failed to deploy. The seat belt pre-tensioners probably did not work because I hit my head on the steering wheel with sufficient force to lose consciousness. I reported this to the local Honda dealer where my car is being repaired, and I requested that the dealer inform the Honda zone representative. My insurance company insists that my car is repairable, but I have lost total confidence in the safety systems of this car.
