1-takata inflator the passage airbag light comes on and off randomly. This does not make me feel comfortable. There's a recall for Cr-vs up to 2012 for this?? 2-start up noise - at least once a day when I start up my CR-V it does this very loud grinding sound. Note: During winter it was every time I started the car. The noise did not start until after the warranty expired. Took to dealership they stated its the valve that's a part of the head/timing chain system. I've done my research and both these problems are very common with Honda CR-V.

The passenger" air bag is off" icon is on all the time in the upper right hand corner of the dash. Stays on even if car if not turned on. Only have 25,000 miles on the car and there isn't anyone sitting in the passenger seat. Does not go off if someone is sitting in the passenger seat. Is this a problem related to the massive airbag recall?

On 11/30/15 our 2013 Honda CRV was taken to fox Honda in grand rapids, mi to have the driver air bag and power lock recall repairs performed. On 12/15/15 my daughter was traveling at approximately 50 mph when the truck in front of her slammed on it's breaks but the trailer lights were not working so the CRV squarely impacted the rear of the trailer with significant force. The passenger airbag deployed but the driver airbag did not. The radiator, engine and frame were damaged so the car was totaled. We filed complaint #04347205 with Honda explaining that the insurance adjuster and the body shop workers both believed that the air bag should have deployed. After my 3rd call, the Honda representatives were still trying to tell me that there are separate sensors and there are many reasons why one air bag could go off and not the other. I explained that while my daughter was not badly injured, I am concerned that there could be a bigger problem with their air bags and I wished they would take it seriously enough to inspect the car to make sure someone else isn't injured or even killed if there is a general defect.

On 2/10/2014, around 8:50 am est I was alone and driving to the office when my car skidded and I lost control. Due to the momentum the car had gained, it went into a free spin. Though this car is equipped with AWD and ABS, it still could not correct the skid and went out of control. It dashed against a tree on the pathway from the passenger side. This impact resulted in driver side air bags to deploy, however it exploded instead of inflating. This incident has resulted in injuries to my hand, neck and back. Recently I have heard recalls from Honda related to faulty air bags, however did not find any open recalls for my vehicle...updated 02/25/15

I was involved in an accident in philadelphia, pa on January 18, 2015 due to ice on highways. I slid into one car and got hit by another car. My car is currently in a repair shop. I received a call that the car can be fixed, however I need to know how safe is the car since I received so much damage to the car and the air bags never deployed.

Air bag tore during deployment and deflated very fast also caused cuts on my left arm and burns on my right hand fingers. I was wearing my seat belt also which held me in place. I do have pictures of the air bag. I might note that side air bag did not deploy.
