Around 8500 miles while drive 35 mph the car suddenly veered to the right hitting the curb causing $1200 plus damages to the wheel, etc. Around 12,250 miles while driving 45-50 mph the car suddenly veered to the right and ran off the road causing a broken back and $725 in damage to the wheel skirts. This happened 5/13/16. Subsequently this happened two more times around 40-45 mph but with no accidents as no cars were in the right lane. Reported to american Honda and the case was dismissed as they can't identify any problems. The steering wheel wobbles but not codes show up.

Takata this morning when I did start the car, there was a warning sign " check power steering system" and the steering wheel extremely difficult to turn. I did call the dealer and left the car to diagnose the problem. It is only 10 months and millage around 9000. Dealer told me some part needed to replace (harness) and will cost around $450. Is this manufactured problem " recall"

My daughter (17 years old) was driving at 35 miles in leona valley ca on last Friday 2015 her Honda Civic (7,000 miles on odometer). Her car low-pressure air light came on and then car started to swerve violently left to right. Within few minutes the car brakes stopped functioning (according to her, it felt she was pushing on air when she pressed the brake paddle) and then the steering wheel locked. The car ended up on its side and caught fire. It started a brush fire (25 acres) here in ca. When my daughter and her two friends tried to get out the door, the other door won┐T open. They had to jump out of the sun roof. The question I have is what caused the fire and why did the car's brakes and steering wheel locked" what do I need to do to find out what needs to happen in order to get to the bottom of root cause of the accident"

While traveling at slow speeds in city driving, the car tends to lurch forward. Concerned about takata airbag- before I bought vehicle asked if one was installed and/ or airbag manufacturer. Could not get an answer and was told to buy a 2015 "just to be safe". in light of the 2015 VW takata airbag that just ruptured I would like advice on what to do as I bought the car. It is hard to believe that takata would be allowed to continue putting airbags in without knowing the cause.
