  • 50,000 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Honda Fit. The contact stated that there was water leaking into the vehicle causing damage to the airbags. The contact mentioned that the airbag warning light illuminated. In addition, the contact stated that the tread on the tires separated. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the front drivers side door failed allowing water to enter and that the wheel was steel and not standard for warm climate. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 50,000 and the current mileage was 71,000.

Have had two blowouts on the same wheel (rear passenger) with different tire brands in less than three years of owning the car (blowouts were 16 months apart, maybe 8K miles). The Honda Fit is not capable of driving on highways! I was traveling at 75 mph, the tire pressure light came on the dash, my car and steering wheel began to vibrate/jerk, car fishtailed, and I was thrown perpendicular into traffic! I was lucky to not be hit by other drivers on the highway as they were able to stop (second time, there were no other cars behind me). This happened twice! these wheels are not safe! NHTSA needs to launch a full investigation.
