A relatively minor crash lead to the death of a young driver and it didn’t need to happen. Her air bag deployed and a razor sharp piece of metal severed her carotid artery. Honda knew about it and tried to recall the car. The rental agency who owned the car never responded to the recall. The agency bought the vehicle at auction almost three years earlier, after it had been involved in a crash and was issued a salvage title. It had been under recall since 2009. Honda showed it mailed 4 recall notices without getting any response. Ask yourself if your car has a similar issue?
Cars with recalled airbags are more common than many of us know. In fact millions of cars are still waiting for replacement air bags and many still don’t know if their car is next. The issue comes down to the alpha inflator which means drivers side. The driver’s side has a 50-50 chance of inflating on impact. What complicates replacement is over a 10 year span of time a car may change hands 4 times and the current owner may not be known to the parent company. If they cannot find you there is no way for you to know you are at risk and you will not receive this free repair.
Rick Schostek, Executive Vice President of Honda says “We’re good at fixing vehicles but finding and convincing customers of older model vehicles to complete recalls has proven to be a difficult challenge.” Three of the Executives who manufactured the airbags were indicted and the company was fined $1 Billion dollars because the company had their own proof that the inflators were defective and deadly and ignored their own data! They ignored the data because making money was more important. Faced with spiraling debts estimated at more than $9 Billion dollars the company Takata filed bankruptcy last year.
