Honda is Awesome! (Check For Recalls)

April 7th, 2016 at 12:44 pm

We found out recently that my husband's Honda Ridgeline is part of the air bag recall. We received a letter with notification and indication that the parts won't be available until this summer.

Last week my husband went into the dealership for an oil change and some other services. Honda offered to hold the truck in their lot until the repair can be made. In exchange they offered a rental car. We talked it over and decided it was worth it to take them up on the offer. If we didn't and something happened we would definitely regret it. In fact, a 17 year old girl was just killed by a Honda airbag this week in Texas. She went to my friends' daughter's school.

So my husband is now driving a bright red Jeep, until the repairs are made. All of this is of no cost to us. I'm just hoping the Jeep gets better gas mileage. Smile

So I think Honda is definitely doing the right thing in regards to handling this recall with an abundance of caution. I encourage anyone with a Honda to check if your vehicle is on the recall list for the airbags. The website is here.

    My van was included and they've done the work free-of-charge.

    Jenn, so glad to hear you are now driving a safe vehicle! Smile And, yes, no charge.

    We also received a recall notice for an airbag from BMW, but unlike you, they do not have the parts available and they said they would let us know when it becomes available. Frown

    Yes, I did some looking and there are TWELVE manufacturers with these air bags!

    Frugalista,I would ask the dealer to provide rental car...ask they why they won't since Honda is.

    I got a notice just a couple of weeks ago about my car being part of the recall. That reminded me I need to take care of it!

    Nice!

    That's a great response you got from Honda with the rental offer, etc. They probably are trying to avoid a big loss of faith and customer exoduc, like what happened with Toyota and VW.

    Good customer service from Honda!

    I hate to admit it, but I've gotten multiple recall notices for my car, and have never even opened them ... I'd guess if I took it into a dealership, they'd know what they all were without my having the notices?
