Honda have been chasing me for years regarding the air bag recall and never got around to arranging it with a dealer but just had another letter today saying that an AA technician can now come out to me and do it at my home!

Will give them a ring tomorrow and try to arrange it. :)

That’s very kind of Honda.. although we all know this is more about them covering their own ***es rather than being concerned about the safety of their customers.

THe AA has been known to contract out work to other businesses so you may not actually get a man in a yellow van on the day.

(I believe it is arses as opposed to ***es.)

Hi, I am a bit late to this one but I am also being hounded from Honda ( this will be the 2nd one they have fitted ! and it also failed)
How did you get the AA to do it ? I am with the RAC - Did Honda suggest it or are you in the AA ? did you just phone the AA and ask ? I would appreciate some help here, I asked a garage but they said it HAS to be fitted by Honda ! Really appreciate some help.
Cheers

I had a letter through the post from Honda to have the airbag done on my 8th gen, gives a number to ring. I'd ring Honda if you haven't got details as I did before and got it booked in then COVID hit so it was cancelled. Really need to get it done

Hi, thanks for the info - I am on I think my 5th letter from Honda !!!! My local APPROVED Honda dealership replaced the faulty part around 5/6 years ago - the last 5 letter`s from Honda are saying that the part that was fitted was also faulty !!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will NOT take my car to my Honda dealer as they buggered my auto gearbox up 4 years ago AND charged me £500 odd quid for the privilege !!!! I had to get a fully recon box (Tameside Transmission Manchester They were great and I highly recommend them) at a cost of £2004 inc transporting the car to them. I will NOT deal with my local APPROVED Honda dealer ever again, I want to get the part replaced but NOT by Honda and that is why - I will give Honda UK a ring tomorrow and ask the question, fingers crossed OR it does not get done, simple !
Thanks again for the info, I will let you know the outcome.

Hi all just contacted Honda UK re: TAKATA airbag recall - good news, they said YES, and I am now waiting for the AA to contact me to carry out the recall on my drive :D we will see, I will keep you posted.
Thanks again

Hi all, update - yes the AA came out today and fitted the new Takata airbag module, when he took the old one off - he confirmed it WAS the new one that Honda replaced around 5/6 years ago !!!!!!! But he replaced it anyway as he said Honda would keep hounding me if not ! Took about 15 mins total.
So thanks again for the heads up - and like me if you keep getting letters - just arrange it with the AA.

Hi Channel Hopper,
Thanks for the info - I guess most people don`t realise the vast implications this has had, including me and at least now I have had it done ! All I have to sort out now is my "Electric Lift Tailgate" (see my previous post) and then my car is as near perfect as it can be.
Thanks again for the info.
Jim

I'm quite astounded that a company that has supplied products saving countless lives and prevented millions of injuries is on the brink of collapse thanks to ambulance chasing lawyers and financial speculators.

Hi, I am not surprised in the least ! Its a sign of what most of society has become - and should be a real worry to us all - too many greedy people without morals with an eye on making a quick buck at someone else`s cost and the sooner people realise it the better ! But I am not holding my breath.
