 Description of the problemI was involved in a six vehicle accident in which i rear ended another vehicle going at a speed of about 55 mph, i had major front end damage which led to my car being totaled. During the accident, my passenger seat airbag deployed (with no one sitting in the seat) and my driver side airbag did not deploy. The seat belt extended so far that i hit my chest against the steering, which tells me it did not lock. I notified honda concerning this issue, they had an inspector come out, just to tell me that my car was "smart, but stupid" that it is not up to safety code for today, but it was at the time it was released in 2004! This is completely absurd to me. I've obtain other opinions in the matter and they agree as well. After reading other complaints concerning this problem, i believe this should have been investigated further. Not simply swept under the rug or the statement made "the car did what it was suppose to do". Obviously it did not. People could have been killed. And i will be going further with my complaint.

  • What is Recall?

    A recall is when a product is removed from the market or a correction is made to the product because it is either defective or potentially harmful.
  • What is Failure?

    Failure is the state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective, and may be viewed as the opposite of success. Product failure ranges from failure to sell the product to fracture of the product, in the worst cases leading to personal injury, the province of forensic engineering.
