For my 2010 Civic, Driver side inflator needs replacement :-(!! Checked the chasis number on the Honda microsite.
It gives me goosebumps to think I have been driving with the assurance all these years.

Lets wait until 12th Oct.

This is an extremely important question and HONDA should answer this!

As per my HASS advisor they are yet to receive parts and as already known it will happen after 12 oct. They will get a list of cars from Honda directly.

If I remember correctly this recall had started much earlier globally - a year or two back I think, please correct me if am wrong. What took Honda so long to start the recall only now in India? Is it because we dont have consumer pressure or strong laws?

I believe this is because both have different types of mounts and bags, one inside steering wheel and the other inside dash. In any case, my Feb 2010 Civic V-AT is up for replacing Driver Side Airbag Inflator.

Now with the VW scandal out in the news this one from Honda has taken a back burner and is not being talked as actively.

Some posts have mentioned that Honda website at first suggested that their product is not applicable for this recall. However, when they checked it over again, they found their car in the recall list. So, I would ask every Honda owner to check with the website regularly, and not just once. I am doing the same since the news . All the best fellow Honda owners

I have a 2010 Jazz.

Had checked earlier and the Honda microsite said no recalls applicable.
Checked today, and says Driver side inflator needs replacement.

Speaks volumes of their manufacturing data traceability capabilities & willingness to correct past mistakes.

Anyway, any idea if Honda is willing to throw in a free service while the car is at the dealership for this recall

cheers

Same with my 2010 Jazz as well. Earlier website said, no replacement required. Now, when I checked again, it says replacement required. They are uploading data in phases I guess.

My 2010 VMT needs a driver side airbag replacement.

What exactly will be done? Replace only the 'inflator' or the whole Airbag setup (whatever it comprises) ?

My car had a sight rattle from inside the steering boss. HASS could never sort it out. One of the SA's had told me that they may need to open the Airbag module and that's not a good thing since the factory fitment will be gone. Not sure if that's the truth or he was trying to escape addressing the problem !

Hope the rattle goes away after this.

Did anybody receive a call from Honda regarding the replacement? Honda claimed that they will start contacting affected vehicle owners post 12/10/15.

Do we have any such reports from the forum?
