2001-2002 Accord, Civic , CR-V and Odyssey have potential air bag issues that put out too much pressure upon deployment. Owners will be notified if there vehicles are included in this recall. 2007 -2008 Fit model-year Honda Fit, related to the master power window switch. In some very limited instances, when an extreme amount of liquid, such as rain or melted snow, floods the master power window switch in the driver’s door, it may result in a switch malfunction with a potential for overheating. Mods, if this has been posted already, my bad..just wanted to get the word out if not can we please move it to headlines .

American Honda Motor Co., Inc. Announces Expansion of Driver’s Airbag Inflator Recall
American Honda Motor Co., Inc has expanded a previously announced recall of certain 2001 and 2002 model-year vehicles to replace the driver’s airbag inflator in an additional 378,758 vehicles in the U.S. The driver’s airbag inflators in these vehicles may deploy with too much pressure, which can cause the inflator casing to rupture and could result in injury or fatality.

In total, American Honda is aware of 12 incidents related to this issue as of February 2010. While American Honda was aware of two additional events when the decision to first expand the recall was made in July 2009, we are not aware of any new events that have occurred after July 2009. However, we have concluded that we cannot be completely certain that the driver’s airbag inflator in the vehicles being added to this recall at this time will perform as designed. Therefore, we have decided to add certain 2001 and 2002 Accord, Civic, Odyssey, CR-V, and selected 2002 Acura TL vehicles to this recall.

American Honda is announcing this recall expansion to encourage all owners of these vehicles to take their vehicle to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification from American Honda that their vehicle is affected. Notification to customers will start within this month.

As with nearly all Honda and Acura safety recalls, American Honda originally brought this matter to the attention of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and has kept NHTSA apprised of our decision to include additional vehicles in the expanded recall. At this time, there is no action required on the part of the customer. While we know the range of affected vehicles, we are currently processing the specific vehicle identification numbers (VINs) of the expanded group that will receive notifications by mail. We also expect to have more detailed recall information about specific vehicles available at this website beginning at 2:00 p.m. Pacific time on Friday, February 12, 2010.

Owners of these vehicles will be able to determine if their vehicle requires repair by going on-line or calling. Honda owners can go to http://owners.honda.com/recalls or call (800) 999-1009; Acura owners can go to http://owners.acura.com/recalls or call (800) 382-2238. If calling, customers should select menu item 4.

We apologize for any inconvenience or concern that this matter may cause to you or your family. Please rest assured that American Honda will make every effort to notify affected owners as soon as possible.http://www.ahm-ownerlink.com/maintenance/Airbag_recall.asp

So it affects 2002's. Hmmm. maybe I should just replace my wheel with a bagless one, since apparently the bag is just going to kill me anyway...

I have a 2002 and I checked ownerlink, no recall for me so I guess I got a good one. I have a JDM CR-V anyway so I like to think the quality is better.

Lol @ bagless wheel, you should see what Mustang guys have to go through to get the car to stop freaking out when the airbag(s) are removed for a racing wheel. Likely the same thing on Honda products.

Don't even need to call, just check ownerlink. That really is a nice setup for figuring out exactly what recalls happened for your vehicle.
