I have left several voice messages and have not obtained a response as of the writing of this.

Takata recall - I received a notice from Honda that my airbag has been recalled. I called to schedule an appointment to have it fix. I was told by superior Honda that it will be a few weeks before the part is available and another few weeks until they can get my car in to be fixed. I was then told that it's not that big of a deal since it was just my passenger airbag. I explained to the service tech that if it wasn't a big deal there wouldn't have been a recall on the part. He then told me that there was nothing else he could do for me. He could not provide me with a rental car but continued to tell me that it was no big deal and if I had any further questions to call Honda corporate office. I understand that it is the passenger side airbag but I feel like they should have been able to provide me with a date of when this issue would be resolved. I understand that this recall effected many vehicles but this issue is not being resolved as fast as it should be. I have spoken to many people who have the same issue and many of them have been provide with rental cars due to the fact it going to take longer than normal to fix. I feel like superior Honda could have done more for me instead of telling me that it was "no big deal". I am very unhappy with this dealership.

Takata recall...just rec'd he recall notice airbags & fuel system...called Honda and.....I think it is extremely unreasonable and unrealistic to send out a recall notice without an immediate resolution. Honda's suggestion is to not carry passengers in the front seat...which again..is unreasonable and unrealistic...if they are not able to fix this safety issue then they should provide a safe vehicle as a replacement until it is fixed. I hold Honda fully responsible and liable for any injuries or death that may result from their neglectful act.

I am a care giver to my elderly mother (87) whom is unable to sit in the back of my small Civic. If for any reason I have to go somewhere with my mom I would need a rental car. But after contacting Honda Corp. They are not willing to pay for rental when they don't feel responsible. Anyone riding in passenger side could have been killed if an accident ocured but they are not responsible. Adding to my stress already under caring for my altheimer mother. I guess I'm lucky they are going to get it in within eight days wow.. why are they not being investigated and repaying owners for there inconveince.
