1 month ago, I was just driving on freeway, the air bag just popped out for no reason. I lost control of the car for couple of seconds, but I was able to calm down and pull over to the shoulder.
I took the car to the dealer and they sent all the data to Honda. The result I received is that the air bag was working properly, the reason for auto deploy is that they found a dent on the rear control arm at the bottom of the car (I have no idea what that is). My insurance paid for the repair and I only needed to pay for the deduction. However, this thing really bothers me. I can hardly believe the explanation that Honda gave me. I cannot say for other cities, driving in Los Angeles, scratching the bottom of the car could happen every single day, in and out of the parking lot, the bumps on the street, etc. Now Honda tells me that will trigger my air bag to explode (yes, it was an explosion). If it is true, then it only means the car has design problem.
My insurance paid for the repair and I only needed to pay for the deduction. However, it is true that I don't have big financial damage, but the mental damage surely happened. It was a terrifying experience. Every time I got into my car I am as nervous as heck. I could not drive on freeway for about 2 weeks, now I am better because I have to go to work, but I only drive at the right lane because I am so scared that anything could happen.
I believe the car is either defected, or has design problem, and I hope Honda could give me a reasonable explanation.
