In addition to the takata inflators recall, the SRS computer is not functioning. When the dealership replaced an inflator last year, they noticed that the SRS computer is completely dead and said I will need to purchase a new one.

Driving solo, speed below the 65 mph speed limit, in left lane of a four lane divided highway (state highway 1, southbound, approximately 1/4 mile before airport bl exit). Highway was being repaved. Left lane was finished, and asphalt raised between 4 and 6 inches above right lane. Steered to the right to avoid construction debris and right front wheel went partially off the raised pavement onto the old pavement. Steering wheel suddenly veered to the right and would not allow correction to be made to the left. No steering control at all. Steering locked in position and resisted all efforts by driver to move steering wheel from fixed position. Vehicle left the road onto the unpaved shoulder and did a complete rollover. Side airbags deployed. Roof crushed and extensive body damage - judged total loss by insurance company. Driver suffered severe fractures of the left arm and wrist requiring surgery, and multiple contusions. Lengthy physical therapy and rehabilitation required and suffers permanent impairment of left arm.

Dec. 8th, 2011 - 18694 miles Dec. 8th, 2012 - 24941 miles Dec. 21st, 2012 - 25225 miles March 30th, 2013 - 28300 miles the problem is that suddenly the car losses power while driving, it does not respond to any action and stalls; the engine and vsa lights come on. The exact same incident occurred at each one of the dates provided. Every time this happened I took the vehicle to the dealership service department, got it back supposedly fixed, and with the assurance that the problem had been taken care of, obviously this is not the case. The problem persists, the car has broken down on an average of every 3,000 miles. From the very first time, besides been told by the service advisor (mary roe) at courtesy Honda in sanford, fl; I knew without any doubt that we were dealing with a safety issue. I am submitting the information pertinent to these occurrences because my confidence in this car is compleatly eroded since the nature of the problen could definitely be the cause of a crash, injury or death. I consider myself fortunate enough to have been driving on local roads every time this problem has occurred, the result of this type of malfunction on an expessway could certainly have been disastrous. Since March 30th, 2013 the car has been in the shop, and it has proven difficult communicating with Honda. Their willingness to assist me with this less than safe and unreliable vehicle, seems to be decreasing rapidly with each new incident. Any assistance your office provides on this matter will be immensely appreciated. [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
