problem #3

The driver's side airbag, the driver's side curtain airbag, the passenger's side airbag, and the passenger's side curtain airbag (a total of 4 airbags) of the 2018 Honda Odyssey LX unnecessarily and dangerously deployed in a rear-end collision that did not did not cause side displacement or rollover of the vehicle. The front passenger's side airbag deployed with no passengers present in the vehicle, which could even have been a safety hazard if, for example, there were a child in the front passenger seat. This occurrence contradicts the airbag deployment conditions specified in the owner's guide, which state that that the aforementioned airbags should deploy in the case of side impact or rollover situations. This unnecessary and dangerous airbags deployment: A) increased the risk of a secondary collision by startling and distracting the driver at the exact time it was crucial to Focus and safely stop the vehicle, B) increased the accident-induced traumatic stress on the driver from the impact shock of the deployed airbags, and C) increased the cost of vehicle repair by necessitating the replacement of the needlessly deployed airbags, which is about 40% of the estimated total cost of repair. Reported the issue to the american Honda motor company, torrance, ca, however, they refused to investigate it. Please see the attached document for details.

"takata recall" second: Upon closing the rear sliding doors they became stuck in an open position. It took stopping and physically closing them to ensure they would close and lock. Upon research Honda has a recall for this brand new van for the sliding doors as well but failed to mention it during our recent service and complaint. The vehicle was parked and loading.
