I went in for an oil change this morning and they ordered a driver's airbag inflator (part# 15-040) for my 2004 EX. The service advisor said it takes about 45 minutes to install.

They also tried to get me to do a bunch of stuff at the 105k interval that had already been done by my independent mechanic. I probably could have dropped $2k there today if I did everything they recommended (timing belt/water pump, new plugs, valve adjustment, and rear shocks). I did watch them get a woman to pay $90 to have her cabin and air filters changed though. :(
Almost makes you wonder if some recalls are green-lit so they can get a whole bunch of easy targets into the dealerships to upsell and overcharge them. :xnuts:

AHM is plenty diligent when it comes to cluing dealers in on potential customers. My discount coupons come with my VIN printed on them (I bought the car in another state). As far as the airbag recall, it is far less as diligent. I don't think notification of any kind has been sent in MA to date. The service upsell is typical across the industry. Once your vehicle goes beyond the warranty period, you become a target.

Yeah, I still haven't received anything from Honda about this particular recall. Since they had contacted me pretty quickly about the other three recalls (transmission, headlight, & ignition interlock) I had just assumed that they would probably have to stagger the notices due to the large number of cars that fall under it.

Second Air Bag recall

Frist recall notice that I received from Honda was back in April, but was not completed till the last part of June due to waiting for the honda's back order to come in. Now in mid part of June I received a second safety recall notice from Honda stating that, Quote "Even if your vehicle was previously repaired, your vehicle is still covered by this recall and will need to be repaired again"

I had my recall fix and now the airbag light started to turn ON. Dealer said they're waiting for a part? So, it was just a temp fix or they disabled something?

second recall

I didn't see my vin# before on the first recall notice list either when I got my first notice in the mail and I still don't see it now, with the second notice received in the mail , So I'm only going by the second notice that Honda sent me,
Honda Quoted "been previously repaired and need repair again" Oh well
I'll be calling the dealer Monday to schedule the second repair and see what happens

Recall

Called the local Honda deader today (7/27) and was told that there was no present recall on my Honda Pilot and if I wanted to call Honda direct to double check, So I did and was told the same thing and to disregard the second notice I received from them.
I even looked it up on the Honda's recall web site and got the same results

Went to the dealer 2-3 months ago with my 06 and ran my number and was told that my pilot was not included in the recall. Got a letter from Honda today. Went back to the dealer today and was told that Honda expanded the recall, They plan to replace the airbag on the driver side. Parts here in 7-10 days, about an hour to install,

Waiting here at local honda dealer for the 2nd airbag recall. First when they said they fixed all the recall. Second is when the SRS light turned ON. They said there is a part needed?

Looks like the fix is quite different for different years. One poster from MA stated the SRS light came on after the recall repair. And he had to cough up $375 for a bad sensor. Was he scammed or is it a special multi-step fix for '05's?

Now they just reminded me that the SRS light was from the seatbelt sensor that is broken. Covered under warranty. Not sure if it's the same thing.

Done. Got a letter over the summer and a call to take it in last week. Dropped the Pilot off at Excel Honda before work and got a call before lunch to tell me it was ready.

Not that I have the intention of testing it any time soon, but it's good to know the Takata airbag won't pepper me and my passengers with friendly fire the next time I crash.

Also got the airbag recall notice for the passenger side yesterday - about a year after the driver's side. Funny thing is the letter suggests that owner should refrain from using the passenger seat until the repair is made.
