1. If your fire extinguisher shot out liquid propane when you needed to put out a flame, you’d be surprised.

    If your door lock opened in the middle of the night just because it was windy out, you’d be confused. It’s scary when the things that are supposed to protect you fail.

    This is where we're at with Honda's airbags. These clouds of safety have turned into a stormy nightmare (and I'm not even talking about the Takata mess).…

  2. 2015 CR-V owners are sick and tired of their SUVs making them sick and tired. The combination of the continuously variable transmission (CVT) and the new "Earth Dreams" direct-injection engine has created a vibration nightmare.

    Some owners say the vibrations are so bad, especially at low RPMs, they're actually getting nauseous. Well, at least we know what the 'V' in CR-V stands for now.…

  3. how did Honda get off without having to fix the problem?

    By telling NHTSA what they wanted to hear:

    1. They said the issue can be traced to early production issues with torque sensors. Issues that were "quickly" resolved. No word on just how quick we're talking about here.
    2. They said most of those faulty sensors have already kicked the bucket ... at least they think. So nothing to worry about here, right?

    Well, NHTSA agreed. They said power steering failure was a "declining trend" and didn't warrant a recall. But of course they had to get one last jab under the ribs of owners:

    "The closing of [the investigation] does not constitute a determination that no defect exists."

    Gee, thanks guys. Full details about the investigation are available on CarComplaints.com.

  4. recalling 6,786 Accord Hybrids

    because of software problems in the battery cell voltage sensor.

    The battery sensors can get freaked out by electrical noise from the inverter or motor circuit, switch the car into "fail-safe" mode, and turn your sedan into a glorified go-kart. That's because fail-safe shuts off the internal combustion engine, limits speeds to 40 mph and only gives you 2 miles before the battery drains and your car stalls out.

    Sounds like a fun day if you're a big fan of headaches and getting honked at.…

  8. It's Friday, so in the immortal words of Loverboy I feel I can say that "everybody is working for the weekend."

    That is, unless you're one of the defective airbags in over 2.1 million vehicles. Those suckers don't work at all.
