2008 Honda Accord
Honda is recalling 303,904 Accords in the US because the software calibration can make their side airbags deploy too easily. The company has 19 allegations of injuries from the issue.
NHTSA is investigating 384,000 units of the 2008 Honda Accord after 19 reports of the airbag control module failing, including one injury.
When Honda released information about the development of its Advanced VTEC (A-VTEC) system in September, we were looking forward to seeing how the new system would be employed in the next generation of Acuras and Hondas. The system will increase torque, power and fuel economy, all while oozing fewer emissions into the atmosphere. Good stuff, all of it.
