MY SON WAS DRIVING HIS 2003 HONDA ACCORD 2DR EX V-6, WITH HIS 110 LB GIRLFRIEND. THE CAR WAS VERY HOT INSIDE, AS IT WAS A 90 DEGREE DAY. HE SLOWLY PULLED OUT OF HIS APARTMENT ENTRANCE. AS SOON AS HE TURNED ONTO A SMALL NEIGHOOD ROAD, THE SIDE PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAGS BOTH ACTIVATED WITH ABSOLUTELY NO COLLISION OR CONTACT WITH ANYTHING. LUCKILY HIS GIRLFRIEND WAS NOT INSURED, SHE DOES STILL HAVE A RINGING OR WHITE NOISE SOUND IN HER RIGHT EAR. I CAN+T IMAGINE WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED IF THEY WERE ON A MAJOR HIGHWAY. SHE DOES STILL HAVE A RINGING

POWER TRAIN

8/6/2018 - REDMOND, WA
WHILE DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY AT AROUND 65 MPH, ALL OF A SUDDEN THE CAR SEEMED LIKE IT WAS BRAKING BY ITSELF WITHOUT ME PRESSING THE BRAKES. I TOOK IT TO THE SHOP AND AFTER SPENDING HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS, FOUND OUT THAT THE TRANSMISSION IS DAMAGED AND BEYOND THE SECOND GEAR, IT IS SLIPPING. THIS IS WHAT CAUSED THAT DANGEROUS BEHAVIOR ON THE HIGHWAY. THIS COULD HAVE EASILY LED TO AN ACCIDENT BY BEING REAR ENDED OR WORSE. HONDA SHOULD REPLACE THE TRANSMISSION.

TAKATA RECALL----I CAN'T FIND OUT WHEN MY '03 ACCORD WILL BE RECALLED OR WHETHER IT'S CONSIDERED AMONG THE MOST AT RISK. HAVE HEARD NOTHING AND NHTSA VIN SEARCH INDICATES NO RECALL SO FAR. THIS IS VERY WORRISOME AS I HAVE ONLY ONE EYE AND A CRASH WITH THIS DEFECTIVE AIR BAG COULD LEAD TO TOTAL BLINDNESS OR WORSE.
