Complaint - Air Bags

MY VEHICLE WAS PARKED AT HOME AND I WAS GETTING GROCERIES OUT OF MY CAR AND PUSHED THE DOOR SHUT WITH MY BEHIND. NEXT THING I HEAR IS A HUGE BOOM AND I LOOK BACK AND MY AIRBAGS ON THE PASSENGER SIDE OF MY CAR WERE COMPLETELY DEPLOYED. MY CURTAIN AIRBAGS AND MY SEAT AIRBAG BOTH DEPLOYED. I WENT TO THE SAM SWOPE DEALERSHIP AT 1 SWOPE AUTOCENTER DR, LOUISVILLE, KY 40299 WHERE I PURCHASED MY CAR AND EXPLAINED THE ISSUE TO THEM. THEY TOLD ME THAT THIS HAPPENS ALL THE TIME IN 2008 ACCORDS AND THAT THEY WOULD TAKE A LOOK AT IT AND GET BACK TO ME. THEY PROCEEDED TO TELL ME THEY SAW NO DEFAULT CODES SO IT WAS NOT THEIR RESPONSIBILITY TO FIX IT AND QUOTED ME $5000 THAT I WOULD HAVE TO PAY OUT OF POCKET TO FIX IT. I WAS ANGRY AND TOLD THEM I WOULD NOT STAND FOR IT AND I WANTED TO SPEAK WITH CORPORATE. I HAD TO THEN TAKE MY VEHICLE BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP FOR CORPORATE TO LOOK IT OVER. A WEEK OR SO LATER I RECEIVED A PHONE CALL FROM THE CORPORATE OFFICE INFORMING ME THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING THEY COULD DO AND IT WAS MY RESPONSIBILITY TO FIX IT. I WAS LIVID!!! I PAY MY CAR PAYMENT ON TIME EVERY MONTH, PAY FOR AN EXTENDED WARRANTY AND GAP INSURANCE BUT OBVIOUSLY HONDA DOES NOT HOLD TRUE TO TREATING THEIR CUSTOMERS THE WAY THEY SHOULD BE TREATED. I AM 24 YEARS OLD AND SINGLE AND DO NOT $5000 JUST LAYING AROUND TO FIX THE ISSUE, SO I HAVE BEEN DRIVING AROUND EVER SINCE WITH NO AIRBAGS ON THE PASSENGER SIDE. I TRULY HOPE THE MORE PEOPLE THAT COME FORWARD WITH THIS ISSUE WILL GET 2008 HONDA ACCORDS RECALLED. PAYING $400 A MONTH FOR 3 MORE YEARS OF THE 6 YEAR LOAN I HAVE IS VERY FRUSTRATING WHEN HONDA DOES NOT STAND BEHIND THEIR PRODUCTS WHATSOEVER.
