They're probably all bad. That regulators from the US had to pressure them to go this far makes me awfully suspicious.
Plus, the latest reports say Takata does not have a solid cause for the problem. I wonder if we will have to wear face guards until they resolve it. Toyota is advising having the air bag turned off.They're probably all bad. That regulators from the US had to pressure them to go this far makes me awfully suspicious.
If you want to get bumped up the list then having them pay for a loaner car helps. It won't guarantee a quick replacement but typically they will want to get you out of the rental/loaner car as fast as possible. I also don't know if they require that you leave your car at the dealer when you take the loaner, which might be a big downside. But if anyone truly isn't comfortable driving their car as it is then it is a good option.Going on 3 months that I called my Honda dealer to schedule airbag replacement on my '08 Pilot. I got the letter in the mail from Honda. Dealer says I'm in their computer list and they are waiting for the part(s) to arrive.
It is likely just random depending on what they or the local rental car place they use has available. Some dealers have their own 'fleet' of rental cars and others use places like Budget or Enterprise. It might be worth checking with them to see if they have something like a CR-V available though..... I do need my SUV for hauling musical gear most every weekend. So if they offered me even a 4dr sedan, prolly wouldn't work out.
But if I have a choice of at least a CR-V, might work. Or would it just be a random rental car? The CR-V is sort of the next car I'm considering when replacing my Pilot in fall 2016. So be nice to teset one out for awhile. ...
Thanks Dnick! I will be bringing that printout along with the bulletin stating they will give the customer a loaner until repairs are completed when I go to the dealership Monday. We'll see if this "jump-starts" the process. Still no letter from Honda and Honda CS was no help when I called.If you check back in this (or other?) thread, you'll find a Honda link that you can check for yourself by entering your VIN. If it's covered (most likely is), then take that with you to the dealer when you go in.
