Is there any contact information on the recall. If not I would try and contact the manufacture or it's representative for your area.

Calling Honda tomorrow. Checked the NHTSA website, found multiple complaints for the same problem on the 2008 models so I filed one there as well -- bringing all info to the dealership & hoping they will do something.

What exactly is your car doing, and why is it related to the recall?

The car is stuttering and stalling. According to the dealership a spring in the valve assembly broke -- same thing as in the recall for the 2009/2010 models, but ours is a 2008.
