RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda is recalling certain passenger vehicles due to improper welding on the front passenger seat belt retractor mounting bracket. The bracket may separate from the vehicle body during a crash. Dealers will inspect and repair the brackets.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda recalled certain 1997-1995 Civics due to improper assembly of the cloth flaps that cover the folded air bag. The cloth flaps were found to be tucked in too far, which could prevent proper deployment of the air bag. This could result in an injury in the event of a collision. Dealers will repair the front passenger air bag module.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda is recalling 1995 Accord models because the SRS electronic control module may cause the air bag to deploy unexpectedly. This can result in abrasions or serious injury to occupant. Dealers will replace the SRS ECU in the air bag system.

Summary:
THE LATCH PLATE USED IN THE SEAT BELT BUCKLE WAS NOT MANUFACTURED ACCORDING TO DESIGN DIMENSIONS. IF THE SEAT BELT TONGUE IS INSERTED SLOWLY AT AN ANGLE INTO THE BUCKLE, THERE IS A POSSIBILITY OF PARTIAL ENGAGEMENT.
RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda has recalled certain 1996 Civics to repair a sticking brake booster check valve. If the check valve is sticking, power brake assist may not function. This could result in reduced braking performance, leading to a potential accident. Dealers will clean the check valve by washing the vacuum hose with hot water.

Summary:
THE PASSENGER AIR BAG WAS IMPROPERLY INSTALLED. THE RETAINER TABS USED TO SECURE THE LOWER MODULE TO THE UPPER HOUSING WERE DRILLED INCORRECTLY.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda is recalling certain Accords due to tire valve stems that were damaged during the assembly process. This can cause the tires to lose air pressure, which can result in steering pull, tire overheating, and eventual tire failure. Dealers will inspect and replace damaged tire stems.

Summary:
CONSTANT EXPANSION AND CONTRACTION OF THE CYLINDER HEAD CAUSES THE CAMSHAFT SEAL END PLUG CAN BECOME DISLODGED FROM THE CYLINDER HEAD. THIS ALLOWS OIL TO LEAK FROM THE CAMSHAFT.
