Each year, the automotive industry makes tremendous leaps and bounds in the ways of technological advancements. In many cases, this even results in an improved level of safety for passengers. In spite of such a positive trend in recent years, however, 2015 has proven to be one of the worst in vehicle manufacturing history for auto recalls and accident frequency—each and every lawyer here at Robert J. DeBry has taken note.
Because of this, motorists from the largest American cities to those residing in Farmington, Utah are on the lookout for potential problems. Most recently, in fact, one of America’s most popular car suppliers, Honda, made headlines for suspicion of a potential recall.
According to a piece recently published by the Washington Post, 2008 Honda Accords may very well have an issue with airbag inflation. Says the piece, “The agency [National Highway Traffic Safety Administration] says in documents posted Friday that it received 19 consumer complaints that the air bag control computer failed in the Accord, which then was Honda’s top-selling model.”
Apparently, an interior computer malfunction sometimes causes the air bag warning light to come on. Previously programmed, the vehicle’s airbags cease to function until fixed, causing problems for drivers. Whether in Farmington or elsewhere, this poses a real problem for owners of the 2008 Accord
Needless to say, if you’re the owner of a 2008 Honda Accord and have yet to have experienced any issues with it, we highly recommend that you have your vehicle checked by a reputable mechanic so as to avoid having to meet with an auto accident lawyer in the near future.
