#37 of 66 Official Notice from Honda regarding FIT
Feb 16, 2007 (4:11 pm)
I just received the official Safety Improvement Campaign: FIT SRS Control Unit today in the mail. This is in regard to the frontal impact crash testing conducted by the NHTSA. Basically, the letter states that Honda is conducting a safety improvement campaign that involves reprogramming of the supplemental restraint system (SRS)control unit and telling me to contact my Honda dealer to have this problem reprogrammed.
Just thought I would share and see if anyone else received this notice. I plan on making an appointment next week.
#38 of 66 Official Notice From Honda/Airbag Recall

I have not received mine yet. Maybe they are starting with the first ones sold. I bought mine in October. Hopefully it will come soon.

Supposedly the Fits built after Nov 6 have the new airbag programming. I wonder how we'd check that?

I received the letter from Honda in today's mail. I'm gonna wait a little while before taking it in for the fix. Maybe that'll give the dealer some experience so that when they do mine it'll go a bit quicker.

I called my Honda dealer today and told them about the notice I had received in the mail regarding the airbag problem and reprogramming. They had not even gotten any notice from Honda about this problem and, upon checking with his service manager, the software to fix this problem has not even arrived yet. When my service contact tried looking up this problem on Honda's Website he found no notice of recall their either. I trust my dealership as they have done all work for me on all my Honda's for 15 years without any problems. He advised me to call back in about two weeks to see if the software was in for reprogramming.
Upon asking why they did not know and I did he stated that Honda had sent letters out to their customers first without notifying service departments as should have happened before sending letter to customers.
By the way, I purchased my FIT in mid June 2006.

I got my airbag notice last Friday regarding the Fit. Today I also noticed in USA Today that there is another problem potentially: odometer. The link follows and includes Fits to November 7 2006:
Interesting article. I wonder if American made automobiles are more accurate as one person in the article was quoted as saying.

I received notice from Honda regarding the odomoeter two weeks ago. The vehicles listed in the letter, which include 2007 fits manufactured before November, automatically receive a 15% extension on their warranties.

I havent received any notice regarding my odometer. Mine was built in September. I did just receive my airbag recall notice today. It goes in to my Honda dealer to have the computer reprogrammed tomorrow morning.
