Maybe GM should consider outsourcing their ignition locks.

It didn't used to be a problem with older designs, did it? Maybe they should go back to those.

Or they could switch everything to pushbutton start, that way the blame can be shifted to drivers who don't know how to operate the damn thing in an emergency since it's not the standard interface that their reflexes are trained for and it doesn't work the same way in an emergency as it does in normal conditions...

First GM ignition-switch lawsuit is dismissed amid perjury allegations

“Plaintiff’s counsel picked the wrong plaintiff and didn’t vet him well enough to catch huge problems with using him in a bellwether. The judge cannot be amused,” said Erik Gordon, a business professor at the University of Michigan who isn’t involved in the case.

Honda prepares to recall 2016 Civics over possible engine failure
Image
Well, at least it's less than 3000 cars.
http://www.autonews.com/article/2016022 ... news-daily

Update - Piston Pin Snap Rings are to Blame:
TO: All Honda Parts & Service Managers, Advisors and Personnel
FROM: Campaign Administration
RE: Stop Sale/Safety Recall: 2016 Civic Piston Pin Snap Ring

On Friday, January 29, 2016, American Honda notified NHTSA of a stop sale and safety recall for approximately 34,000 2016 Civic vehicles due to potentially missing or misset piston pin snap rings that may cause engine stall or failure. Any new or used units in dealer stock must be inspected, and if necessary, repaired per service bulletin 16-017, Safety Recall: Piston Pin Snap Ring once the parts, tools, and complete repair information are available. Refer to your eResponsibility report or VIN inquiry to determine which units in your inventory are affected by this safety recall.

Note: Affected vehicles should not be sold until the repair has been completed. Should an unrepaired vehicle result in any claim because of the required recall repair, the dealership will be solely responsible to the claimant, and will be required to defend and indemnify American Honda for any resulting claims.

All affected units will require use of a borescope to inspect the four cylinders to confirm correct piston pin snap ring placement. Vehicles exhibiting any concerns with piston pin snap ring placement may require replacement of damaged pistons, piston pins or rings, or other related engine components.

Replacement parts are not available at this time. American Honda is working to procure a sufficient number of borescopes and replacement parts to satisfy this recall. As such, the version of bulletin 16-017 posted on the Service Information System does not currently contain any tool, parts, warranty, inspection, or repair information. Once tools and parts are made available, American Honda will revise service bulletin 16-017 to include all details related to this recall. American Honda will notify dealers of the bulletin revision and tool distribution details via iN message.

Customers affected by this safety recall may visit your dealership prior to tool, parts and/or repair procedure availability. Please be sure to inform these customers of the safety recall, being sure to let them know that tools and parts are not currently available, and that they will be notified once supply stabilizes. American Honda expects to conduct customer notification in mid-March 2016. By this time, all necessary tools, parts and details are expected to be available.

As always, please be sure to check VIN status inquiry to determine if this or any open safety recall applies to a particular vehicle.

Speaking of less than 3000 cars,....


There will be less than 3000 cars on the planet that haven't been recalled after Takata announces their latest Airbag Inflator recalls.

Takata airbag ruptures caused by mix of 3 factors, investigators find

David Kelly, leader of the ITC and former chief of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, said it was the combination of these three factors -- the use of ammonium nitrate, the construction of Takata’s inflator assembly and the exposure to heat and humidity -- that made the inflators vulnerable to rupture.

“You can’t have the energetic disassembly without all three factors,” Kelly told Automotive News. “You have to have all three.”

Hey David, doncha hafta have a collision, too?

Think of all the lives that were saved by GM ignition switches when they kept the airbags from going off.

Honda and Takata conducted stealth airbag fix in 2009, report says
Image
In August of 2009, after ruptured airbag inflators in Honda vehicles were linked to least four injuries and a death, the automaker quietly requested a design change and did not notify U.S. regulators, Honda confirmed in response to inquiries from Reuters.

Honda Motor Co. asked supplier Takata Corp. to produce a "fail-safe" airbag inflator, according to Takata presentations and internal memos reviewed by Reuters.

The request shows that Honda understood the safety risks posed by the inflators long before it started expanding recalls by the millions in 2014, the attorneys and law professors said.

Honda officials "made a determination of a defect when they asked for the fail-safe design," said Kristensen. "They had an obligation to tell the government back in 2009. Good luck defending that."
