Nothing came up for either of mine, but looking at the DVSA recalls page, they would appear to fall within the VIN range.

I'll have to get onto Universal Honda Ltd, as both my cars are ex-UK and may fall between the cracks as far as the letters go.

I just received the same Honda letter today.

However, my car was built in China and the VIN, beginning LUCGE, doesn't show up on DVLA Recall checker with regards to the air bag issue.  The Honda recall checker doesn't list anything either when I enter the full VIN.

Update:  I found this article which may be relevant to the latest recall affecting cars made between 2007 to 2011:

FYI guys

I received the same Honda letter in September but no follow up. Than I went to buy a part in the Colliers Honda Tuesday, the part department guy nicely pointed out me there were two recalls of the airbags for my Jazz, told me to book it on the service department. Then booked it to be done for Friday, and the car should be ready for collection today.  ;)

I had mine just done, it was just under one hour ....(is this normal?) when they told me it will take 2 hrs, and when they gave me the car key back they gave me a list of faults they found like clutch fluid contamination 3% and other staff .....to fix they ask for 350
I never ask them to look for faults but they said they do it as standard ....
I wander if they did the job or look for more work???

When the recall was first publicised, I checked the VIN of both my cars and they were showing as clear on the Honda UK recall VIN checker. There were no details on the Honda IRL website. The only place with affected VINs was the DVSA recalls on the government website. (It was probably on the pan-European product recalls website, but I didn't check at the time.)

Then on checking back a month or two later, I did see a page on the Irish website, listing affected VINs. UK recall VIN checker was still clear.

Mid-November, I had another peek and saw that the Irish page had disappeared again and the UK recall VIN checker was finally updated to reflect the outstanding recall on the both vehicles. Being lazy, and not unduly panicked, I thought I'd wait and see how long it would take Honda to cross-check the National Vehicle File and drop me a letter...

Well I got my first letter from Universal Honda Ltd (Ireland) on 27 Nov 2015, but that was for the car that is current off the road. Then on the 3 Dec 2015, I got the letter for the one I was using:


05_AIRBAG_RECALL_01_2015_12_02 by E Honda, on Flickr

I was down in the direction of a dealer last Tuesday to order some parts and book it in for the recall work. They said it would be 5 days to get both inflators in and they were keen to get it booked in that day rather than set a date after the parts had arrived. So it was booked in for today (17th).

Don't know what I'm going to do for approximately three hours.  Best I take a book as there isn't much to do in the town.

I have spoken to Honda UK as my car is affected and I have received no follow up letter and was told due to the shear volume of affected models it can't send letters to all affected owners at the same time and will do in phases, also if they did it all at once it would overwhelm the dealer network.........

Well that was a so-so trip.

Dropped the car off at 9am,  said I be back at noon. Wandered into town to a Costa Coffee and got a jumbo mug and sat down to freeload the internet. A couple of hours later went for a mooch before returning to the dealer at noon.

Slight problem. Asked if it was a UK import and said they did the passenger airbag ok, but the connector for the driver's airbag that they ordered in was not the correct type. Said to me that the car has a "MY2004" connector, rather than the 2005 they had ordered in. Inflator physically would fit, but connector no. The VIN is quite clearly a MY2005, so I don't buy that excuse completely. Booked a return visit for 7th Jan 2016.

No attempt to flog me anything. (No comment made on the transmission slipping in reverse either)

Got into the car and drove away. Noticed that all my radio stations were not lost and exactly as left in the morning. Clock set spot on as left. Start clutch calibration was spot-on. Hmmm. I very much doubt that the tech was so conscientious as to reprogramme all that. Are they not meant to disconnect the battery for at least 3 minutes before playing with the SRS system?

Anyway, a couple of parts / service items arrived in on Saturday that I collected whilst I was there. Also the DPD man turned up with a trailer wiring kit which I'm going to try and cram in and do before Christmas.

I believe you can disable the airbags through the OBD-II connector, plus they are pretty stable.
