Throughout the whole Takata debacle, the only Civic's I've seen on the list were 2001-2005 models. I was a bit surprised to see 2006-2011 models left off, honestly.

Any source to back that up? They've recently expanded the number of cars affected to almost 34 million. Air bag recall expected to be largest in U.S. history

For those wondering about recalls on their car you can visit Honda's website and enter your VIN. Recall Information for Safety & Defects | Honda Owners Site
I don't have a written source and my contact, for such info, has since retired.
I'll contact his replacement and see if there is public record on the subject.

Or, enter your VIN on the site you posted and see that no recalls on airbags exist... today.

Here's an article with a lot more info. Everything You Need to Know About the Takata Airbag Recall - Consumer Reports News

One interesting tidbit from the article is that Takata has to make the replacement airbags. Yup, the company who made the defective ones will be making the replacement ones and it could take a few years to replace them all.

Replacements are priority based... meaning those in very hot and humid climates will get the replacements first. Sucks for us Canadians, but then our airbags won't be as affected.

I'm assuming it will take a while for Honda to compile the data and figure out which cars are affected.

Their CEO has probably already done the hari kari thing. This is a pretty big "oopsie" and not really good for the P&L statements....or people, or reputations. Best thing to do is not get in a wreck and for gubment require a minimum of 120 IQ to get a license. That would remove most people from the roads. ;)

You could try calling Honda CR for Canada and see what they say.
Understand, if your car has not spent significant time in high humidity conditions. The chance of you getting hurt from the defective inflater is small.
Remember, first you have to crash the car... No crash, no deployment, no problem.

Not really worried about crashing my car. But I can't control others who may plow into me and cause my airbags to deploy. Although I've never hit one, deer sometimes play on the highways where I live. And they can sometimes be stupid and unpredictable.

True you can't control other's stupidity.
Deer are pretty stupid.

Can I disable SRS (front airbag system) by pulling the fuse? (Wife's RDX) There's a separate fuse just for this.

My car is out of commission with idle issues right now.

Disabling the airbag is a difficult decision, as death from bleeding out from shrapnel is real, however unlikely.

If you remove the SRS fuse(s) it will disable the whole system.
Would be better to just disconnect the airbag connector(s), for the airbag you want to disable, which I do not recommend.

Your choice as it's not my butt in the seat.

Thanks!

Yeah, I just need to know what pulling the fuse will do. I don't mind pulling the steering wheel apart either. Just need an extra vehicle while the Si is limping. lol

I didn't check for what else may share the SRS fuses; what year is your RDX?
