For god's sake. Is this a separate issue to the airbag recall?

Hello

 

Story so far:

 

My HONDA fit ARIA sedan 2004 is affected by the recall.  Got a letter from NZTA

 

Got the driver side airbag replaced last October by Honda CHCH.   Cannot do the passenger side as there were no spares.  Honda will inform when they become available

 

Check today and no spares yet.

 

 

 

My WOF is due in Feb 2020 and after learning that it will fail my warrant I dug deeper!

 

Mechanic says that I need to get it replaced if I wait until Feb 2020 or get the WOF done now before the deadline of 31 Dec 2019

 

 

 

Called 0800Honda and was told that compulsory recall is for the TAKATA Alpha airbags and only voluntary for non-Alpha air bags. 

 

My driver side Alpha was replaced fulfilling the compulsory requirement from NZTA, but the passenger side airbag is a non-Alpha airbag so it will pass a WOF if I wait until Feb 2020.

 

This is inline with the NZTA info on website https://www.nzta.govt.nz/media-releases/vehicles-to-fail-wof-inspections-for-takata-alpha-airbags-from-early-2020/

 

My predicament is do the WOF now OR  wait until its next due in Feb 2020 on the word from Honda that it will pass the WOF

 

Any enlightenment will be appreciated.

 

Thanks

This vehicle was not imported in to NZ by Honda. Unfortunately, we cannot confirm online if this is a complete list of oustanding recalls. Please contact us on 0800 246 632 for further assistance.

Hi Jase

 

Thanks.   I have used it before and it says :NO ALPHA RECALL FOUND"   

 

I am assuming that the vehicle register has been updated after the Alpha bag was replaced in Oct.   Wish I had looked it up before 

 

getting it replaced.

I have decided to wait until Feb 2020 when the WOF is due

 

Honda says that I could come to them for a WOF if the mechanic is hesitant. Maybe costs more from the dealership! specially if

 

parts needs to replaced etc.  

 

cheers and have a great holiday break guys
