UnFIT for Shorties

Honda recalling 34,300 of its sub-compact

If you’re a proud baby-momma/daddy and drive a 2007-08 Honda Fit, read up cause this is important. Over 34,000 Fits are being recalled for a faulty sensor designed to detect child seats or out-of-position passengers. In wintery states, salt water from melting snow on a driver’s boots can leak beneath the carpet and corrode the wires for the Occupant Detection System (ODS). With that connection disabled, the passenger’s front and side airbags will go off even if a child is in the front seat. The recall is now in effect for cars sold or registered in the following states: Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia. Get that looked at- they ain’t gonna charge you!
