BRISTOL, ENGLAND – OCTOBER 06: Honda cars are offered for sale on the forecourt of a main motor car dealer in Brislington on October 6, 2015 in Bristol, England. Latest data from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) show a record 462,517 new cars were registered in the UK last month, a 8.6% year on year increase, and that total sales in the year to date have hit 2,096,886, 7.1 percent higher than the same point last year and the first time the two million mark has been passed in September since 2004. The figures also showed a slight drop in the levels of drivers choosing diesel-engined cars, claimed in part to be due to the scandal that has surrounded Volkswagen and the disclosure that they cheated emissions tests on their diesel cars.

Honda is recalling more than 750,000 vehicles over a faulty airbag sensor.
The issue is a weight sensor in the front passenger seat that’s designed to disable the airbags if children are in the seat. The NHTSA says the sensor can crack and fail, which can lead to the airbag triggering when it’s not supposed to and causing injury.
Owners can have the sensor replaced at a dealer at no cost.
Over a dozen Honda and Acura models are part of the recall. Affected owners will be notified beginning March 18th.
Have you ever been in a car when the airbag inflated? What did it feel like?
