humidity is what causes the air bag components to degrade.

Yeah... Tell us about it...

Hmmm, so I have a 2005 Acura TL and have no idea if the original airbag was ever replaced. I will have to check the VIN tonight, but I doubt the recall will show up in the database.

FWIW, my wife's 2007 Acura RDX does not show up in the database when I entered her VIN either. Do I have to just wait until Honda's database is updated before I can call to make an appointment? This just seems silly. She's about 5 months pregnant with our first child right now, so I'm in protective Dad mode

dealer won't do anything about it until your VIN# show up in the recall campaign, back in 2012 I knew the ps hose was on recall on every TL and yet during an oil change my dealer said "its not on the list" only a month later I come back with the recall letter.

I take it that you're not the original owner of the TL? If not, a call to the dealer with your VIN# should be able to confirm if the driver's side inflator was ever replaced. It should (yeah, I know) also show up on a carfax report. Unless your TL was in a front end accident prior to you owning it, I doubt that it was ever replaced and therefore your TL won't be on this recall list.(Your TL was not on the original recall list).

For the RDX, 2007 models were on the original recall, so your RDX should also be on this recall...

I am the second owner of the 2005 Acura TL. However, I'm 99% sure that it was never in a front end collision where the airbag would have to be replaced. I will need to call the dealership to confirm. However, as the 04-06 TLs were not on the original recall list, it looks like I will be safe. Whew....

The bigger concern is my wife's 2007 Acura RDX though
