To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Honda Recalls More CR-V Models, Ninth Takata Airbag Death Confirmed

Honda recalled 127,000 more cars to replace passenger frontal airbags, as a ninth death related to the exploding Takata airbag recalls has been identified.

-

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration confirmed that a teenage driver in a 2001 Honda Accord coupe died several days after a crash near Pittsburgh in July. The teen’s death, which came to light after the family’s lawyer notified the agency, is the eighth recorded in the United States. A pregnant woman died from airbag-inflator shrapnel in Malaysia last year. All of the deaths have involved Hondas. More than 100 people have been injured across a variety of car models.

Honda said it was recalling 127,000 more CR-Vs from 2003–2004 to replace the passenger airbags. A small number of 2016 CR-V models were also recalled for driver airbags last month. Subaru and Mazda are expected to recall more 2005–2008 models, NHTSA said, including the Outback, Legacy, and 6. Honda—Takata’s largest customer, which also owns a 1.2-percent stake in the Japanese supplier—said last month it would stop purchasing Takata airbags altogether. Shortly after Honda’s announcement, Nissan, Toyota, Mazda, and Ford confirmed they would also cut all airbag contracts with Takata, which agreed to pay a $70 million civil penalty and undergo monitoring by U.S. regulators.
