From Honda Website: Statement by American Honda Motor Co., Inc., Regarding Passenger Airbag Recall: 2010 Accord Crosstour
09/14/2010 - TORRANCE, Calif.
Honda will recall 3,336 2010 model year Accord Crosstour vehicles in the U.S. to inspect and potentially replace the front passenger airbag. Recent testing revealed that certain front passenger airbag modules installed in a limited number of 2010 Accord Crosstours do not meet one aspect of a U.S. federal regulation (FMVSS 208) that requires airbag deployment to be tested using an unbelted six year-old child-sized test dummy in the front seating area. No incidents or injuries have been reported related to this issue. (In many states, six year old children are not allowed to ride in a vehicle's front seat, and Honda specifically recommends that children age 12 and under ride properly restrained in a vehicle's back seat.)
Honda is announcing this recall to encourage all owners of affected vehicles to take their Accord Crosstour to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of this recall from Honda so their front passenger airbag can be inspected and, if necessary, replaced. Notification to customers will begin on September 22, 2010.
When Honda identifies concerns of this nature, nothing is more important to the company than fulfilling our obligation and responsibility to alert our customers. To this end in addition to contacting customers by mail, after September 22, owners of these vehicles can determine if their vehicle requires inspection by going on-line or calling Honda. Honda owners can go to www.recalls.honda.com or call (800) 999-1009, and select option 4.
Received my recall notice today. I have an appointment for Monday, (9/27). I guess they examine the air bag if its OK your on your way in 30 minutes. If you need another air bag, they keep your CT overnight and give you a loner at no charge.

You just put your VIN# in and it will tell you if there are any recalls. This link brings you to the Ownerslink. You can sign up there and keep all of your mtc and car records in there, i.e., codes for your radio, Nav, etc.
You can sign up for Honda Crosstour owner site for your car maintenance, records, and can see if any recall comes around. I used it yesterday to schedule oil change with no phone calls etc. Also tells you about the car you bought: VIN number, specs, XM code, and such...hope this 1st thread and not redundant, if so then sorry about that chief.
