Honda piles on the exploding airbag recall, Chrysler retires an icon and man in Europe retires his brand new Fiat.

FOX News Radio’s Jeff Monosso reports: 

It’s FOX Wheels.

Honda adds several vehicles including ’03 to ’05 Accords, ’01 to ’05 Civics — to the list of vehicles being recalled in 13 states, because of faulty airbags caused apparently by high humidity. Nine other automakers in the U.S. also recalling Takata airbags. To find out if your vehicle’s involved, check with your car maker.


A man in Italy so tired of unreliable public transportation and of being late to work — snapped, and took a hatchet to his brand new Fiat 500 when it wouldn’t start, making him late, again; the soul reason he bought the now totaled car.

Consumer Reports just named the Fiat the most unreliable car brand on the market.


And, after merging with Fiat — Chrysler is quietly saying goodbye to the iconic Pentastar, the symbol that’s graced Chryslers for over five decades. Chrysler also announcing a stronger third quarter, up 18 percent from a year ago.
