From an airbag glitch to a new clutch

So I finally took the Honda in to let the dealer check on a recall alert I got in the mail last week saying the trigger on the driver’s airbag was so faulty that it might cause injury or even death. Mine.

Nothing like the prospect of hanging to concentrate the mind.

Harmless, the dealer concluded after a brief check, but, oh, by the way…

They replaced the clutch for $1,500. If I didn’t know that I had a bad habit of resting my left foot on the clutch pedal (“riding the clutch,” it is called, though it was never this bad), I’d suspect the recall alert was a dodge all along.
