Default Honda airbag problems

With all the recent news about possible malfunctioning of Honda airbags,
I wonder how could one know how the airbags would behave in older
Accords in case of accidents. Would they even deploy or if they did,
would they expell hard metallic shards as well? I don't know of
any way to find this out without experiencing actual accidents.

Well getting a recall notice is one way.
I just got one for my 12 1/2 year old Civic.

Other than that check your VIN at (assuming you are in the USA)

Thanks. I did look up by VIN and got back:
There are no current safety recalls for this vehicle.

But iy also told me:
To find out more Honda recall information, you may also contact your
local Honda dealer.

I suppose my dealer would have notified me already if there was anything
serious amiss.
