Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

"takata recall" I received a notice in March and spoke with the dealership, both said I would be notified when parts were available in late summer. On 10/21/16 I called my dealership to find out the status because I hadn't heard anything else. I was told oh we have the parts come in whenever you want. Why wasn't I notified. I've been driving an unsafe car for 2 years and wondering about the airbag for 7 months. This is completely unacceptable.

Takata recall: In March 2016, we have received notification letter from Acura motor company regarding the recall and the danger of driving our Acura vehicle, VIN # [xxx], due to takata airbag inflator recalls. Accordingly we contacted the dealership office located 1600 soldiers field rd, brighton, MA 02135 in the same month (end of March 2016), to get the vehicle fixed or to request a replacement vehicle until your organization fix the vehicle and make it safe to drive again. The above mentioned dealership office offered us to take a loaner or rental vehicle free of charge under the condition that we have to keep both vehicle with us until they fix the Acura. We explain to the dealership office that since we leave in boston metropolitan area, we don't have extra or additional parking space to keep both vehicles. Therefore, we requested Acura motor company to keep the Acura until it is fixed and give us the loaner or rental car. Unfortunately the dealership office declined to do so. Since the recall in March 2016, we have parked the vehicle without any use. This is ; therefore, to file complaint regarding the subject.

I am seriously concerned about my safety driving my Acura. I got a safety recall notice from the manufacturer during the month on February, 2016 with multiple calls being placed the manufacturer has no fixed date in resolving the problem. With the safety recall I wasn't able to sell my vehicle since it is defective and there was no solution provided by the manufacturer. Even after multiple calls Acura client relations didn't respond properly and they were not very helpful in resolving my issues. I would kindly request NHTSA to kindly look into the issue and direct Acura accordingly.

This is the vehicle air bag that could rupture with potential life threatening injury to me or my passenger. This is a leased vehicle owned by Acura not me and no parts will be available until end of summer. You can have this car back and put me in a new lease never mind giving me a rental car to drive around in and continue to make my lease payments on a vehicle I am not even driving in seriously.

So as I understand, this recall is a fix that needs to be done, or in the event of the airbags deploying, there is a chance of a life threatening injury...being I work for toshiba medical and I sell equipment that could be a danger to patients and I understand the recall. In my case at toshiba, if a recall comes from the fda, we need to shut down the system until the fix is made. Even if it's less than 1% it gets close up!! seems that you are willing to let the car be driven until the replacement parts are available. This is unacceptable!! this is a leased car and the lease is up in November of this year. You own this car not I. I will be more than happy to return the car as is and you terminate the lease. Legally Acura has a large risk knowing the airbags are faulty but have no fix... please let me know your next steps.... thanks in advance... information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6)......updated 04/12/16
