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 contacted two dealerships, bot said they would have the part in this summer and would call me when the part was available. Two letters from Acura stated that the part would be available this summer; yet, I have not received a notification from either dealership and my airbags have not yet been replaced.

Takata recall. The contact owns a 2015 Acura Ilx. The contact received notification of NHTSA campaign number: 16V061000 (air bags) however, the part needed to repair the vehicle was unavailable. The contact stated that the manufacturer exceeded a reasonable amount of time for the recall repair. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The contact had not experienced a failure. VIN tool confirms parts unavailable.

Was told by my aura dealer that my vehicle was unsafe to drive in May 2016. It has been parked in my garage since that time, awaiting parts to repair or replace the takata airbag. I leased the car in December 2014, and was not told of the recall until May 2016, nor was I told that the car had a takata airbag when I entered into the lease. For a period of 18 months, anyone of my family driving the car would have been endangered if the airbags were deployed. I requested a moratorium on lease payments from Acura leasing, until the car was driveable, which they refused to do. I asked the dealer, napleton Acura to swap out the car/lease for another car/lease without the airbag problems, which they would not do without a significant monetary penalty. The takata airbags have been a problem dating back to 2001 for Honda, and 2003 for Acura so this is a long standing issue. I don't understand why your Agency allows Acura & Honda to continue to sell vehicles with takata airbags especially in high humidity locales such as Florida, where I live. Your Agency seems to be protecting the car manufacturers and related dealers at the expense of the public that you are supposed to be protecting. Ironically an airbag is a safety component, not one that exposes the driver to serious injury or death. At this point, I would like to give the car back to Acura, and terminate the lease without penalty.

I would like to know about compensation for having my vehicle sit in my parking lot for 2 to 6 months and I'm paying my car payment and I'm not driving my car, if I want to drive another car other than my Acura I would purchase that, now I'm driving a rental they turned off all the features, no explanation. I think I should at least get reimburse for my car note ate least half. I don't think it is fair for me not having my luxury car to drive didn't even get to enjoy my car haven't even driven my car for 6 months got my car in late Oct 2015 & Feb recall something needs to be done about this. Thank you

Takata recall. The contact owns a 2015 Acura Ilx. The contact received notification of NHTSA campaign number: 16V061000 (air bags). The manufacturer indicated on the interim notification that the parts would not be available until mid summer 2016. The contact was unable to determine when the second notification letter would be mailed indicating that the parts would become available. The contact had not experienced a failure. VIN tool confirms parts not available.
