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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Takata recall - I have contacted criswell Acura in annapolis, md twice to schedule the recall repair; 8/10/2016, 9/6/2016. The first time I was told I would receive a return call to schedule an appointment and was never called back. The second time I was told to leave a message with jeanette is service, which I did, and once again did not receive a call back. It is now November and I have not been able to get my car repaired.

We have been trying to get Acura to act on this airbag recall, but we have been waiting since this past summer. We once lived a mere 20 minutes from a dealership, but now we have since moved where there is not a dealership within our state. It was arranged for a Honda dealership to assist us, but Acura has balked on assisting us with our 2.5 of travel time to the Honda dealership despite offering to pay for transportation costs or a rental car, but we continue to wait. We are driving dangerously with these damaged air bags that can cause death or serious injury, and Acura has been neglectful in their response and disingenuous in their want to assist.

I received recall notice 14V-351 regarding the replacement of the airbag. I contacted South coast Acura in costa mesa, ca and I was informed that the part would have to be ordered. Approximately 6 weeks later I called to find the status. I was informed that the parts had still not arrived. In addition, I called mission viejo Acura in mission viejo, ca to see if they had the parts available. Not only was I informed that the part was not available, but that replacement of the parts was higher priority in states with high humidity. I read the recall, and it says nothing about states with high humidity. I think I am being lied to by these Acura dealerships, and I would like to have my complaint investigated.the recall clearly says the defect could kill or injure people, and I don't believe Acura is taking sufficient measures to make sure the parts are available to ensure my safety.
