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 corporate Acura customer relations at 1-800-382-2238 option 4 and Acura annapolis Maryland dealer 443-482-3200 and have been given the run around and put in multiple voice mails with no call backs and I have explained multiple times that I have an Acura Rdx 2008 with a recalled airbag and noone has helped me as of 6/9/2016. Back in may of 2016, I called once I recovered from pneumonia and the corporate customer relations gave me a case number: 03496388 and instructed me to call the annapolis Acura dealer and ask to speak to the service manager which I did same day and I left two voice mails none of which were returned. Two days later, I called the service department at the annapolis dealer and the service technician said that only people in enterprise rental cars with the recall were being honored presently for the recall. I gave my case number and the technician found me in their system and supposedly was going to order the recall parts based on my case number. On 6/9/2016 I called the service department at annapolis dealer and the service technician said, oh well I really don't know what happened to your parts situation. I called back and asked to speak to the service manager again and they wanted to put me in his voice mail and I yelled back that I've already left him messages to call me which he has not done yet so why would I want to leave yet another message"! I asked to speak to the overall dealership manager and was informed oh he's not in. I called the corporate Acura customer relations gave them my case number and they transfered me to a department that informed me that they don't handle the recalls and that they would have to transfer me to the right department. I yelled again, what is going on"! I am being given the run around with a dangerous recall still unresolved. These people are going to kill me.
