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" - rec'd recall notice March 2016 from Acura indicating airbags would become available summer 2016. Called macchurchill Acura dealer July 20, 2016 to schedule appt and advised they would place an order for airbag but takes 3 to 6 months to receive. Obviously airbags were not available as their March letter indicated. As of this date, Oct 13, 2016, an airbag still not available and I am forced to drive with a possible deadly airbag. Their offer of rental does not qualify as an acceptable replacement. I am not satisfied with Acura's handling of my airbag and can't believe this would be acceptable time table for any such recall. I would appreciate any help or pressure you can provide on getting an airbag for my car. Thank you, [xxx] (Acura's safety recall: Campaign #JY2 / service bulletin # 16-010) information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

I have a 2013 Acura Rdx. I was notified sometime between April and June that my vehicle was going to recalled to replace one or more air bags. I have tried a number of times since then to request the replacement but have been told that the part was not available. I am very concerned about this issue because I am on blood thinner and an injury from a defective air bag could easily be life threatening to me. I am trying to find someone to help me get this replacement since Acura does not seem interested. I would appreciate any help you can provide. My name is robert R hawkins, my address is 200 jefferson ave, metairie, la 70005, and my phone is 504-837-4074 or 504-473-3300. Thank you.
