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. Acura notified us that our Acura Rdx was being recalled for air bag replacement in March 2016--see attached pdf of recall letter. We contacted marin Acura, the dealer which sold us the car, on the same day we received the letter to make a service appointment for the recall/airbag replacement. They notified us that the parts would not be available until "early summer". we have followed up frequently but have been consistently told parts are still not available with no estimate of availability. Marin Acura is generally responsive, funneling all calls to one service representative who is generally unavailable and does not return calls. The recall repair has not been made over 4 months later, and no assurance of future availability of replacement has been made. We are concerned about reports of injury or death risk, but Acura/marin Acura have taken no steps to resolve this matter and we are left in limbo.

Takata recall I spoke to the dealership who recommended that I stay in the vehicle as there is really nothing to worry about. That they are just being careful however there is no real need to stop driving my vehicle. They stated if I still feel uncomfortable, they will only offer alternate transportation but nothing close to the level of an Acura. If I want a luxury car that is comparable I will have to pay the difference myself. I do however have to continue to pay my lease for a car that I cannot drive. Acura is putting the complete burden on their customers and will not budge, or provide any additional help to remedy this unfortunate situation. I hope that there is something that can be done in a situation that leaves me wondering where there is justice for the consumer. I have to pay for their mistake? please help as I honestly feel completely cheated

Takata recall- purchased a 2015 Rdx in October. I asked if the airbag was a takata and was told that it was not. Today, I got a safety recall telling me that I cannot drive the car, it could kill me. I have also been told that the car will have to sit for at least 4 months until they can get the part to replace it, however I will still have to pay my almost $600 car payment.
