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 - dealership notified on July 20th, 2016 and as of September 23, my replacement part has not arrived. (cerritos Acura, ca). I called customer relations and they will forward loaner car request to case manager to possibly supply a loaner car. My complaint to your Agency is that I have not had full use of my car for over 2 months now, and there is no expected date in sight. I have elderly parents that I drive them and two toddler children I drive to school. I bought a 4-door sedan to drive my family and am being denied that. Please put more pressure, demands, fines to Acura to solve the problem. Thank you!!!

The recall was issued May 2016. Passengers not allowed in front seat. Remedy still not available. It is September, 14, 2016. I have children and need the seating. My children are catching the bus, or I am borrowing vehicles. It is absolutely imperative we receive a loaner car

Takata recall - I recieved notification on July 17th, 2016 about a recall for my 2010 Acura Tsx. I immediately called the dealer for an appointment, I was put on a waiting list for parts and was told it would take 90-120 days for parts. I then requested a different vehicle to drive which was denied. I carpool in my car every day, yet the Acura recall notice instructs me not to use the passenger seat. This is not practical and parts should be made available sooner or a different car provided.

On the afternoon of June 19th I arrived at my destination, put the vehicle in park and was sitting in my car with the engine running when the dash indicator read "check airbag system". I continued to gather my things, when suddenly the airbags deployed, hitting my left arm and momentarily deafening my hearing. The car had not been impacted or jarred in any way that may have caused the airbags to deploy. The next morning I drove the car to Acura and they initially said they would repair it. A week or so later they claimed the computer indicated the car had been in a collision yet there was no visible damage. Clearly the vehicle had a defective sensor yet they refused to take responsibility. They wanted me to file a claim with my insurance company for repairs. I was asked to return the loaner they had issued me and take possession of my car. They were willing to send me off in an unsafe car with the deployed airbags hanging! I reluctantly opened a claim with my insurance company which was subsequently denied because there was no collision. My insurance company suggested I sue american Honda. A couple of days later american Honda made a "goodwill gesture" by agreeing to repair my vehicle. They still refuse to acknowledge that the vehicle may have had a defective sensor. Over a month later I will finally be getting my car back yet I'm a bit nervous at the thought that it may happen again and possibly while I'm driving. I register this complaint for any future incidences.
