Received notice of loss of air bag and seat belt pretensioner deployment in a crash. Repairs made to the suspension, tyi-rod totaling over $1000 in repairs and loss of a car so could not make it to work. This car iis not safe and I am not comfortable driving it with these known recalls. I believe I should be given a safe, camparable replacement. Why am I asked to place my life at risk as well as any one that would accompany me in my car" I am requesting a full refund or a new car. While making a turn on a circle, I car completely spun around. A truck was behind me and I was lucky that time but who knows about the next time???"

I own a 2011 Dodge Caliber with a recall for loss of air bag and set belt pretensioner deployment capability. I do not want to drive my car due to this safety issue in addition to having children in my car. I cannot even get a reasonable trade offer due to this. I am told that the parts my not be available until June 16, 2016. This is a serious danger to my family and a huge financial loss for trade in. Dealerships should at least give maximum trade for this vehicle and they can wait for the repair parts until they can sell it rather than put the public at risk and financial loss due to the lower value of trade to to this situation.

I was made aware of safety recall S61/ NHTSA 16V-668 via mail on Monday the 21st and have made multiple calls and emails to the Fiat Chrysler automotive company. As of right now there is no firm eta for the repair as parts are not available or in existence yet. They think January but are not sure. I do not consider 45days a "reasonable time" to wait for a safety fix for a vehicle. They have offered to reimburse me for a rental but I am not in a position where I can put out $1,200 per month and await to be paid back for the next several months.

There is currently a recall regarding the airbag not deploying in case of a crash. I was in a head on accident in 2014 and I had wondered why my airbag didn't deploy. Is there a monetary compensation for companies whos airbags don't work due to a proven technical problem?
