I have been getting reports of a recall on this airbag since 2016. And I scheduled to be informed when the parts came in, in order to have it fixed. But when I had asked on another recall that had to be taken place, they said that it was never submitted. It was and I had just checked, it has been submitted to be notified when parts came in September 2016. I just need to get it fixed, and I've been waiting 4 months and told there was no recall on the car when in reality I had submitted one. So im not sure where to go with this

The recall for the passenger airbag inflator was issued on July 1, 2016. It is now December 5, 2016 and there is still no remedy. It is unsafe to drive the vehicle and I am paying for a vehicle that can't be driven. I would like to be put into a new vehicle.

This vehicle was in perfect operational conditions prior to the repairs regarding the takata inflators. Immediately following this repair, I have replaced the battery on two separate occasions. A completely charged battery will discharge overnight. After a complete diagnostic evaluation by Dodge dealership, they found no problems with vehicle. In the 12-days following this diagnostic, I have charged the battery twice. I am really concerned that an electrical defect, as a result of the dealership repairs, may contribute to an electrical fire or a possible explosive concern. I am concerned for the safety of my self, as well as my family. This has been an on-going concern for approximately 6-months.
