Takata recall - I never received a notification that I had a recall on my airbags - I will be looking into this shortly -- also, and more importantly, my engine stalls after I refuel -- there is no recall on this issue but apparently it happens a lot as I did see that there was an inquiry into this -- this just started to happen to my car in the last 2 years and so therefore it is out of warranty.

Takata recall - I have been waiting several months to get my driver side air bags changed. I live in Florida and it is very hot and humid. My car is 10 years old and I am over 60 years ago. I am scared to drive the car until I can get this changed. I had to get the passenger side done and waited a very long time until I contacted you and you helped push it through. I am hoping you can help me again as I am getting tired of contacting the dealership myself. Thank you so much.

"takata recall" I received notification of safety recall S43 July 23rd and to date dealer still has no parts. This does not seem to me to be acceptable when possible injury may occur. And I do not understand why both sides were not done last year when the drivers side recall came up. Chrysler Corp. Should care more for their customers safety. I sure hope we do not experience a problem before recall gets done..it could be costly.

While traveling on us 33 West bound in marysville Ohio, just in front of exit Honda parkway around 6 am, traffic came to a stop, as I was slowing down, estimating around 50 mph (70 speed limit), the car behind me crashed into the the rear of my car, after collision I responded by trying to steer my car to left, but hit the car in front of me. All three cars involved in the crash were totaled. The rear impact shattered the rear window and significant damage occurred to the rear of my car and also the front from the forward collision. The vehicle's airbags did not deploy, I hit my head on the steering wheel, and suffered from a diagnosed concussion as well as a severe strain to my neck. One year ago, I had taken my vehicle to a Dodge dealer to get the airbag replaced due to a recall. Considering this, I reached out to Dodge and they assigned a case number to the incident. It has now been four weeks, since I have contracted them, and Dodge is yet to respond to my issue. I have called several times each week, following up on the case but has not contacted me our provided me with any information. Dodge has claimed to have attempted to reach out to me, but cited an issue with having wrong number, even as I have confirmed / verified my contact information every time I have contacted them.

Has anyone else had issues with their brakes seeming to lock up and airbag light in dash coming on after R25 recall repair"??? dealer refuses to address these problems without me paying for diagnositics to be run first & I don't have $100+ to pay out of pocket. These issues started the day I drove it home after getting the recall repaired...... help?!?!! I paid for new brakes bc I figured it could be strictly coincidence, but the light & beeping too?!" no way!!!!
