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" for the past year or so I have been attempting to get this issue resolve with my dealer only to have them tell me that parts are not available. This is causing me and my family stress and a hardship since this is the only vehicle I have. The dealer only tells me not to worry since there have been no incidents resulting in injury or death regarding this issue. My question to them is why then are all this parts being recalled. I feel that the passenger as well as the driver are being place in harms way. I have been told time again and again that maybe parts will be available and then again not in late December. Is this not gambling with one safety?

The airbag light comes on and off intermittently on the dashboard, it could happen while I'm driving or while I'm stationary. One day is lit the next day is off, I'm afraid this is a safety hazard because what if I get involved on an accident and the airbags dont function properly? I heard about a recall on these vehicles with similar symptoms as the ones I'm experiencing but dealer refuses to fix it unless I pay $600
