This complaint is in regard to recall R03/NHTSA 14V-373. I have had this car since 2013 and have had several recall notices and I have called my local dealership to schedule an appointment. They stated that the parts have not arrived and that until they did, it couldn't be repaired. This has been several months ago and no word has been received to schedule an appointment. Now we have a new recall number about the same problem and they still haven't called. The vehicle has an intermittent problem with starting, so far, it eventually starts but I know it is just a matter of time before it leaves me or my wife stranded. I would hate to see what would happen if it switched from on to accessory and lost all power going down the road. I don't know who is at fault, the dealership or the manufacturer, but I feel this has not be handled in a reasonable time and is also a serious safety risk.
