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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Takata recall on passenger side air bag. After contacting the nearest dealer, they informed me the parts were not in stock. Called back several time between May 2015 and February 2016 and the parts are still not in stock. Looking for help with this situation. What is my next step. Nothing has happened with the air bag yet. Just trying to get the repairs done before something does.
