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 replacement not available per dealer; I requested passenger side air bag be disconnected and dealer refused; NHTSA should require dealers to disconnect when it is known these bags can kill you until replacements are provided; also I have 3 spots of rust on my hood and one where rusted all the way threw metal

The front passenger airbag inflator housing may rupture while deploying during a crash. The potential for such ruptures may occur in some of the subject airbag inflators after several years of exposure to persistent conditions of high absolute humidity and/or heat aging.

Takata recall I am a very safe and cautious driver. I am concerned now that I have received this recall notice two months ago and there is no remedy as of yet. I am worried all the time now while driving that someone is going to cause an accident and I will be involved. This is a very scary thing to have defective and I want it fixed asap! also there are so many vehicles out there with this recall too!! I am not comfortable and do not feel safe anymore in my vehicle. Let us get this fixed!
