Takata recall. I have been waiting for a remedy airbag for vehicle since July of 2016. It is now January of 2017. That is 6 months of driving this vehicle every day knowing that I am at risk as well as my family, this is outrageous takata needs to be held accountable for this and hurry up to get a fix. Also, not to mention the fact that this airbag has been a serious hazard for all the years I've owner this truck and I didn't even know it.
