Takata recall: Was notified of parts availability in Aug 1015. Went to dealer on Sept 8, 2015 and was put on a waiting list. Was told it would be about 6 months. Called today (Mar 4, 2016) and was told I was #107 on the waiting list and it may be as ling as a year until they can get to me. Are they playing the attrition game and hoping something will happen so they will not have to do this recall" I also asked them to disable the airbag in the interest of my personal safety which they refused to do. Is there anything that can be done to speed this process"
