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.

Takata recall, Ford recall 16S26. I received a letter from the Ford Motor Company on Saturday, 07-23-2016 about safety recall notice 16S26. This notice identified that the frontal airbag inflator may rupture in the event of a crash necessitating airbag deployment. A "ruptured inflator may result in metal fragments stricking vehicle occupants causing serious injury or death". I have called san tan Ford, gilbert, AZ 85295 (customer service/james rubio, service mgr. Gene babb) and basically was told that they do not have the new passenger frontal airbag inflator replacement and do not know when they will receive this replacement assembly/part. No answers on a Ford recall that could result in serious injury or death. I called Ford at 1-866-436-7332 and was connected with a Ford rep. In the philippines who gave me the same ridiculous answer as was provided by san tan Ford. Nobody seems to get the basic idea that I am driving a low mileage 2007 Fusion (that I bought new from san tan Ford) that is a "imminent death trap" and won't and/or can't do anything about the recall. Please help me immediately to obtain a free passenger frontal airbag inflator replacement per safety recall notice 16S26. Thanks, robert M. zastawny 1835 S. morrison ln. Gilbert, AZ 85295, tel.# 480-940-4531.

The dash on the passenger air bag protruded out several months ago. I can see the airbag in the gap from where the dash has stuck out. With the and humid weather in Tennessee this last weeks, it appears the protrusion is getting worse. I have seen several complaints on this issue. My car is on the recall for the takata inflators issues and Ford needs to have a recall and determine how to correct dash from protruding. I am very very very concerned with any passengers in my car and for myself if the air bag explodes and if no one is injured I am concerned if I can driving the exploding air bag could cause me to have an accident. Please look into this issues. I know Ford did change the dash design in all newer vehicles. Thank you very much for your time. Please look into this dash-airbag issue.

My passenger side dash had begun to bulge. They stated it was O.K. and I did not need to worry about the airbag deploying.they told me that it could not be fixed; and no one recommended how to fix it. The bulge has gotten worse and it looks as if the airbag is going to deploy. My airbag light came on shortly after and I can not pass inspection

My passenger airbag is bowed. It just started recently, in the last few weeks. I called Ford and they said my VIN isn't on the list, but I have all the symptoms of this issue. I was told to go directly to the dealership since it was so unsafe, but the dealership turned me away. Basically I was told the passenger air bag can deploy and shoot shrapnel at passengers. Called Ford and they said for safety reasons I should take it in right away. Ford called the closest dealership and they turned me away because my VIN isn't on the list. The recall is now, however, so it could still be added. In the meantime, I'm driving around in a car that could throw shrapnel at my face and neck at any moment. My VIN needs to be added to this list so I can drive safely. Bob rohrman Ford in schaumburg il turned me away and wouldn't help. They were very rude and had no common sense

Airbag light came on at about 85,000 miles. Occurred after starting up after being parked facing the wind on a very windy day. Took to dealer, needs new rcm module. Was told no airbags would deploy until replaced. Apparently it is very expensive repair for something that concerns safety of the vehicle.

The passenger side air bag quit working. The air bag warning light came on and would not go off. Do not know if automobile was moving or still. Had to have replace the inboard and outboard seat zero weight sensors, rail assembly and replace the passenger seat air bag module. It was very expensive for a part of the car that should last more than 54000 miles.

I took my 2007 Ford Fusion to a dealership in regards to my passenger side dash had begun to bulge in the beginning of the year. They stated it was O.K. and I did not need to worry about the airbag deploying. I asked them how much would it be to fix it and they told me that it could not be fixed; and no one recommended how to fix it. The bulge has gotten worse and it looks as if the airbag is going to deploy. I took it back to the dealership on August 19, 2015 and was told that they does not fix cosmetic work or trim.

The air bag light came on and stayed on. I took it to the local Ford dealership. The service rep said that the passenger seat air bag sensor was defective. He said that there were no recalls and it would cost me $868 to fix it. I can't afford it so we're driving it with the light on. I think Ford should replace it because many people have the same or similar problem with their Fusion as well as a host of other makes makes, models, and years....updated 09/22/15
