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. The car was recalled almost a year ago for the drivers side airbag. It took several months for Ford to notify me that parts were available. Once fixed (approx 3"months ago) I was told that the passenger side was also recalled but there was no fix. I tried to trade the car in about 2 weeks ago and was told that they were unable to take the car in on trade because there is still no fix and Ford would not allow the resell the car.

It's been at least a year and a half on this recall and I've gotten letters saying parts are available yet I call mcmullen Ford and they do not have them and I've gotten my Honda CRV fixed and it had only 6 months and they ordered the part to install in my vehicle specifically. Now why can't a part be held for a specific vehicle at the Ford dealership?

Takata recall 13 months to repair drivers side, had to drive to Florida to effect that repair. Passenger side over 90 days, no response, no repair. Will I have to drive to Florida again if I want this fixed before another year has passed?

Takata inflators for the past 12 months, neither Ford corporate hq or our local Ford dealer has agreed to replace the faulty takata airbag inflators. Both refuse to return phone calls, and after being forced to stay on hold for upwards of 30 minutes, refuse to put us on a list or provide any information, beginning in July 2015.

This complaint is about the recall process on my son's Mustang. Ford sent us notice last year and nothing has been done as the dealer repeatly told they don't have the part yet. If the situation can cause injury, I would expect priority to be placed on replacement parts.
