Takata recall I was first notified by Ford of the recall in July 2015. I have been to the dealership twice to schedule the airbag replacement and each time I'm told they will have the part in 3 months. It's now been a year and a half. This issue is not being addressed in a timely fashion.

Takata recall I have been waiting for months to receive the "interim" replacement for my driver's side airbag, and I have felt unsafe in driving my vehicle since I first received notice of the takata airbag inflator. I've brought my truck (2005 Ford Ranger) into my local Ford dealership 3 separate times, and each time they've returned it to me without fixing anything because the part for the interim replacement has been on backorder. This is in houston, tx, so right in the middle of the priority region due to extremely high humidity. I have tried every possible avenue to get a loaner vehicle, by calling Ford customer care and my local Ford dealership (sterling mccall Ford in houston, tx). I know that Honda is issuing loaner vehicles, despite having many more models affected by this recall. It is clear that Honda cares more about its customers' safety than Ford, because Ford refuses to issue loaner vehicles for this recall. I refuse to drive my truck or allow my wife to drive my truck until the problem is fixed. This leaves me without a vehicle to drive. I urge NHTSA to put pressure on Ford to provide loaner vehicles, as Honda has done, to show that they actually care about their customers' safety.
