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 I got a recall notice in July of 2016. Since that time I have called 2 local dealers and Ford directly. None of the people I spoke with has any information available as to when this defect is to be repaired. Since this defect is from takata and involves the passenger side airbag, my wife is reluctant to ride with me in the passenger seat. All I get from these people is wait wait, wait. I am tired of waiting. Can you help me get this resolved.

I was notified in July 2016 of the airbag recall on my 2007 Ford Ranger. The Ford correspondence said I'd be contacted when parts became available. I waited. It's now November, 4 months later and no contact. I have tried to reach out to Ford but alas, their July letter has no contact information other than a owner.Ford.com/takata web page. I can't find anything on the web page about the recall. Plenty to buy another vehicle etc, but nothing about a recall. Indeed while I'm typing this, I'm waiting for someone to come to an on-line chat about this subject. It's been 20 minutes. I've been minimizing use of this vehicle as I often have my young son with me on outings but I do have to use it sometimes with him and am becoming ever more concerned that it's just a matter of time until there is a disaster and we become another statistic with these takata air bags. Help!!! what do I do" who do I contact"

Takata recall so there is no remedy for this recall. Called a Ford dealership they said they dont know when one will become availabe. I asked them what Ford is doing for its customers seeing as the air bags if deployed could kill you or serious injury. Their simple response was wait on the remedy. But GM had a massive recall they supplied customers with either a rental car until the remedy became available or traded them out of the vehicles they were in. Really Ford nothing to protect yourselves or your "customers"!!!
