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. I'm in Florida. I got my recall letter in July. I called Ford in October. They said it takes time. Ford asked how many miles were on my truck. Is Ford trying to run out the clock at consumers expense" how many more have to die"

Takata recall takata appears to be bankrupt and the air bag in my pickup has not been available to replace. By the time a replacement is available from the bankrupt supplier the vehicle will be obsolete. NHTSA mandates the use of air bags in vehicles therefore NHTSA should bear responsibility in this matter.

"takata recall" notice of recall received July 2016. Contacted Ford for repair was told parts are not available until the fall of 2016. Called Ford service October 12, 2016 and was told parts for repair would not be available until the fall of 2017. So passengers are at risk? this is unreasonable!

Can you please let me know when parts will be available" this is a 2011 and it is a safety concern. So for this to be a recall and put customers at risk for years even though we know there is a recall is disappointing. This should be top priority. When will there be a remedy"
