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.

Received recall notice dated January 2015 requiring air bag inflator replacement. Called to make appointment for recall repair but parts are not available to dealer. Was told it would take approximately 3 weeks for parts to come in but still not available to dealer. It is now 19 March 2015 and still no parts. Am concerned about safety of air bag deployment.

I have been trying since before February 12 to get the recalled airbags fixed, but 2 dealers have told me the parts are on back order until "some time in April." I keep getting repeat letters warning me that the faulty airbags "could kill or injure you or other people in your vehicle, " and the letters state there can be "provision of, or reimbursement for, temporary alternative transportation, as necessary." But both Honda dealers I've contacted have refused to provide this alternative. My 2003 Honda CRV is my only car; thus, it's my only means of transportation.

My problem is that after I got the recall information the local dealership has not been able to get the parts to fix the problem. How long do the companies have to get the parts to the dealers?the recall letter came out in January. It is now the middle of March.

I first called coral springs automall, coral springs, fl 33071 about replacing the airbags in my vehicle (due to a recall) on October 22, 2014. I spoke to a woman who did not identify herself, who seemed reluctant to help, and was told someone would call me back. After waiting three days, on October 25 my husband called again. He spoke to dexter, who promised he would call back when the parts were in stock within 7 to 10 days. Again there was no return call. So my husband called again on November 11. This time dexter said that the parts "could be on back order for two months." When questioned about the safety concerns of driving with these demonstrably dangerous airbags, distressing because there is regularly a baby in the car, dexter advised that the airbag fuse be removed until the situation was remedied. Once more we received no phone calls from the dealership. Thus another call was made on January 06, 2015. My husband again spoke to dexter, who repeated that he would call back in 7 to 10 days. Predictably, no one called. Another call was placed by my husband on January 15. This time, at last, dexter made an appointment for January 23. On the 23rd, the driver side airbag was replaced, and we were told that the parts for the passenger side were unavailable (no further explanation). They would need to be ordered. I don't comprehend how it is that after months of waiting for these parts, and being forced to drive in an unsafe vehicle, this dealership is still unable to fix the problem--despite making an appointment to do just that. The problems do not subside from here. Today, January 27, I went back to the dealership to address the fact that the cover on the driver side airbag was not attached. Once again, I was told that the passenger airbag parts were on order and no time frame for completion was offered.
