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. Slow response. I contacted my dealer (huggins Honda, N. richland hills, tx) on April 12, 2016 for an appointment. They "do not have the parts." They have failed to remedy the defect within a reasonable period (60 days from the date I officially contacted them for an appointment.) what should I do? please advise. Thank you.

Takata recall -- dealer does not get parts for recall repairs. Needs incentive to make this a priority. Received a notice in the mail in March/April 2016 saying that my car was subject to the takata recall, the required parts were on backorder and would be in June 2016. The beginning of June 2016, I called open road Honda in Edison and was told that they were waiting for parts and I would be called shortly. * I received an email from cnn with an urgent message saying that the recent airbag recall was a serious life safety issue to drivers and passengers -- more serious than originally thought --and the cars should not be driven. June 30th, 2016, I called open road Honda in Edison and was told that the parts were on backorder and would be in 3 weeks. I explained that I had received the notice in the mail in April/June, called in early June, received a cnn email and was very concerned about the safety issue. The Honda dealer said that they placed the order for the parts. They told me that a lot of people were involved and there was nothing they could do. July 21, 2016, I called open road Honda in Edison again and was told that the parts were on backorder and they had no idea when they would be in. The manager [xxx] was unable to help me, had no idea when the parts would arrive, and hung up on me. The manager and dealer do not seem to care at all about life safety. They do not think this is their problem. Education is needed. They need an incentive to get the cars fixed. Can you please assist with information on what I can do to get this car fixed asap. I want to know when the parts will be available so I can have the car fixed and have it be safe. Thank you for your courtesies.

Air bag light came on. Brought to Honda and was charged a diagnose fee and was informed that I would have to pay most of the cost of replacement. Did not repair at the time and the light went off a few days later. Now recall was issued for air bags in March 2016.

Takata recall April 8th I brought my car into Honda for a repair due to the recall, received a rental. July 13th ray price Honda serviced the car and fixed the drivers side air bag July 17th the car was ready for pick up and I was informed that the passenger side airbag was not fix and the part would not be in till a later date. *** this was not communicated to me until my drivers side was fixed and ray price told me I had to turn in the rental vehicle per Honda and bring the car back into service at a later date July 17th I called Honda and reported the problem. I stated that I am extremely upset and that it is unacceptable to be given a vehicle that is malfunctioning. It is complete negligence that Honda is willing to put potential passengers at risk in the car knowing the airbags caused prior injury and even death. I am extremely angry that Honda is asking me to also accept liability of having a passenger in the seat because of this recalled item. If someone is in my car and is hurt or dies I am responsible and the court system could prove negligence on my behalf. ** work over the summer I Transport children to different actives and not using the front seat is not an option when I have a full car load. I am a single individual that does not have access to another car and I refuse to accept this negligence and expect to hear from someone soon. My case number is 04840827.

Takata recall: We received the recall notice in March. Called service and told to call back in the summer. We called in early July and were told 1 bag would be a week or two and the other bag would be several months. Called back on 7.16 and we are now being told it will be at least another month. When a recall is executed, the parties involved should be prepared to service the vehicles immediately. There should be a plan.

Takata recall I was notified of the recall in the spring. I was told I would be contacted in may for the service. I was not contacted and when I called in June was told they still do not have the part. They told me they cannot disconnect the air bag per the law but this is ridiculous! knowing these bags kill, an exception should be made or the parts made available quickly. I am a small person and air bags frighten me to begin with but this is an incredible example of incompetence. Honda America is not answering the phone by the way. The safety risk is exceptionally high in this case and something should be done to rectify it now.
