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 Honda recall notice advises "parts needed...will become available in late summer/fall 2016..." and "avoid having a passenger sit in the front passenger's seat until the recall repair has been performed." To not be able to safely seat someone in the passenger front seat is a hardship that requires an immediate remedy. I called Honda pacific this morning and was informed that they will not be providing alternate vehicles because - unlike the driver airbag recall - the cars are still drivable. So I basically have to secure another vehicle at my own expense until Honda can fix the problem. This situation is not acceptable to me but I was told that all I can do is make a complaint. So here it is. Thank you for your time.

Takata recal - got a notification from Honda re driver side air bag recall. Took car into local Honda dealership 06/29/2016. Was told that another recall on the passenger side air bag also applies to my car, and that neither air bag is available at the dealership for repairs to be performed. Service representative ordered the parts and told me that I will be notified once they arrive, and service representative told me that he can not provide an estimate as to how long it would take for the air bags to arrive. Today is 07/27/2016, it has been 4 weeks since my first visit to the local Honda dealership about the air bags, and still no airbags and no date of their expected delivery.

Keep calling ventura Honda to get airbag recall parts and fix. They keep loosing my place in the queue for repair. Ventura is a humid area as location is next to ocean. Honda response unacceptable. Dot must take action to get these faulty airbags remedied much more quickly. Thank you. (latest call 7/18/2016)

Takata recall: I immediately contacted my Honda dealer about the driver side airbag recall on 3/24/15. Of course I wanted to be put on a list for priority, expecting first come first serve, in the absence of any other known orderly approach to this nightmarish ordeal. However when I contacted the local dealer and the national Honda hotline 6/21/6 for an update, neither could provide any new insight whatsoever after 3 months had passed. This is not acceptable. A manufacturer can provide some at least remotely accurate delivery estimate update and disseminate that info. Also, someone is responsible for acquiring that info, coordinating with other entities and disseminating that info. Rather important with lives at risk. If these parts actually start to trickle in, we, and everyone involved, needs to know time frames, and if there is a system of some sort in place, so that dealers can provide a better answer than "I don't know", and the customer can know that they haven't "fallen thru the cracks" which is pretty common in the real world. Thanks
