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 inflators: I had service performed for the takata airbag issue on or about July 13. Within a month the SRS unit light came on. I took it in to lucas Honda, where I bought the Ridgeline. After a few days of them not finding the problem, they came back to me and said the SRS unit was bad and they had to replace it. It is not covered under warranty and it would cost me $700.+ to fix it. I vehemently protested that it had to be from the recall work performed, but they said that there was no indication that it was. I feel that their repair caused the SRS unit to fail at my expense.

Takata recall. I have received no notification from Honda on when the replacement parts are going to be available. The rohrman auto group is the Honda dealer I purchased and service the vehicle at - recall was on my service report and was told the parts were "not a problem". several weeks later and now no one knows when the replacement parts will be available.

"takata recall" I found out my vehicle was on the recall list in February 2016, even before I received my recall letter which was March 29, 2016. I have been driving a vehicle that could seriously injure me or even kill me and do serious harm to any passengers as well as someone else on the road. I have been driving for 4 years like this with no concern whatsoever from the Honda company. I take my granddaughters and elderly mother in my vehicle a lot and they could have been hurt. Yes, Honda has given me a rental, after much confusion and complaining, but I did not buy my expensive 2012 Honda Ridgeline to have it sit in my garage until they think it can be fixed. I have been told by the dealer that the summer of 2016 timing will probably not happen. These vehicles are dangerous to be driving and Honda had me sign a paper that I would not drive mine. Why doesn't Honda take back the vehicles and replace them with a new, safer vehicle" my vehicle only has 20,000 plus miles on it and is like new. Even replacing the airbags are scary because, if they use takata again, how do we know these newer airbags are safe" we should put some of these executives in these vehicles and let them drive them. It's like playing russian roulette with our lives!

Takata recall. To date nothing has happened but if I hadn't seen something on my local news I would still be driving my vehicle, which by the way only has 22,000 or so miles on it. I contacted Honda, which was a drawn out affair to let them know my vehicle is on the recall and they set something up for a rental car. They had me sign a paper stating I would not drive my vehicle, which I wouldn't anyway, and sent me to a rental Agency. Now I have to return every 30 days to redo the rental contract and if my rental car is sold, I will have to return it right away. I did not buy my $33,000 vehicle to have it sit in my garage for as long as a year or more, according to what the Honda dealer told me. I do not want another takata airbag, because they are the problem to begin with and how do I know that the next one will be safe" I think the Honda company should take my vehicle and give me a new safe vehicle. I was driving and transporting my three young granddaughters as well as my elderly mother in my vehicle and now I come to find out I as well as they could have been terribly injured or killed. Does anyone at this Agency or these dealers put themselves and their families in these positions" I am disappointed that people's lives seem to mean nothing. If these airbags do erupt, they can dangerously injured the occupants as well as others out on the roadways. The vehicles should be replaced with new vehicles. My vehicle sits in my garage until it can be fixed and then it will be towed to the Honda dealer. I did not buy my vehicle to have it sit and depend on a rental for transportation.
