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.

I want to complain about my recall not being replaced in a reasonable amount of time. Going on 11 months, still no solution, and I was told not to drive with a passenger until it gets fixed. Ridiculous. Airbags were recalled in December 2015. In January 2016 I called Mazda to get this scheduled and went in late February once the parts came in. I was told both my driver and passenger airbag would be replaced that day. When I picked up my car I was told only the drivers side had been done and I'd be contacted about the passenger side soon. One month later I get a call saying my other airbag part was in. I called to make an appointment and then was told, no wait, it wasnt. A few months later I received a call confirming my appointment for my airbag. Great but I didnt have an appointment. I called and they didnt know what I was talking about but would look in to it. 3 days later I was called again and said my part was in to make an appointment. So I did. I skipped work to bring my car in, show up, and was told that there was no part and there never was. I was told the part wasnt even available and not to drive my car with a passenger until its fixed. I then received calls from Mazda's Chicago office and letter in the mail stating indeed, parts werent available yet and reiterated not to drive with a passenger until its fixed. That was over 4 months ago at this point. It's absurd that a recall that can severely injure myself or my passengers has taken 11 months with no solution. And to be told "dont drive with a passenger" is even more absurd. I use my car for day to day life, that is not an option. I just want my recall fixed. I know many people that had both their sides fixed, why is mine taking 11 months an counting with multiple times being screwed around and over 4 months of silence now? if someone gets hurt, I'm suing the sh*t out everyone

Takata recall - this is the second vehicle that has been recalled for this problem. In both cases now the manufacturer has send a second notice weeks after the first replacement occurred indicating the vehicle is required to come back for an additional replacement. It is a significant inconvenience once let along twice and is not acceptable.

Takata recall the recall notice was first mailed in July of 2015. That was seven months ago and I still have not received details on how I can have my airbag replaced. I believe Mazda is not taking this recall seriously and not repairing the vehicles in a reasonable amount of time. How many people have to die before they offer the recall repairs?

Takata inflaors. I received a recall notice over 6 months ago, but the part isn't yet available for replacement. This is unacceptable. While I understand that the defect is mainly for vehicles in hot humid climates how can they assume just because I'm in wi I don't drive the vehicle in other states. Also it gets hot and humid here in the summer too. Please force them to comply quicker.
