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 recieved a recall for the air bags. I took it to a Saab dealership and they stated that they fixed but could not turn off the air bag light unless I pay them to rewire them

Takata recall I am concerned about the time it is taking to repair this. I understand that the parts have to be made but we are going on almost a year since the original recall letter came to me. When I call GM service centers they tell me that parts haven't been made and have no idea when to expect them. I drive my children around in my car (although not in the passenger side of the car) I am concerned because the recall states small metal objects could come out causing severe or fatal injurys. The car cabin is small and am worried for their safety. Is there some option to turn my car in for trade value due to this? I just want ta safe care for my family. Thanks, rob

Takata recall - we were informed of the recall nearly a year ago but have not been able to replace the bag. We have not used our front set on a regular basis due to this recall and have been forced to rent cars when we need to seat 5 passengers. This expense is burdensome, and we need an immediate remedy to ensure the safety of our family and our pasengers.

Takata recall called authorized dealer to schedule recall repair and they said no remedy was available. GM needs to issue a fix for this. I am advised not to have anyone sit in the passenger seat due to injury concerns yet the manufacturer has no solution for the problem.

Takata recall: I received notice of the recall and safety warning in July (although the recall was issued in may) of 2015. Since then I have received no update and by direction of the recall notice and safety concerns, I have not been able to use the front passenger seat of my vehicle. For the past seven months this has been an extreme inconvenience and has greatly reduced the usability and value of my vehicle. I would like to be compensated for this with a temporary replacement vehicle until the recall repairs can be made.

Takata recall 1. my car is affected by the takata recall, but is not listed in the most recent update on the NHTSA site. 2. more importantly, it has been 5 months since I received a letter stating the issue and telling me not to have anyone sit in the passenger seat. This is difficult to do with a four seat car and a family of 4. I have a potential bomb in my car that may shoot shrapnel out and I can not get it replaced or removed. This is completely unacceptable. Why can this not be disabled or removed (per an email from Saab)? not having anyone sit in the front seat and risking anyone else in the rear seats and driver seat is not a practical solution.

Subaru of America has determined that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in my 2005 Saab 9-2X. I was sent a notice stating that, " in the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants potentially resulting in serious injury or death." It's now December and I haven't received a notice to have the part repaired. Will GM/Saab replace the air bag " if not, can they pay the remaining balance on the vehicle and take it"

I am original owner of this vehicle. I received airbag recall statement in July 2015 and have heard nothing further. I contacted Saab customer assistance by email and was told no parts are available and they don't know when they will be. I am concerned that I have been driving an unsafe car until July and then unable to use front passenger seat due to recall statement regarding it being unsafe. I do not think this length of time or lack of commitment towards repair is acceptable.
