Takata recall has not been fixed. My car is a 2006. I can not trade or sale my car in the condition of the recall on this airbag. How do I get my money back?

Takata recall: Was notified Feb 2016 but there is no way to get this fixed! there is no way to remedy this problem. I am still waiting to hear what to do about getting the airbags replaced and in the meantime, despite paying for insurance, costs, etc, have limited my use of the car. No word from anyone; no one is willing to fix it.

Takata recall. I feel that GM should be ready and completing these recalls in a much more timely fashion. This has been a known issue for quite some time and owners shoukd not have to live with the worry about these potentially lethal airbags!

We received a letter from Saab approximately 1 year ago and the dealership (a registered Saab service center) says that it is not an active recall, even though when we type in the VIN number on the NHTSA website, it comes back as having this particular recall for the airbags. We have been calling the dealership every month and they refuse to work with us and insist that this recall is not real.

Takata recall. I have been notified of the recall about 9 months ago. There have been multiple deaths related to the airbag deployment. I feel unsafe driving my car and would like a remedy now. If you can not fix the airbag now I would like to have an alternative option to driving the ticking timebomb.

Takata recall: To date, there is still no remedy available. Are they waiting for more people to die? the recall date of this open recall was in February 2016, which is nearly a year ago. This failure to remedy this "safety risk"/deadly problem nearly nine months definitely qualifies as a not being remedied in a timely manner. Please advise.

There was a recall for the airbags. But they're still hasn't been a fix. I do not feel comfortable driving my car when the airbags are defective, because I was in a terrible car accident last November (in a different vehicle) and I don't feel safe because of that
