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 - I received a recall letter dated July 2015. Having received no update I called the dealership, duteau Subaru, in Lincoln, ne this fall. They said they had no parts. On Subaru's website today I read instructions to call the dealership and make an appointment for repair. Calling the dealership I was unable to make an appointment. They did offer to put my name on a waiting list should parts arrive.

The airbag light is on and I do not know why. I have not been in a crash, but I am worried it may deploy or fail to deploy.

I have received a notice that my car is being recalled under Subaru recall campaign wql-48 (NHTSA recall number 14V-399), for a problem with airbag inflators. Since then, I have contacted 3 different Subaru dealers to try and schedule a time to bring my car in to have the work performed. However, I was told that they don't have the necessary parts in stock. I have contacted Subaru of America, and was told that I will be receiving another letter once the parts are available to perform the recall work. From what I understand, the manufacturer has a certain time window to notify the consumer once the recall is announced; however, I feel that in this case, the notification is useless, since I'm unable to get the car repaired.
