Takata recall it's taking too long to remedy this situation. It's been 5 months since I got the letter saying that the airbags are being recalled, and 8 months since the actual recall the letter states that "until the remedy becomes available, we recommend that you do not operate the vehicle with an occupant in the front passenger seat." No front passenger!? additionally, after complaining to Toyota hq, I got a call saying to make an appointment with my local dealer, who then said that the parts are not yet available.

Takata recall. This recall occurred last may and I just today received notice, 10 Jan 2017. There is still no remedy according to the notice. So my car does not meet safety standards that I've been driving my family around in and I have to just hope we don't have an accident?

"takata recall" - received notice of the recall for my vehicle in July of 2016 stating that I would be notified when a solution to fix the problem was available. It is now January of 2017 and I have yet to be notified of a possible repair date. The recall states that my vehicle is unsafe for someone to ride in the front passenger seat of my vehicle. This is unacceptable as this is my families primary travel vehicle. I believe that my vehicle should have been repaired by now or that my vehicle should be replaced until the option to be repaired is available.

Takata recall the problem with the air bags has not been resolved and it has been since May 2016. It is unreasonable that no solution has been found in this time period and I have been unable to use the front passenger seat for 6 months. I believe a rental car should be provided until the air bags have been corrected.

Takata recall : notified of recall in June 2016. It is now December 2016 with no end in sight. No parts available is the answer given every time I call. Ridiculous... apparently there is no problem finding the parts to make new cars...

Takata recall - I can't use the front passenger seat of my car. I think that is unacceptable when I'm paying Toyota for the car and can't use it. I do not feel comfortable even in the drivers side, how do I know that if the air bag goes off metal parts won't fly around the car and hit someone else. I would like the air bag replaced asap!!! the recall came out in May 2016.

Takata recall so I received a recall notice from Toyota for the takata airbags and called Toyota to fix it they said they don't have parts to fix it and to call again in a few months. A few months past called again and still don't have parts so ask what are my options" is it safe to drive" they say it's safe but just don't have sit in the passenger seat ( can't do that) or they can give me a compact car rental for free. I bought a SUV for a reason and need a bigger vehicle for work and will not accommodate rental for a bigger vehicle. I then agreed for a compact car then said I had to be put on a waiting list because there are none available. This all happened at Toyota marin located in san rafael ca. I then called Toyota corporate and asked if they can accommodate and whether they had any information when this will be resolved and jessica schell said she wasn't sure and started case # 1611031265 for my call and told me someone will contact me the next day about the case. So christina called me today and was rude from the beginning, first she said (her name was christina)my vehicle was safe to drive until you hit a 6-9 year deteriorate phase which then will be unsafe. That would be I believe janruary 2017. I then ask I was told it was shrapnel problem if I got in an accident by the first Toyota marin. Dealership service personal said (garret). So christina said she couldn't accommodate a larger a SUV for me and when I asked for her supervisor she refused to let me talk to him. All I want is a like safe vehicle to drive. I left like the whole time talking to christina from corporate she wouldn't answer my questions and said my vehicle was safe to drive and that it's not a issue.
