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.

I believed my airbag was fixed. I took my Toyota Corolla in to the dealership in November. They advised me they could fix my airbag. They called me to pick it up and stated it was fixed. However I got a new safety recall in the mail saying my Corolla has a airbag recall. I called the Toyota company as stated on the form and the customer service lady stated that there is another recall and the first fix was not a fix. I do not understand. Have I been driving around in my car with the passenger seat airbag not fixed when I was told it was fixed. This is not safe. That means for 3 months I have been driving around with an unsafe airbag that could kill me or my passenger. Toyota is saying that they have no parts and no fix at this time. But legally they are to notify me. This is very stressful and just plain wrong. It's not safe and they are putting my life and family in jeopardy. I do not believe they are taking this seriously or working fast enough with a solution. She kept telling me that they are most concerned with the gulf states. Well I live a hour and a half from the gulf. Secondly the test results show they are not sure if humidity plays a part in the airbag issue. I believe Toyota should be offering a safe solution to the problem or offering us rental cars.

I have been receiving recall letters since 2011 or so. I call Toyota to have this issue taken care of every 6 months and they tell me that the parts needed to fix my recall have not been manufactured yet. The last time I called Toyota in mamaroneck, NY, they actually gave me an appointment but when I got there they could not help me. A total waste of time. What are they waiting for?? I don't feel safe driving a car which air bags are not properly installed.

I contacted Toyota motor corporation concerning a recall on the air bag of the vehicle noted above. In speaking to first michelle and then janee, I complained that this vehicle is used by my son. Since there are often other people also inside of the vehicle I have a concern that the air bag, when deployed, will cause injury to the passengers, mostly children. I asked Toyota that simply not having passengers in the vehicle as a temporary measure until the resolution is available, with no time table of expected completion, is unacceptable. I requested to file a complaint in which janee informed me that she would take the complaint. After the complaint was filed I asked what the next step was; she stated that there were no other steps. She explained that Toyota simply keeps the complaint without further follow-up or cataloging. When I asked about a rental vehicle such as what GM provided for their recalls, she stated that Toyota will not be doing that and again recommended that the guidelines of not carrying passengers be followed. I find the resolution by Toyota to this problem as unreasonable and unacceptable; particularly in that I am force to accept all of the financial liability should someone become injured during the operation of this vehicle. Toyota should be held responsible in providing a rental vehicle, at no charge to me, until the parts are available and installed.

I received a safety recall letter as well as couple messages about the airbag safety recall for my vehicle, I made an appointment last December 24, 2014 in the Toyota dealership for that specific recall nearby where I live which is the doxon Toyota in auburn, Washington, when we came in for the appointment the service specialist [xxx], did not even inspect our car but automatically told us that the available parts is on back order and they don't know when it is coming gave us 3 options to leave our car and they will give us a loaner with so many restrictions on the loaner vehicle that they will loan us, disable the airbag on the vehicle and they are not responsible is something happens to the vehicle while we were driving it and just drive our car and they will call us once the parts comes in. Anyway we decided to keep our car followed up with them today 1/2/2015 spoke to [xxx] and she states that the parts might not be available for the next 6 months. It is very frustrating because they have that don't care attitude just because its not their vehicle that is affected or it is just the way Toyota motors deals with their customers.
