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 looked up my vehicles recalls and noticed that there is one related to airbags. Coincidently I do have an air bag light lit on my car and it seems like my model year is susceptible to shorts in the system. I contacted the dealer and they told me that they have a 6 week or more wait on the recall and they will contact me. I find this to unacceptable for a safety feature.

I called Toyota, marina del rey, ca, in order to make an appointment to have the airbags inspected and fix. I received a recall notice in April 2016. I was told that they did not have the part and there is a waiting list for the actual part. I have called Toyota several times just to hear that they are still waiting for the part and they will call me once it is in. In the meantime, my car is part of this recall and no one has try to fix the problem.

Takata recall I contacted my dealer in May 2016 to schedule the SRS/ECU repair and was told they needed to order the parts. I called the dealer July 11 and was told the SRS part was not available and it could be sometime maybe months before the parts would be available. He stated it was takata's fault and there was nothing the dealer could do. I would like to know if what the dealer is telling me is correct.

Takata recall: I was told that the recall takes 3 hours. I can not be without a car for 3 hours. I tried to call the nearest Toyota dealership and they couldn't even schedule this appointment over the phone. They said they were busy and would have to have an "adviser" call me back. I will need a rental car paid for in order to get this service done. I would think that this would the utmost of importance and systems/personnel would be in place to handle this more efficiently and more timely. Since this is the manufacturers' negligence, I expect Toyota to deliver on it's legal commitment to pay for all costs associated with this burden. If it takes 3 hours, I need a rental car for 3 hours.

Toyota sent an ┐urgent safety recall┐ concerning the SRS ECU on my Toyota. The letter stated: ┐this is an important safety recall; Toyota has prepared sufficient parts for vehicles registered in your location.┐ I scheduled an appointment with authorized Toyota dealer charles barker Toyota in Virginia beach, va, and scheduled an appointment to have the work performed. I left the car for the required work, and picked it up later. I stopped at a store on the way home and called my wife, and she told me that the service people had called and said they had to order a part. Up to this point, no one had explained to me that the repairs had not been made to my car and that I would need to schedule it for a return visit. I called and spoke to service advisor derrick williams, and he told me that they do not stock the computers and have to order them. Toyota has not prepared sufficient parts for vehicles registered in my area, and it is preposterous that Toyota expects me to bring my car back for a second service call to replace a part that should be stocked.

"takata recall" I keep receiving recall notices, but when I call the dealership, they act like they don't know what I am talking about and when I call the 1800 number they act like everything is taken care of. Then the dealership calls and they don't know what is going on again. I have given up on the safety recall for the time being. I hope that as time passes the system will get smoothed out where this can actually get fixed, maybe. It does not seem that fixing the airbag issues are a serious priority in person, only on paper.
