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.

Takata recall - I called green's Toyota in lexington ky shortly after receiving the recall notice to schedule the recall repair. I explained that I wanted to bring it in on the 1st available Saturday. I was routed to many people and finally after speaking to marion bailey (service mgr), I was told that they would have to order the part and once it arrived, I could schedule to repair. Yesterday I received notice that the part was received. I called today, and was told that they do not do Saturday recall repairs. My formal complaint is that 1. they could have an should have told me this before having wait 4 weeks for a part to arrive, and then having to find another dealership to repair this, and wait another 4 weeks for the part to arrive, and 2. we simply cannot bring this car in for repair during the week as we both work and cannot spend the majority of a work day waiting for a repair. We have a few saturdays that are available to us in the next several weeks and need to get this repair completed. I am formally notifying the NHTSA and Toyota corporation of America that we have made every reasonable effort to resolve this matter as outlined in the Toyota recall notice. However, we have met resistance and delays at most every attempt to get this recall repair completed. I am asking for specific and immediate assistance in locating a dealer close to our location, that will repair this item on a Saturday, and for expedited scheduling and ordering/receiving of the recall repair part.

Takata recall - similar to others who have written complaints, I received a letter nearly a year ago saying that I was involved in the recall and that there were parts available in my area. I scheduled an appointment at my local Toyota dealership (kearny mesa) only to be told that they parts weren't in yet and that they'd let me know when they were....I realize there are a lot of cars affected by this. I also realize that my region has low humidity and there's less concern for the airbag to malfunction...but this really is unacceptable. Nearly a year later and I have to either "not drive with anyone" or give them a fair warning that says "hey, that airbag might not be safe, thanks for riding with me!" it's absolutely ridiculous that there isn't a faster response or way to see when we'll be able to get our cars fixed.

Takata recall - I scheduled an appointment with ourisman Toyota in fairfax, va to have the airbag replaced. I called the parts department to confirm availability of the airbag prior to my appointment but received no return call to my voicemail. When I arrived for my appointment I was told that the waiting list at ourisman for this part is at least many weeks and possibly several months as they do not know when new shipments of airbags will arrive or how many will be coming. The only explanation for my not having received a call back was that "we use a call center now and we don't know what they are doing." My wife is leaving with the car for Canada in just over a week and is very concerned about making a long highway trip with the airbag situation still unresolved.

"takata recall" I received a notice stating that "Toyota has completed parts preparation for vehicles in your geographic area" yet when I call our local Toyota dealer, they tell me that Toyota is only allowing them to order 1 part per week!! they have put my name on the list, but said they will see me in about a year. This is not acceptable. This is my teenage daughter's vehicle and this issue needs fixed now, not a year from now. She has already been driving it too long with this unsafe defect. What is Toyota going to do if something happens between now and when they decide to let dealers order more than 1 part per week?? I would like an explanation and a solution to this problem for a quicker repair!

Takata recall. I got a letter from Toyota instructing me to bring the vehicle in for the recall repair. I contacted priority Toyota of springfield, va. 7601 loisdale rd, springfield, va 22150 to schedule the repair. After I provided the VIN, they instructed me that I must bring the vehicle in for a pre-inspection, then they will order the part, which will take a week to arrive, then I can bring the car back and wait for the repair which will take 3-4 hours. This is unacceptable. Toyota has a faulty part and they need to make it right with customers, not make us jump through a bunch of hoops. The recall notice clearly states not to allow someone to sit in the passenger seat until the repair is made.

I received a letter in September 2015 about my car having a recall on it's airbags. Toyota said they would call when they had the part in. I waited until January 2016. I called my Toyota dealer in January and asked them if the part was in yet. They said no and that I had to order the part. Prior to this, my original letter did not tell me that I needed to order a part. It simply told me to wait for a call from Toyota when the part was in. So then they ordered the part in January. In March, I still had not heard anything. I called and asked about my part and they said they still did not have it. I finally received a letter saying my part was ready on May 23rd 2016. I called my Toyota dealer to make an appointment. The service receptionist I spoke with was very short and rude with me. She told me that my part was still not in and that she had no way of telling me when it would arrive. I have had to drive an unsafe vehicle since September 2015. I should not have to wait almost an entire year for my recall to be fixed. I am still waiting and do not know when my Toyota dealer will be able to fix my car.
