Toyota airbag recall: I called Toyota to schedule an appointment to have my airbags fixed back in November. I was set up with the Toyota dealership to have my airbags replaced. They told me they had to order parts for that service and would call me once those parts came in. I never received a call about this again and they have not followed up with me on my inquiries.

I received an air safety recall notice therefore I scheduled an appt with boch Toyota in norwood, MA to get it fix since that was the dealer I bought the car from 11 years ago. On the day of my appointment I went there and they told me they replaced the air bag and that I was all set then I left.two weeks after while I was driving on my way home my air bag light came on, I immediatly called boch Toyota they asked that I bring the car, I went there directly. When I arrived they took my car to go check why the air bag light was on, I reminded them that I was there two weeks ago maybe they had forgtotten to do something. The service advisor told me he would have a mechanic take a look; an hour after another service advisr larry came and told me that the air bag sensor needed to be replaced that I would cost me $800. I told him I had my car for 11 years and the air bag light never had any issue until I brought my car there for them to fix the air bag as requested by the Toyota company;larry told me the issue the car has now is not covered under the safety recall and that my only option was to get it fix, he also said that if I was involve in a car accident the air bag will not deploy. I told him that it was boch Toyota's responsibilty to fix it, he told me it was not possible. Next they brought my car for me then I left. My air bag light is still on in the car, I have asked two mechanics for suggestions and they both informed me that boch Toyota should have taken care of it. Can someone please contact me ? I need to know how to proceed with this sice I'm driving a car with air bags that will not deploy in case I have an accident.

Air bags did not go off in a hard collision with a deer. Covering of bumper gone, hood bent 18"+-, radiator pushed into engine, frame bent on driver's side in front of the door. Car not driveable and yet the air bags did not deploy. State farm has the car policy 182 5776-C28-23A. Police report bec icr 16-17141, blue earth county, mn state farm claim 23-0177-0W2. This vehicle has been owned by family members since purchased new. Our concern is that the air bag did not go off and it possibly was unhooked.

I have the air bag lights on all the time, the time I turn on the car and driving it, it just do not go away on parking either, ever since I buy the car the dealers said it will go away as I drive it, it never did, it is not stable at all every time I brake while driving it goes forward like it did not stop but it did. It is in some way unbalance at every stop. But they said this is how it is since I bought it. Now I try to check on recalls and for some reason this VIN # does not appear to be valid or recognizable by the safety dept.. why" why? why? they do not want to fix it? or what is going on"

Takata recall- we received the notice for the recall and called our local Toyota dealer. They informed us that we would be contacted when parts came in. A few months later, we received a notice indicating that parts had been manufactured for our location. We called again and were told that they didn't have the parts and that a supervisor would call us back. We never received a call back. We called back again a few months later and were told the same exact thing, including that we would get a call back from the supervisor. We received no call back. We called one last time (after battling with this for over a year), and were told the exact same thing. We even said, "can you please make sure he actually calls us back this time? we have been promised many calls back before and never gotten them." Well, no call back! in the meantime, we have to avoid traveling with passengers which is a massive inconvenience, especially with two busy children. We had this same recall with our Honda and it was completely solved within 6 months.

Takata recall. Failure to remedy defect within a reasonable time. Awaiting replacement for over one year now and avoiding use of passenger seat is an undue burden. When passenger seat is used passenger is placed at unnecessary risk. Was on waiting list in Vermont for several months but have now moved to New York. My time on the waiting list is now reset and will be another 3 or more months.
