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. Toyota sent me notice on August 20, 2015 of safety defect with air bags. I just received a letter today on 5-14-2016 that they would remedy the problem. I have been advised to not carry passengers in my vehicle in the interim, which about 9 months. This is unacceptable and has caused hardship and will result in an economic loss due to negligence when I can't sell my car because of its safety record. 9 months to fix a potentially lethal defect with a car is completely unacceptable. I also want assurance from Toyota that the problem solely exists with passenger airbags on not driver airbags.

Toyota issued a recall for my vehicle for the air bag inflator on June 16, 2015, and recommended that I not operate the vehicle with an occupant in the front passenger seat. I have since had to wait nearly an entire year before the parts for the recall were available in my area; I was only notified in may of 2016 that the parts are available in my area. In other words, I was supposed to avoid having a passenger in my front seat for almost a whole year. This by far exceeds a reasonable timeframe for repair, and I hope that there will be repercussions for this kind of failure.

Takata recall - last summer, we received a safety recall notice from Toyota regarding the front passenger airbag for our 2006 Corolla. We made an appointment at a local dealer (boch Toyota South in North attleboro, MA) and brought the car in on August 13, 2015. They confirmed that the car was included in the recall and needed the airbag replaced, but told us the part was on back order. It is now over 8 months later. We keep getting phone calls and mailings from Toyota telling us how important it is to have this safety recall work completed, yet the dealership still does not have the part. Today both the local dealership and the Toyota representative at the phone number listed on the most recent safety recall mailing confirmed that the part was still on back order. We asked the Toyota representative why they continued to leave phone messages and send us mailings regarding having the work done if the part was not available and they said it was a legal obligation. I am submitting this complaint because I believe the dealer or Toyota is unable to remedy the defect within a reasonable time, especially when the safety recall notice states "until the remedy is performed, the front passenger seat should not be occupied." 8 months and counting with no estimate for when the part may be available is unacceptable.

I was notified by the dealership that a recall for passenger side airbags was currently in place. When I tried to make an appointment, they told me it would be a 4-6 month wait! that's a long time to be driving an unsafe vehicle or are they discriminating against an older model Toyota" anything I can do to speed this up"
