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 scheduled a repair at Toyota of portland and when I arrived was told the part was on back-order and they would order it for me, waited two months and called again and the part was apparently in stock, but they couldn't schedule me for an appoint for another month. It has been 17 months since the recall. I am still waiting for a replacement. This is not a timely fashion.

Went to renew safety inspection for the state of hawai'I, and they failed me for having the air bag light on. As it happens, there is a recall for the side airbag on "select Toyota models". although, they didn't apply it to my car. Either that, or the technician, who took care of it before I owned it, didn't actually fix the issue, and just signed off on it. I'm still guessing that it never got addressed, because Toyota hasn't issued a recall notice for my VIN. The local servco Toyota shop will not fix the issue for free, if there is no open recall or I don't have the notice in my hand. In other words, I will be illegal to drive, in two days.

Takata recall- the vehicle was taken to the dealer for the airbag recall. At the time the airbag light was on constantly while the car was being driven. I advised the dealer/repair that the airbag light was on and that we had received notice of the recall. The airbag was repaired/replaced. Several days later the airbag light came back on and stayed on, therefore I contacted the dealer. They advised me to bring the car back to the dealer. We have now taken it back to the same dealer and now they say it cost $110 for the assessment and $550 for the spiral cable. I feel that this issue should have been included in the airbag recall and repaired at the time the recalled part was repaired. When I called Toyota customer service today to ask about the recalled air bag they made me feel as if we were in the wrong because we did not take it back immediately and that these were two separate issues. We took the car back at our earliest convenience and were shocked at the cost of repairs and that it is not covered by the recall and was not corrected when the recall repair was performed. In addition, other vehicles have recalled this part such as Dodge, Volkswagen, Hyundai, Kia, and just this year Jeep issued a recall on the same part. I have included these document in this complaint. I feel that this part should be looked at to ensure the safety of all those driving a Toyota.
