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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

"takata recall". my mother and I received a statement from Toyota on 6-9-2016 regarding the takata front passenger airbag inflator recall. It is now 10-26-2016 and the recall part has not been in stock. My 93 year old mother's license expired on 10-16-2016 and we are attempting to sell the vehicle to a private party, but once they know the vehicle is unsafe with no pending date for the recall part to come in, they back out of the transaction. My mother continues to pay car insurance on a car that she can no longer drive and is unable to receive her income from the sale of the car. I had a recall with Honda that took no longer than a week and feel that Toyota has let us down by going over 4 months with no end in sight. I don't think that a company should treat customers who have owned 8 Toyota vehicles. Please help us resolve this problem. Thank you!

Takata recall received recall notice in may for takata passenger airbags. Toyota dealerships I have called have said that they are unable to help me and repair this life-threatening issue in my vehicle. I am still waiting for this to be resolved and it is taking far too long. Driving with a dangerous explosive in my only vehicle that could kill myself or a loved one is unacceptable, especially for this length of time after the problem has been identified. Please help!

Takata recall - it's been months since I was notified of this recall and I've attempted multiple times to bring my vehicle in for a repair and have received no fixes at all (I was told to simply not let anyone sit in the front seat--not what I consider to be a reasonable fix). I want it fixed. It's not safe to drive with a passenger. It's simply unacceptable. I want a replacement vehicle; or, to have this fixed immediately.
