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. We received the recall notice and were told that we would be put on a waiting list for the repair. It has been 4 months and when we called today, were told that they haven't received any parts from Toyota at all and that there are still 8 pages of names ahead of us. Meanwhile, someone usually has to ride in the passenger front seat. Maybe the Toyota company thinks it is just cheaper to ignore the recalls and pay the law suite when someone gets killed.

Takata recall. I called my local Toyota dealership, hansel Toyota, and asked when the recalled part might be replaced. I was told possibly December or spring of 2017 and they were sorry for the inconvenience. I called again today and was told the supervisor was telling the agent I was speaking with that it might be fixed by spring or summer of 2017. I then called Toyota customer experience center and was told they would not give a date until the parts are ready. I expressed my frustration at not being able to ride with a front seat passenger for the last 6-7 months. The agent told me he was in the same position I was. If this does not get fixed until summe of 2017, I will have been unable to use my front passenger seat for over one year. This also concerns me as to why the recall only applies to the passenger seat. This has been a huge worry that the airbag will deploy and injure my vehicles occupants, but this is the only vehicle I own.

Takata recall (16V-340) was issued on May 23, 2016, but Toyota dealers still do not have parts to correct this issue, more than six months after the recall's release. I live in South Texas (zone a) which is part of the region that is most at risk for this failure.

Takata recall - it has been over 5 months since the recall. My Honda civic (yr 2010) has already had the air bag replaced last month. It is ridiculous that I have to drive my Toyota with no one in the passenger seat. When we go out with another couple, we have to always take their car. I call the Toyota dealer and their corporation offices and they offer no information at all - unless you consider them saying they don't know how much longer it will take as information. This is so infuriating!!
