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.

There has been no incident at this time, but my concern is that I have been driving around in this unsafe vehicle for the last 6 years, endangering the lives of my wife, friends, and business associates while you guys were busy litigating this decision which should have been made as soon as they knew of the defect, not 3 or 4 or 5 years later. This is completely unacceptable, as is this ridiculous "remedy" and recommendation that we have nobody ride in the front seat. I use my truck for my 2 businesses that I run and I have people that ride in the front seat every day because the back seat is full of my tools. I don't understand why, after knowing about this problem for as long as Toyota has known, that they still don't have the parts to immediately get these vehicles fixed. My wife and I have been Toyota owners for many years, but we will never buy one again if this is the way they treat their customers.

I just received a notice from Toyota that stated they were just now confirming that the passenger side air bags on my Tundra need to be replaced due to possible defects. Unfortunately that truck is now in my daughters possession in middle Tennessee where she's attending college. Toyota knew about the possibility of these defective air bags over a year ago and now they're just beginning to send out notices" to make matters worse is when I called their hotline I was told that they don't have the parts in yet to fix the issue! that a second notice will come out to advise us when it can be taking to a dealership to get fixed. I'm gravely concerned because as you may already know Tennessee is a very humid state in the summer and the letter states that humidity may be a factor. How can this fix be expedited" I tried to keep up with all the recalls and the truck is in excellent condition, I just think that Toyota is trying to cover their rear ends by sending this letter out without any tentative date for a resolution. Please help us consumers...

On 8/17/15 received notice of a recall on passenger air bag. Per letter, I will be contacted when parts are available to fix the problem. In the interim, per Toyota, passengers are recommended not to use the front seat. If I cannot have the full use of my vehicle, due to a manufacturing issue, then Toyota should be supplying a similar vehicle until they can rectify the problem. In many instances I cannot refrain from using the passenger seat. I feel that they will be using this as an escape goat, so that they are not legally liable in case of issues or future incidence that may occur. In the meantime no can tell me when parts will be available to fix the problem. The dealers have no ideas as to when parts will be available. This is a major issue and Toyota should be forced to have time schedules as to when parts and repairs will be performed.

Per an urgent safety recall notice I contacted a local dealer. Fred anderson of charleston, SC. The dealership informed me that the parts necesary to remedy this recall are on indefinite back order. They referred me to toyaota at 1-800-331-4331 and that there is no expected date to get parts to remedy this recall. I contacted the suggested 1-800 number and was told that the customer relations manager was to call me back within 2 business days to get an answer on a recall remedy. It's been 5 business days adn no retruned call from anyone at Toyota. Meanwhile, the recal notice infoms me taht noone should ride iin the passenger seat until remedied. I have a vehicle taht Toyota has deemed unsafe for passengers, but htey cannot keep commitments on phone calls nor can they tell me when the recall will be remedied.

Their has not been an incident yet, I am just trying to avoid a bad situation, but not getting any help from Toyota's end. I have brought in my Tundra multiple times to get the airbags checked out and they always said their was no problem. Then now I receive a recall letter in the mail and immediately call and setup an appointment because I am fixing to leave town for a new job. We set one up for July 30th and then a few days later I get a call and they cancelled the appointment because they don't have the airbag parts. I leave town this weekend, the 1st, in the Tundra with the recall and will be driving around Texas doing commercial construction work. I am trying to work with the dealership to get things done but the manager, jeff, just pretty much said ol well we can't do anything for you. He never offered a rental or any other alternative to them not having the parts. I got a call from megan at the corpus dealership and she has been more than helpful trying to figure out a solution or some alternative so I am not driving around in a deathtrap for the next 6 months. Your rental policy won't work very well considering I work 6-7 days a week and won't be near a dealership so I might not be able to just leave my new job to come switch vehicles with you. The inconvenience should be on the dealership/manufacturer, not the individual who paid for the vehicle. I hope to see some better customer service from Toyota, but I guess if something happens while I have to drive the Tundra around. I will just join the lawsuit

Safety recall notice received on this vehicle in may, 2015 for defective airbag. I called the eastern shore Toyota dealership, daphne, al and spoke to service tech. Benjamin. Benjamin said Toyota is not manufacturing the parts for the recalled airbags so the airbag can not be repaired at this time. Benjamin said the parts manufacturer will not make parts until September 2015. This is a dangerous situation. The dealership refused to make the repair as stated in the safety recall notice I received in the mail. The recall notice specifically states to not drive the vehicle due to the problems with the humidity and airbag deployment causing serious injury or potential death to anybody in the passenger seat of the vehicle. The manufacturer of the part is taking so much time to send the parts to make repairs.

I received a recall for airbag actuators in the right front. I took my vehicle to treasure coast Toyota on November 5,2014 at which time they disabled the air bag system and told me that the parts would be in and repairs would be done within 2 weeks.it is now March 6th 2015 and I`M still waiting for this to be resolved. It is my understanding from the dealership that the parts are on indefinite back order!!! I was told by the customer service rep on or around Feb. 27th 2015 that the parts for my 2005 vehicle were the only ones on back order. I would like to have this problem fixed.
