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.

Received an undated letter of recall for a defective airbag. This was an interim notice with a remedy but no idea when it can be fixed. I called Toyota customer experience and they gave me a case # 1508251905.they told me to call the dealer close to my area to see when parts will be available. No one knows when parts are going to be in my area.I am paying for a vehicle that I can't put anyone in the passenger seat due to faulty air bag that may injure or kill if seated in the seat. Toyota needs to at least give us an idea when this problem can be fixed.

I received a safety recall notice for airbags from Toyota who "strongly recommends that you have this safety recall remedy performed immediately. If you do not follow the instructions in this letter, you should not drive your vehicle." When calling for an appointment on July 28, 2015 at Toyota of fort worth, 9001 camp bowie w blvd, fort worth, tx I was told that they wouldn't have replacement parts until September 23, 2015. I'm unable to park the vehicle for 2 months, it is my only transportation. I believe that "Toyota has failed or is unable to remedy the defect within a reasonable time", what is my recourse?

Toyota is being dishonest and scamming consumers on the safety recall for the front passenger airbag inflator module. I received a recall letter on July 22 and called local Toyota dealer the same day. They set up an appointment on July 28 to take care of the recall. The letter from Toyota is written to cover their negligence and liability by stating to not use the passenger seat. This basically takes the vehicle out of use for many things a truck provides outside of a single driver. July 28 - the local Toyota dealer tells me after 2 hours that Toyota does not have the parts and I will need to come back at a later date. Again Toyota has limited or removed my ability to use the vehicle as intended. No date on parts were given by Toyota dealer. Call to Toyota usa customer experience center yields the following - Toyota states they told the dealers that parts are not available and do not know when they will be available. Toyota says the dealer should not have scheduled an appointment. Looks like Toyota can not get the basics of communications down. Bottom-line - Toyota is not doing the repairs, does not know when it will and vehicles have to be limited in use or not used based on the Toyota "strongly recommends" statement to not allow passengers. Now I have to wait and hope someone from Toyota contacts us when the parts are there as I have fulfilled my part to contact Toyota and return the truck.

I just called my local dealership and was told the parts to make the repair are on back order for at least 5 weeks. The dealership said "we will call you when they come in". seriously, the parts are not available and I am told to no let anyone ride in the passenger seat until it is fixed? I don't have another vehicle to drive and my husband carpool everyday 5 days a week. What am I supposed to do for the 5 weeks until the part comes in. I believe 5 weeks is an unreasonable amount of time to wait for such a cruicial piece of equipment that is risking death or severe injury. The problem is moisture and for heavens sake this is Florida with daily rain and high humidity.
