Takata recall. There is an airbag recall that affects my Yaris. The deployment of the passenger airbag can send hot metal along with the airbag during deployment. Toyota recommends that no one sit in the passenger seat until the airbag is replaced. The recall came out in early June for my Yaris, yet by early October there is no solution to the problem. I also have a corolla that had the same airbag issue, but the faulty airbag was replaced several months ago. I don't know why there is no solution for the Yaris at this time and it is causing me hardship because I can't have a passenger sit in the front right seat. My Toyota dealer said that there is no anticipated replacement date for the airbag, so the issues I have will continue for at least the near future. I am very frustrated with the response by Toyota on this issue and would like to have my Yaris fixed so I can use the front passenger seat.

This is rediculous to wait this many years for a fix to these dangers. I demand you force Toyota to get a different manufacturer fix for these air bags. I expect a response in 10 business days to email cookten@netzero.net

Takata inflators. I was notified by Toyota about the recall over a month ago. According to the recall I am in high risk zone because I live in South Florida. I have yet to hear from them about getting a replacement. This is very scary and wrong. My kids are always in the passenger seat when I drive them places and are in mortal danger. When are these recalls going to be remedied" is there a time limit" I shouldn't be expected to put my passengers in danger everytime I drive.

Takata recall: Fortunately nothing serious has happened, other than the fact that the recall notice indicates I should not have a passenger in the front passenger seat as it might end in injury or death. It has been over a month since I received this notice and Toyota has yet to offer a fix for my vehicle. This has become very difficult in both personal and business as I use my car to carry enough passengers to require an individual to be in the front seat. The only response I get from Toyota is that I need to wait and worse, they cannot give me any kind of date. They are putting me in the position that I may need to purchase another vehicle but then I will not be able to sell mine with a known recall that has no status on when it will be fixed. Toyota has put me into a financial bind that may require I take a risk with an individual in the front passenger seat which in turn could cause injury or death. It's as if they are okay with dealing with a few deaths rather than spending the money to fix the issue.
