Takata recall...I received this safety recall over six months ago. Once again I am waiting too long for a remedy to become available. This is not fair to vehicle owners. We can't even feel safe in our own cars nowadays. No sooner than one recall is completed, another one pops up. It's not right to ask us to squeeze our passengers into the back seat until Toyota gets off their behinds and help us. Please give Toyota a hugh push!

Takata recall my car was recalled May 23, 2016. The documentation we received advised to not have anyone use the front passenger seat since it is the front passenger airbag that is currently under recall. It is now October 28, 2016 and there is still no fix or timeline for the fix available even though I am considered in the 1st wave of fixes where is says take immediate action. How am I supposed to take immediate action if after 5 months there is still no fix available" I contacted the dealership yesterday and they have not heard anything on a timeline either. I am unable to use my vehicle to Transport my entire family without the use of the front passenger seat. How long are we expected to have half a car? I must use this car to Transport a toddler. How can I be assured that even with no front passenger that she will be safe in her carseat in the backseat? I have read where even the the airbag is not on, the inflator could still have issues in a collision. Is this information correct" I am worried for the safety of my family but I cannot afford a different vehicle at this time, not like anyone would take it as a trade in even if I could afford it.

Takata recall - it's been 5 months that I've been unable to have a passenger in my car because they've not identified a solution for this airbag recall. The recall instructions state not to have a passenger in my vehicle. Can they please send some kind of update or fix date for this recall?
