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.

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?

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.
