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 : soon after I purchased my used 2012 VW Cc, the problems started : airbag light turned on, at the same time horn became inoperative and steering wheel controls became disabled. NHTSA recall # 16V078, NHTSA campaign number: 16V078000, manufacture's recall # 69M9, recall date 02.09.2016. Recall status: Recall incomplete. Remedy not yet available ! the second recall is : tires - pressure monitoring and regulating systems ( tpm ). flate tire image on and off every day a lot of times per day, despite the tire pressure is ok. Defective airbag ( inflator ) along with defective tpm are both major safety issues and in need to fix it asap free of charge. Volkswagen of kearny mesa san diego offered to fix the airbag at high price ! driving with those problems is dangerous ! I did not write directly to Volkswagen of America, but I am going to do it ! thank you

Takata inflators. The recall date was Feb 9, 2016. It is Nov 4, 2016 and the remedy is still not available. The recall is not being handled in a timely manner putting the driver (my son) at risk. According to the video at the NHTSA website on the topic, it states hot and humid climates increase the risk of malfunction. We live in nc, a hot and humid climate.

Takata recall, volkswagon has been delaying a fix for my Cc sport 2012. I was notified in February 2016 that my volkswagon ccsport 2012 has a safety recall of my airbags. The dealer as advised me they won't take my car back in trade for another vehicle do to the open recall. Further advised me that because volkswagon currently has no fix in the near future. My automobile with 37,000 miles in excellent conditon and maintained/serviced every 3000 miles. And I was advised that the value or treade in if they were to take car back. The car would have to be sold at auction for penny's on the dollar. This is a crime and out ragious that a dealer who has sold me two volkswagon over the span of 10years is now sending me to car max as my only option to trade my car or sale it. I'm out raged and need some advise or guidance as to how I move forward with volkswagon to settle this safety recall which has been on file almost a year. And volkswagon has no information or any idea as to when or how they will fix my automobile

Takata recall... when I bring my car in there is no fix to this problem but they say they can put ne in another car but my value is not enough to zero out the bakance on my loan... why must I pay for a car that is supposed to be scrapped and a manufactured defect? my loan needs to be zeroed out and I should be allowed to start over. I have spent extra money on that car new tures & battery not even a year old. The takata corporation needs to be liable for the remaining debt not me.... my note will go from 420 owning to 655 leased to get out that car and I'm forced to purchase another Volkswagen.... not fair at all....

Takata recall. I have been trying to get this airbag replaced in my daughters car. We live in Florida and her car is listed on the recall list which is still open. I pray everyday that she is safe in this car, we can not afford to replace an entire car or get a rental for months at a time.

Takata recall I purchased a cpo cvw Cc sport from and have gone to my local VW dealer in la quinta California several times about this recall. I am an 82-year old woman that frequently travels by car between la quinta and los angeles. I am very concerned about being in an accident along the much traveled highways between the two areas knowing my air-bag might not work. I have had arterial stents implanted and should I get in an accident the debris from a faulty airbag could kill me. I need this fixed or VW should offer to replace my car. What can I do" can you help in any way" thank you, [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Takata recall- I was sent notification about the recall via mail back in February. I called the number listed to get more information as well as set up a date to take care of the issue. I was informed that no resolution had been put into place at that time. My vehicle is stationary at this point, I would like to drive my car and not be in fear of my life with something that would hopefully safe my life and not take my life. If would like to give the car back to the dealership and start over.it is not fair that I have purchased this vehicle have not used it as I please because of the fear of the metal fragments in the airbags.I would like a resolution immediately so that I can in full confidence drive and enjoy my vehicle. I purchased it in 2013 with just 23,000 miles and as of this date it has only 60,000. Thank you very much for your time.

"takata recall" will the problem be fixed, I do not want to purchase another car at this time, but it looks as if I will be forced to do so. I also have some electrical issues with the car the air pressure in the tires and the lights keep going out to replace them every 4 to 6 months is crazy.. the dealership here wants to put me in a new car and as he said eat the cost to replace, why don't they just pay off the car and I can cut my losses and start over with a car of my choice, I'm being forced back into a VW car?

Takata recall - the recall was announced 2/2016. It is now almost 9/2016 and Volkswagen reports that there is no remedy yet. This airbag issue is potentially lethal and they are letting people continue to drive around. Where is the accountability?
