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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Takata recall, it's been 5 months since I got the notice; however, the dealer still has no part to replace the defected part.

Takata recall/emissions recall - VW hello, my name is [xxx] and I own a 2013 VW Golf tdi. I am very concerned at the airbag recall because I drive over 150 miles/day just to and from work. On top of that, I also drive young children in my vehicle on a daily basis and I would like to know what my options are until the airbag situation can be resolved. I have had nothing but problems since I bought this car, and as a loyal customer, I am very disappointed. I cannot drive around a car that could potentially kill me due to airbag deployment and I cannot put others who ride in my vehicle at risk. This is an extremely dangerous situation and something must be done. On top of this issue, the emissions recall is still unresolved. I am very upset at all of the issues that I am experiencing with my vehicle and it is unacceptable! please let me know what my options are. Thank you.

I do not feel safe to drive this car due to the airbag recall has no remedy at this time, its been 1.5 years since the takata airbag fiasco. Air bags are required on all vehicles being sold new or used. This airbag might kill me, the opposite of what it was designed to do. Why hasn't the federal government mandated these vehicles be taken off the road due to it is an unsafe product to operate and there is no fix in sight?
