Takata recall I have an '06 Passat. Why is it a year after I got the recall letter that I'm still waiting for it to be replaced? I have a 6 year old daughter that I drop off and pick up from school in this car with the killer air bag! my passenger side air bag sensor "sometimes" works. Why the entire car hasn't been recalled, only god knows. This is ridiculous and I'm ashamed more hasn't been done to ensure the safety of passengers of these cars made with short cuts and cheap parts. My life and my daughters life is worth far more than another cheap seat in front of a killer air bag. This is suicide and shame on those who are delaying the fixes because that is potential attempted murder on millions of people and their children.

My vehicle is recalled for this serious problem and VW is not offering a part to fix it or a rental car. It is illegal for my mechanic to turn off the airbag. I feel extremely unsafe driving my car with my child and husband in it as a minor fender bender in which the airbag activates could result in death. It is totally unacceptable that VW is not offering a solution for these car owners today.

Tamara recall: I have called volkswagon and a local dealer about the safety of my daughter or anyone driving this vehicle. I have asked if there is alternative transportation being offered and both the dealer and volkswagon have indicated they are not offering any alternative transportation. They have also indicated that a solution for the airbag and parts are not available. Volkswagon should offer alternative transportation until this can be repaired and the vehicle is safe to drive!!!!!
