Takata recall. My car was recalled in February 2016 and I still don't have placement parts available to me. This is a disgrace. I am the mother of a small child and my life could be in jeopardy from my driver side airbag.

Takata recall NHTSA recall #16V079 still has no fix available from Volkswagen. The start of this recall was Feb. 9, 2016. In nearly 10 months no fix has been provided. The concerning part is the potential result in death of a life saving airbag actually deploying. This is the opposite of what an airbag should do. "in the event of an inflator rupture, metal fragments could pass through the airbag cushion material, which may result in serious injury or death to vehicle occupants" VW and takata need to resolve this matter.

I'm in zone a (or 1), Texas and my car is a 2007, 9 years old and within the range that I've seen stated high risk but my car isn't listed in any of the priority groups for repair. According to this, priority group 1 is vehicles from model years 2008 or older that have spent time in a high absolute humidity region and have either a recalled driver-side inflator or recalled inflators on both sides. Parts must be on hand March 31, 2016, and repairs completed by December 31, 2017. Why aren't any VW cars in this list? (VW cars aren't on any priority list).

The frontal airbag inflators may release deadly metal fragments when deployed. Recall issued last February 2016, but 9 months later, there is still no remedy for this ticking bomb.

We have heard nothing from our local dealer regarding a time schedule as to when the airbags will be replaced even after repeated calls. What has been happening with regard to this recall and requiring the vendor to provide a timeline?
