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.

I still have not received a notice that the parts for the repair are available. Their website states that they don't have a fix yet!!! this should not be taking this long and am worried about driving the vehicle. I have not received a notice from VW about this recall either.

"takata recall". I am driving this vehicle as I do not have extra cars laying around. My son drives this car. It is very scary to me that VW has had no recalls done, why" other models have had some cars repaired. I am unsure of the difficulty with VW and why they have not had their driver's side airbags fixed. There is no timeline only a suggestion to "drive the care impacted less frequently". does VW or takata think everyone just uses a car for extra or fun. If I had that kind of car, a for fun car, it would not be a VW Passat. We bought this car because it was practical and safe. Now I have to worry if my airbag goes off it could kill myself, my husband or my son. I am frustrated that we are told to not drive the car so much and that they can do nothing but by the way... you could be killed. It is stressful that you cannot sell this car to be rid of it because of this recall. What can you do? when will Volkswagen have a fix, why are they not fixing any airbags yet" we were notified in April 2016 and it is six month later with no update nothing.

A recall for the front driver airbag inflator has been recalled on my vehicle. The recall was posted on February of 2016 has the manufacturer has not provided a remedy as of now. Due to this I am not able to obtain a city inspection required for my vehicle which in turn I am not able to work. When I purchased the vehicle the VW dealer told me the recall was fixed prior to me purchasing the vehicle. I am requesting a remedy for this safety issue immediately or the manufacturer to replace my vehicle that is safe for me to drive.
