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.

I was informed by Volkswagen that my car had been listed as a recall for the airbags defect. I was told that there was no fix for the issue at the present but then received a letter saying I was eligible for an upgrade. When I went to the dealership to inquire, they informed me that I was eligible for the upgrade, trade up but would have to make a downpayment. I was told VW could not replace the airbag without having to replace the entire steering wheel, so they were offering the trade up. But they could not do anything for me without me putting more money down.

My car has an open recall for the takata air bag situation. It' been open since February it's now August. As I understand it, the airbag apparatus is subject to corrosion in humid warm climates. I live in brevard county Florida, on the coast subject to high humidity and heat. My neighbor has an Acura which is also subject to the recall. Since Acura thinks more of it's clients they made arrangements for a rental car for them until the fix finally came in, in July. Maybe if VW had to do the same they may expedite my repair so my wife and I aren't risking our lives every time we have to drive our VW. Any help is welcomed.

I received the recall notice back to February 9, 2016. However, remedy is still not yet available after almost six months. I am really disappointed about Volkswagen's execution and feel unsafe when driving my car.

Takata recall I received notice concerning a recall on the airbag for my vehicle but when I called VW service several times, I was informed that the replacement part has not been made available. My concern is, if I or my daughter or husband was to get into an accident while driving the car and the airbag deploys, severely injuring or killing my family, instead of the airbag saving them, I'm going to file against VW. Because VW decided to wait and do their own investigation. I'm worried and I will be returning the car if this matter is not resolved immediately
