Takata recall - when will the air bags be replaced? I am driving with recalled, unsafe airbags and there appears to be absolutely no plan for replacing them.

Takata recall. I have submitted a request to the dealer that I purchased the vehicle from requesting an update for the driver side air bag repair. To date I have not received a reply. The dealer is serramonte Volkswagen, 711 serramonte blvd., colma, ca 94014. I purchased the vehicle new in February 2014 and received safety recall 69M9 in April 2016 from Volkswagen of America, Inc., 3800 hamlin road, auburn hills, mi 48326. I would like to know when I can expect this recall to be addressed.

Takata recall: The car is unsafe to drive because of the airbag constitutes a lethal threat. The value of this vehicle has of course plummeted as a result, making trading it in economically impossible. The recall is more than a year old, and there is no remedy in sight. VW seems to be sidestepping responsibility here, and telling customers "don't blame us--blame takata." But takata was VW's specific oem!

Takata recall just read that it may take over 3 more years for the fix of the airbags. I planned to trade this vehicle for another one. Now waiting 3 years for a fix will lower the value of my car. Is there a sooner time frame then 3 additional years.

When I got Passat SE I did research and I thought it was a safe car. My first priority to lease a car was safety. On April 2016 I got a letter from VW that airbag on front is not safe and it may causes serious injury or death. It been almost 10 months and still there is no words on when it will be fix. What is going to happen if I get in accident and die" who would fulfill my place for my kids" I want to change the car or have VW buy my car back. I want to live with my family not die. This is a serious safety issue and needs to be fixed right away. I got in accidentand the front airbag did not open

Takata recall Volkswagen will not fix the airbag of the car, help find a remedy or give a date to fix it. My wife is pregnant and has to drive a car with an airbag that has potentially been transformed into a bomb after it has been subjected to the Florida heat.
