2006 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

My complaint is against the ruling. "the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has ruled that Toyota must recall nearly 160,000 Tundra pickups built between 2003 and 2005 in order to deactivate the front-seat passenger air bag cut-off switch in each truck. The Tundra's fail to meet any NHTSA regulations that require vehicles equipped with air bag cut-off switches to also have latch (lower anchorages and tethers for children) systems. Deactivating the cut-off switches was deemed less expensive than retrofitting the Tundra's with the latch system." Great ruling, how does this protect my 6 year old sitting in the front, in a booster seat using the seat belt. Booster seats don't require a latch system but his weight is below what is considered safe for airbag deployment. My scenario is exactly what the cutoff switch was intended for, my 6 year old occasionally riding in the front with me. This ruling has caused Toyota to factory disable the front switch in my '06 double cab Tundra, making the front seat very unsafe for a child in a booster seat. Way to go, thanks for thinking of everything.
