Jeep's m35 orc sensor recall has been closed since January 2013 but parts are still not available to repair the airbag from possibly deploying when it is not supposed to. I keep calling the dealership they say they have no info. I call Chrysler & they say "we are working with our supplier to remedy the recall & make parts available" I think 7 months is unreasonable when I am driving around in a vehicle that could possibly deploy the airbags at any time.
