Takata recall I received a notice in December 2016 that my passenger airbag had a recall and that there were plenty of parts so I could call my Subaru dealer and have them fix it. I did call them and they said that they did not have parts yet and that it would be a few weeks and they would call me to make an appointment. I called agan today, 3/31/17 and I got the same story that they won't have parts for a few weeks and that they will call me. I mentioned that I had already heard that three months ago and she said that it was because of takata and there was nothing they could do. This is a ridiculous amount of time for me to be expected to not be able to use my car, or to drive a potentially dangerous vehicle. The first time I called they said I might be provided with a rental car but every one I talked to said it was fine to drive my car. It is only fine to drive it if I do not end up in a wreck that causes the airbags to go off, which is not something that a person can really plan for. Subaru has not been able to fix this problem in a timely manner like they said they would.

Takata recall: my car has been listed for the recall since June 2016, but I have never been once contacted by Subaru to come in for replacement. I have no incident, fortunately, but the field below requires a date, so I'll enter today's.

Takata recall: my car's been listed since last June. No contact whatsoever from Subaru even though that's what I was told to expect. This is unacceptable. Luckily no incident so far, but the fields in this complaint form require dates, etc. So I'll use today's date.

Takata recall got recall letter, emailed (no response) then called. . . . Told them we are on an island in se alaska-no road, only amhs ferry. The nearest Subaru retailer is in juneau (we had a retailer which closed a few years ago), juneau is only reachable by plane or ferry. The cost for us to take the car there is over $1,000. 00 just to get there and return--no food, no lodging in juneau. The ferry does not run every day, so overnighting is mandatory. You cannot put your car on the ferry without a driver. My husband is disabled and I am not able to work due to health issues, we aer on a fixed income, and cannot afford the fare to get the car to the juneau Subaru retailer. To take the car south to washington state is over $2,750. 00 just for the ferry round trip!!! Subaru did state if we sent them the amhs invoice they would reimburse us $500. 00! it is not our fault the Subaru retailer isn't local anymore, nor is it our fault the airbags are being recalled, but why do we have to foot the bill to have it fixed. We had a place locally that would be willing to do the replacement-if Subaru would reimburse them the cost of the airbag and labor, but Subaru said no!! so we have a car we can't use for what we bought it for!! neither of us can ride in the back and buckle up due to space and our physical issues (we are in our 60's). . . The recall only seems to be done if it is convenient for Subaru! this was my 2nd Subaru, it will be my last! we are at a loss of what to do next. . .

Failure Date: 11/05/2016

Taka recall received a safety recall from Subaru around June 10, 2016. It has now been five months since we received the recall that stated that no passengers should sit in the front seat of the car. Five months is unacceptable for a recall that affects passengers from sitting in the front seat of a car. This needs to be remedied by Subaru immediately as it has affected our ability to use this vehicle as a family car.

Subaru of America¿s recall campaign: tka-16, NHTSA no. 16v-358 states that: the parts are not available to fix the airbag problem. Their letter also states: ¿until this repair is performed, do not allow passengers to ride in the front passenger seat. ¿ however they have not authorized the dealerships to manually turn the airbags off while they wait on parts. The NHTSA should immediately enact a ruling that Subaru do this immediately.

Takata recall: several weeks ago I received a notice in the mail saying that there was a recall on the airbags in my Subaru. The notice said not to let anyone ride in my car in the front seat. It also said that replacement airbags would be installed at no cost and that I would be notified when the new airbags are available. My complaint: it has been several weeks. I cannot drive with anyone in my front seat and I am getting tired of waiting to find out when the new bags will be available. I've heard nothing else! the replacements need to be installed very soon! I went to this website (https://vinrcl. Safercar. Gov/VIN/vinlookup) to find out more about this recall and there was the following notice: if the manufacturer has failed or is unable to remedy this safety recall for your vehicle in a timely manner, please contact the NHTSA vehicle safety hotline 1-888-327-4236 or tty: 1-800-424-9153 or file an online complaint with NHTSA.

Takata recall: I am concerned with driving my vehicle with the takata airbags installed. Even though the airbags are on the passenger side, I am afraid the deployment of the airbags would still affect me as the driver. I am writing this complaint because I cannot access a rental car due to my age. I am 21 years old and am unable to access a rental car from my dealership due to my age. My dealership would be willing to rent and pay for a car ifi were the proper age of 25. What concerns me about this is that I could be seriously injured as a driver if the airbags still deploy. I personally believe the dealership or rental companies need to make acceptions for those under the age of 25. I don't know what that acception would be, but I am afraid to drive others, let alone myself, in a car that is considered unsafe at the moment. I greatly appreciate the fact this safety complaint exists, but I would appreciate it even more if I were provided a car for the mean time so I may keep myself and others safe within my car. I do not speak for just myself, but I speak for those who are under 25 and face the same fears when driving their cars with these airbags. Thank you for your time, and hope to hear something soon.
