Takata recall I have o notices from courts that my car is equipped with these defective airbags. I called my dealership, hansel Subaru in sana rosa, CA, and was told "there are a lot of scams going around. " I was told there is no recall, which NHTSA confirms,and to call Subaru America, which gave me a recorded message full of legal gibberish. I feel I am driving around in a dangerous car, and no remedy is available. Somebody has to do something that makes sense!.

10/162017 - I was walking down the street to meet my wife for dinner after parking my car. As I watched her pull into the parking lot in front of me in the Legacy I saw the windshield get blown out by the passenger airbag being deployed. She was stopped waiting for traffic on a city street to clear to pull in and was not moving very fast at all, approx 5 mph. Luckily no one was in the passenger seat and my wife sustained minor injuries from flying glass. After inspecting the vehicle the following day our mechanic said he believed that the airbag recall # 96v315000 performed on 12/11/1998 apparently was not performed properly and he suspected that the poorly removed tow-hook was not cut off short enough (not to the recall spec) to prevent accidental inflation of the airbag. I believe that the remaining stub of the tow-hook may have impacted the driveway as she pulled in deploying the airbag, we contacted Subaru and they basically said it was not their problem. See attached pictures from our mechanic and email correspondences from Subaru.

Takata recall: this make/model is listed as a vehicle affected by the takata airbag recall.
I had owned the car for not even a year yet back in 2012, and the only accident I�ve ever been in happened on my way to school(college). The air bag did not come out of the steering wheel, but should have. Luckily I only experienced mild whip lash, and very large body shop bill. Also when they finally brought me in to get it replaced this past summer(2017) they pushed my car around the lot, and messed up my transmission amongst some other things. But when I asked the technicians about it, they got defensive, and denied any claim of wrong doing.

Takata recall. I received a notice of a class action lawsuit concerning takata airbags in Subarus. I must decide if I want to be part of this claim. At this time, my car has not been recalled. I want this takata airbag removed from my car! I purchased this 2015 car from the dealer (used) in 2016. Subaru knew they were selling a car with a defective airbag. Waiting to hear from dealer concerning recall/replacement.

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.

Are the dealers required to turn in the old air bags that they replace on recall? after the dealer "checked" my airbag serial number, which took all day, even though all they had to do is open the glove compartment and look, the dealer had me sign two identical pieces of paper with large dollar amounts on them. The piece of paper I received had all zeros for the dollar amounts, since the dealer lied to me about having to remove the dashboard to check the airbag, I am suspicious. Could the dealer use the papers I signed to claim to have replaced the airbag, but not done so??? the likelihood of them getting caught would be very low. I know that the dashboard was not removed because of cobwebs that were not disturbed between the dash and the car. The dealer told me that the airbag did not need to be replaced after they checked the serial number.
