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.
