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.

Taka recall. Received recall notice in February. No further communication. Called local Subaru dealer. They have no idea when parts will be in. Called the phone number on the notice (800-782-2783). No option at all to speak with anyone. Called auto safety hotline. The rep tried calling the same number and had the same results. The rep gave me the phone number of office of traffic safety, region 8, 303-757-9381. Busy signal for hours. Someone needs to take responsibility for t his safety hazard. I'm surprised that Subaru is not communicating, and actually blocked communication about the issue. I'm getting nowhere, and in the meantime my car could be a death trap.

I called the Subaru dealer in newark, DE (matt slap) to have the recall done on my car. I have called three times in over three months and they still haven't scheduled or called me back to have the recall done. I feel that 3+ months is plenty of time to get the parts needed to do the job but, their excuse is always "we don't have the parts".

Takata recall I contacted not one, but all of my local Subaru dealers in the first week of January to find out which had the shortest wait time for the recall, which they told me was 2 weeks. When I called back 3 weeks later, they told me it was backordered and "don't call us, we'll call you. " it is now 5 weeks after that, I've been told by Subaru that there's no date for when the parts will be in, and my car is unsafe to drive. I have a job; if I can't drive my car, then I need a rental provided to me in the mean time, free of charge. Leaving people for an indeterminate period of time with an unsafe vehicle and no alternative is unconscionable.
