Takata recall. I received a interim notice S43/NHTSA 16V-352 for passenger airbag inflator on 7/1/2016. It stated metal fragments striking occupants resulting in serious injury/death. Also stated no parts available. Which tells me no passengers in our largest 6 seater vehicle. 10/5/2016 I emailed mopar to add to "on email list" for parts hoping to get problem fixed asap, no response. Feb. 17, 2017 I went to local dealer who also looked up recall and stated still no parts to protect your family. What is the hold up? my 6 seater truck gets used everyday, can you help!
