Takata recall I have taken the car in twice to address the recall but the Ford dealer keeps telling me the parts are unavailable. The last time they told me they were distributing the recall parts beginning in the South and working northward (we live in Ohio) whether that is true or not. There are 2 recalls an neither have been addressed in over a year and a half. Our teenage daughter drives this car. Please help. We tried to trade it in and was told since there are outstanding recalls that the value is lessened. That is not right.

In June of 2016 I received a recall notice for the front passenger airbag in my 2009 Ford Mustang. It is now November 2017 and the status of my recall is still ┐recall incomplete, remedy not yet available┐. 17 months have passed since I received the recall notice. Why hasn┐T Ford provided a remedy for this potentially deadly saftey recall?

Takata recall I have not received information from a dealership saying that my air bag recall can be fixed. They just continually say we do not have the part yet to fix the recall on your airbag. I fear for my life and my passengers life if this recall on the airbag is not fixed.

Greenway Ford replaced my driver airbag in a timely manner, however I have contacted greenway Ford in orlando, fl several times to schedule the replacement of my passenger and side airbags. As of the last inquiry on Sept 16, 2017 hey are saying they don't have the parts. Now I see that takata is filing bankruptcy and will deny liability. I am concerned about not having these airbags replaced. Are there any other options?
