I received a passenger side air bag recall from Ford several months ago. Ford stated they would contact me when the repair parts became available. They never did. Recently I received a letter from tk holdings Inc., (representing takata corporation) that they have filed for chapter 11 and that I should contact my dealer to get the repair done. I made an appointment with galpin Ford on 11/28/1017 to get the necessary repair. They called me back and stated that no parts were available to fix the issue. So. I am knowingly driving around with a dangerous potentially lethal issue with no recourse. I feel that if Ford cannot fix my truck (bought new from Ford) that they should buy the car back from me or replace the truck as if a lemon law applied. The value of this truck has been substantially lowered by Ford's negligence.

Tafata recall. We received the recall notice in March, 2017 and contacted a local Ford dealership to have the repair made. After the person looked up our vehicle in his computer, he replied that "it's only the passenger air bag that's affected, so don't worry, they only "go off" in hot and humid climates, and since Pennsylvania isn't considered a hot and humid climate, it probably won't go off". he essentially refused this repair on our vehicle. And, now we receive notice that takata has filed for bankruptcy, so where does that leave us? I do want to note that we purchased the car in another state, but apparently that doesn't matter per the recall notice. It states to contact a local Ford or Lincoln dealership to request a free repair. I would like to know when this repair can be made and hopefully, before it kills or maims someone in the vehicle, or I do reserve the right to sue Ford, takata and the local Ford dealership for all they are worth.
