Takata recall (S43 / NHTSA 16V-352): I have been waiting several months for a replacement passenger side air bag inflator replacement and get no answers other than no parts are available. What action is the NHTSA taking against Chrysler/Jeep/mopar and takata on this" this is ridiculous that I am told that I should not have a passenger as this thing can fail. Is there any legal recourse than can be taken" bradley eleeson 7708 w. 67th St. Sioux falls, sd 57106

Takata recall I am filing a complaint because it is appalling that such a dangerous situation created by the failure of airbags and involving a recall actually has no solution and has no timeline for when a solution will be available, this is incredibly serious and important, yet there is no solution. You have got to be kidding. My Jeep Wrangler unlimited is part of this enormous, ineffective recall, and my family and I ride in this vehicle on a regular basis. This is absolutely unacceptable, and the manufacturers are clearly and terribly failing their responsibility to consumers.

Vehicle not being repaired in a reasonable manner: Received recall notice S43 and S33. I called sunland park Dodge, el paso, tx for service. Was informed that parts not available and to call back in approximately 3 weeks. I called approximately 4 weeks later to same facility and was transferred to service department. A representative informed me that one of the recalled parts was not available. I asked if I could order the part and schedule a service appointment. Request was denied. The representative proceeded to try and have me call the national Dodge parts dept to inquire when the part would be in. I told him that I would not be willing to spend my personal time (an expense) chasing down a part that he should be able to order. I then asked if he would make that call and get that information to me. He refused to help me and was attempting to end the call. Then I asked to speak with his manger. Around 20 minutes later someone who was not his manager proceeded to give false information saying that they could replace one of the parts and ┐inspect┐ the other recalled part to see if it needs to be replaced. I informed the unidentified woman that, considering the questionable customer service, I would no longer feel safe trusting their dealership to make repairs to my vehicle. Service incomplete after approximately 7 weeks. Pursuing service at alternate dealership.
