Lexus (Toyota) Is not do anything to ensure rider safety of a car they sold. They are assuming the airbag, when deployed, only hurst the front passenger. Since I carpool and use my car at work, I might have to pay out of pocket to rent a car until this Is fixed. I am stuck since the value of the car Is compromised and I don't think anyone would want to buy it.

The dashboard Is melting, it gets sticky and when driving in the sun there's a noticeable glare that makes it hard to drive. And the same thing Is happening to the driver side door.
