Just wondering if anyone elses dealership handled the airbags the same. I had to get on a waitlist for it and have had them for a while. 2 weeks ago I got a call while at work and message was left saying they need my serial number from airbag. I had forgot about it and got a letter saying I have to make an appointment by the 9th to drop car off for them. Is it just my dealership that is stupid and didnt get the number prior to letting me go? I go to school and work and honestly dont feel like waiting/spending time for them to get something they should have already gotten.

At least you got a call and appointment , mine just told me that they aren't expecting any news until the new year . I guess faulty airbags aren't important right .

Haven't called on it since it seemed to be such a long wait. I'm hoping I can take mine in and exchange it, lol.

I actually just took mine into the dealership today. Told them I was in for the recall service and they took care of it in about 20 mins.

Prior to today, I had called and asked about getting it done at a different dealership and they told me there was a waiting list and gave me the run around of why it couldn't be done at the time. If I were you I'd try a different dealership in your area. Just me .02

That's interesting. I wonder if you ask for something in writing stating they had to make you wait, if that would change things?

I just called my nearest dealership and they told me it would be about 2 weeks after they ordered the part to get it. 2 weeks later I called back and they said part was in and we scheduled a time.

The dealer that i went to to get a spare key phoned me on Monday, made the appointment for Wednesday; I dropped it off, went to work, & it was done (how long it took 'em, I dunno,)
On Thursday, i got the recall letter;
& this Tuesday, i got the letter about the Passenger side, but parts aren't available.

Yeah, but it's been an issue for years. nobody does fudge-all until people die, & there are lawsuits. ...you weren't worried before, were you?

I've been waiting for over a year. Claim they don't have parts yet.

My dealer told me that they start with the older cars & work towards the newer cars. Said it would be the end of the year before they get to my 2014.

location will also determine order...ie FL before AZ for humidity reasons.

fwiw when I did mine I had been told they had been in for 2 months b4 I remembered to schedule it. I said if you gave them to someone else it's my fault for waiting I'll understand, but they told me the bags were released according to VIN #'s. The s/n matters because if there is another problem you'll want them to be able to track it.

I tried three times but each time I was told the airbag inventory won't be available till a few months later. About ten months later I'm still a few months later away from getting it fixed.

Two dealerships. Same problem. I even got the recall notice but no luck.

The dealer phoned me to book an appointment 3 days before I got a letter!!
They do things so mish-mosh & unorganized
...there's no point asking, because they have NO clue what they are doing haha
