Davydd,

The fact is that NHTSA is controlling the allocation of recall airbag parts and is initially allocating the parts to high risk vehicles which are older vehicles and vehicles in high humidity areas. I don't tend to spread heresay and try to spread only facts. When I spread a rumor, I specify it as such...

That's a better source than what you said before about a guy on another forum saying what a dealer told him.

Davydd, Do you actually read my posts before you try to shoot them down??

Here is what I posted...

"I noticed on the Sprinter Source forum that parts have started becoming available in southern states for the passenger side airbag recall. The recall parts for the Takata airbags are allocated first to high humidity states..."

I don't see anything anything like your characterization of my words ???

And my comment was based on the info that a Sprinter owner had received the follow up notice that parts were available not on something he had been told by a dealer and the actual fact that NHTSA was controlling the allocation which appears to be something you were not aware of but something that I was aware of.

Here is the post on the other forum for your edification, notice he is in FL, a high humidity area.

Sprinter-Forum - View Single Post - Safety Recall "Passenger Airbag Inflator"

You have, at times, characterized other posts that don't seem to agree with your views as being inane, stupid, uninformed, etc.

How about considering the possibility that you have a tendency to shoot from the hip without any basis in many cases for your judgements of other people's veracity...

The "high humidity" and takata have been connected since the first reports of the "shrapnel surprise".

early occurrences were in Gulf States and HI years ago.

So commonly known, not opinion or a guess- a provable fact



takatas first defence was to blame climate and applied to only recall model by model in certain territorries.

owners up in arms as this can happen anywhere and cars first sold in a dry state can be driven to a wet state.

takata took over the world market in airbags by providing a less expensive propellant than TRW...however...

I did a carfax report online and found that my newly acquired 2008 (2007 chassis) Pleasure Way Plateau had both driver and passenger airbag recalls still pending so I had these taken care of. I would suggest every new owner of used vehicles does the same, a small price to pay for information and peace of mind.

safercar.gov will give recall information on a per-VIN basis for zero dollars. Carfax charges $.

I'm in the deep south with three unrelated recalls on my Toyota daily driver (but none on my T1N Sprinter). Thus far, I've been told that that passenger side air bag is available for replacement, but not the driver side. I'm still waiting for the passenger unit to come in so that it can be replaced.

Hi,
I am in CA and the dealer I purchased my Sprinter RV from took it around to the local dealer and they replaced both of the air bags on my 2007 chassis. I will need to re check
carfax to see if it was recorded.
