Airbags likely to require recall are still being sold

I was able to have the driver's side replaced on my Mazda6 before I sold it but parts are still unavailable for the passenger side.

Apparently, Takata airbags that use ammonium nitrate as the explosive and will need to be recalled at some point are still being installed on new cars currently for sale -

In the U.S., a senate report revealed that four automakers, Toyota, FCA, Mitsubishi, and Volkswagen, continue to sell new vehicles with defective airbags that will eventually need to be recalled.

The Takata airbag saga continues -

A woman was killed in her home by an explosion Monday morning involving a truckload of airbag detonation triggers which was on its way to a Takata automotive parts plant, according to multiple reports.

Got recall letter RE: Toyota Corolla front seat passenger side airbag. Fortunately it does not seem to affect the driver side airbag. I usually drive that car with no passenger, so it seems ok to wait it out.

Getting replacement for our Acura suv on Monday. Went on a waiting list for the parts back in June.

But this has not changed my driving habits.
The parts for the passenger side came in 8 days after the dealer ordered so have an appointment for the fix in the morning. If I had waited on Honda to send a second letter (about parts availability), I would still be waiting - so I'm glad I decided to call the dealer.
