 Description of the problemI received a recall notice on my 2005 toyota rav4 about a defective takata driver's airbag. According to the dealership, the airbag was replaced on aug. 27, 2015. To date i haven't received a second letter from toyota explaining the solution to the recall, and i've called them and been provided with no information. I'm calling toyota again today. On sept. 2, i learned from leith toyota that my defective takata airbag was replaced by another potentially defective takata airbag. This is the solution? This was what toyota told the dealership to do. An article released in sept. 2015 motor trend magazine details the same continuing problem with current takata airbags being manufactured. I am neither satisfied nor comfortable with the solution that toyota devised, especially since toyota recently purchased 13 million airbags from a competitor, so why wasn't a different manufacturer's airbag used in my car? I'm once again having to deal with another potentially defective takata airbag. According to the dealership, my passenger airbag is the same airbag as the original driver's airbag, so why no recall on the passenger airbag? I'm being forced to return the rental car today, which i've not returned due to the way the recall was conducted and i don't feel safe driving my car again. Everyone should be checking on the replacement airbags being used in their cars, because they're probably takatas. Takata knew about this problem in 2001 and my rav4 is a 2005. I can't express my level of frustration and anger over these airbags.
