SEAT BELTS

12/7/2017 - SYRACUSE, NY
SEATBELT LIGHT IS CONTINUOUSLY ON WHEN DRIVING AND WHEN THE CAR IS STARTED. THIS CAN BE A SAFETY HAZARD. WHEN PASSENGERS ARE IN THE FRONT AND BACK SEATS OF THE VEHICLE, THE LIGHT REMAINS RED, WHICH MEANS SOMETHING IS WRONG. I TRAVEL A LOT WITH GRANDCHILDREN IN CAR SEATS. THIS HAS TO BE ADDRESSED IMMEDIATELY.

+TAKATA RECALL+ I HAD GOTTEN INTO AN COLLISION INVOLVING A DEER ON 10/26/2016. I WAS GOING APPROXIMATELY 60 MPH WHEN I STRUCK THIS ROUGHLY 110 POUND DEER. THE IMPACT WAS ON MY FRONT BUMPER ON THE PASSENGER SIDE OF MY CAR. WHEN I TOOK IT TO GET REPAIRED I HAD NO OTHER CHOICE BUT TO GO WITH MY INSURANCE+S GEICO EXPRESS FACILITY SINCE ALL THE SHOPS WERE FULL FROM HAIL DAMAGE VEHICLES. IN THE ESTIMATE AND ON THE REPAIR ORDER I RECEIVED FROM GEICO AND AMM COLLISION. MY VEHICLE NEVER HAD THE WORK DONE TO THE STRUCTURE UNTILL 2 MONTHS AGO. IT STATED THAT THERE WERE 3 STRUCTURAL COMPONENTS THAT WERE WORKED ON. THE RIGHT RAIL ASSEMBLY 4 HOURS OR REPAIR TIME 60810TA5A00ZZ (WHERE FRONT AND REAR PANELS CONNECT, HEAVY BUCKLE), THE LEFT INNER PANEL 3.6 HOURS REPAIR TIME 04695TA0A00ZZ(ROLLED WITH PUTTER PANEL, INCLUDES TIME FOR BRACKETS AT THE TOP OF FRAME), AND THE RIGHT FRONT PANEL (CRUSHED,COST EFFECTIVE TO REPLACE)60659TA5A50ZZ. MY VEHICLE WAS IN THE SHOP FOR ONLY 2 BUSINESS DAYS BUT SOME HOW PUT 41 HOURS WORTH OF LABOR INTO MY CAR. I HAD GOTTEN INTO ANOTHER HIT AND RUN ON 9/20/17 WHERE MY SIDE AIRBAGS DIDN+T DEPLOY. I TOOK IT BACK TO AMM COLLISION WHERE GEICO TRIED TO TOTAL OUT MY VEHICLE, FALSIFY PAPERWORK BY TAKING OFF COMPONANTS(TRANSMISSION), UNDERVALUE THEN RETAIN MY VEHICLE. WHEN I DROPPED MY VEHICLE OFF BACK WITH AMM COLLISION I HAD TAKEN PICTURES OF PATCHES OF RUST ON STRUCTURE COMPONANTS AND BROKEN TACK WELDS. STILL TODAY I HAVE BROKEN WELDS IN MY CAR. BUT THE MAJOR CONCERN WAS GEICO AND AMM COLLISION TRYING TO HIDE THE FACT THAT THEY DIDN+T DO THE REPAIRS TO MY FRAME FOR A WHOLE YEAR. AND WHEN I REQUESTED THE PHOTOS OF THE REPAIRS AND MEASUREMENTS FROM THE BODY ALIGNMENT MACHINE FROM THE SHOP, I HAD THE POLICE CALLED ON ME AND I HAVE A FELONY CRIMINAL TRESPASSING WARNING AT AMM COLLISION FOR ASKING FOR PAPERWORK THAT THEY CANNOT PROVIDE.

MY 2008 HONDA ACCORD DRIVER SIDE AIRBAG IS CURRENTLY NOT UNDER RECALL, HOWEVER EVERY OTHER AIRBAG IN THE VEHICLE HAS BEEN RECALLED AND REPLACED. THEREFORE I HAVE NO CONFIDENCE THAT THE DRIVER SIDE AIRBAG IS SAFE. I HAVE JUST RECEIVED A NOTICE OF IMPENDING BANKRUPTCY RE TAKATA. DO I HAVE RECOURSE FOR A REPLACEMENT FOR A VEHICLE CURRENTLY IN USE, GIVEN THAT THE AIRBAG MAY BE DEFECTIVE, AND THE COMPANY IS GOING OUT OF BUSINESS?
