SEAT BELTS

11/7/2016 - MESQUITE, TX
ON 10/1/2016 A RECALL FOR CALLED FOR MY 2010 DODGE AVENGER SXT. THE RECALL NUMBER IS 16V-668. THEY STATED THAT THE VEHICLE MAY EXPERIENCE LOSS OF AIR BAG AND SEAT BELT PRETENSIONER DEPLOYMENT CAPABILITY IN CERTAIN CRASH EVENTS. I CALLED MY LOCAL DODGE TO SEE WHAT COULD BE DONE, AND TOLD THEM THAT THE OCCUPANT RESTRAINT MUST BE REPLAYED. THEY TOLD ME THAT THERE CURRENTLY ARENT ANY PARTS AVAILABLE, AND THEY HAVE NO CLUE WHEN THEY WILL BE AVAILABLE. THAT POSES A HUGE SAFETY RISK BECAUSE IN EVENT OF A CRASH AIRBAGS ARE SUPPOSED TO HELP SAVE LIVES. WITH THESE ISSUES GOING ON AND IF I WERE IN A WRECK MY LIFE IS AT STEAK. I ASKED HER ABOUT LOANER CARS, OR IF ANYTHING ELSE COULD BE DONE TO INCREASE SAFETY. THE ONLY THING SHE SAID THAT CAN BE DONE IS JUST WAIT IT OUT. WITH MY SAFETY BEING AT RISK EVERY TIME I DRIVE, I COULD BE KILLED BEFORE PARTS EVEN COME IN. I DON'T FEEL SAFE AT ALL JUST WAITING IT OUT, AND PUTTING MY LIFE IN THE HANDS OF DODGE. I FEEL LIKE IF THEY CANT CURRENTLY REPLACE THE PARTS, THEY EITHER NEED TO REPLACE THE CAR OR LOAN ONE THAT WORKS EFFICIENTLY. ALSO BEFORE I PURCHASED THIS VEHICLE THERE WAS A RECALL ON THE BREAKS ON 2010. IT STATED THAT THESE VEHICLES MAY HAVE BEEN BUILT WITH AN IMPROPERLY FORMED OR MISSING BRAKE BOOSTER. THIS COULD RESULT IN BRAKE FAILURE WITHOUT WARNING WHICH COULD CAUSE A CRASH. CHECKING THE CAR-FAX THAT I WAS GIVEN THIS WAS NOT REPLACED OR LOOKED AT, AND NOW I'M HAVING ISSUES WITH MY BRAKES. SO NOT ONLY IS THIS A SAFETY ISSUE WITH THE AIRBAGS AND BREAKS, BUT A HUGE SAFETY ISSUE WITH MY LIFE BEING AT RISK.
