I WAS TOLD THE PART MUST BE DESIGNED AND MFG, BEFORE AVAILABLE. I REQUESTED INTERIM REPAIR OR LOANER. NONE IS AVAILABLE. I TOLD THEM MY CONCERN OF DRIVING VEHICLE WITH DEFECT. THEY SAY FORD DOES NOT KNOW OF ANY PROBLEM WITH THE AIRBAGS. IF NO PROBLEM, WHY ARE THEY RECALLING? MY VEHICLE RE-SELL VALUE IS LOST WITH THE DEFECT PRESENT. I THINK FORD IS NOT TAKING CARE OF THIS RECALL. SENDING ME A LETTER NOTICE, WITH NO FIX, IS NOTHING. I CANNOT SELL, REPLACE, GET A NEW CAR OR QUIT DRIVING THE CAR WHILE I WAIT FOR FORD.
