Karma OC did mine last month. They came to my house and picked up my car and then dropped it off when they were complete, even gave it a bath. Gordon took care of me and was really nice.

I had my airbags replaced at Rusnak Pasadena in January. The service was good and I have no complaints. They even gave me a Revero loaner for four days.

Was there a cost associated with the pickup and drop off?

No cost. Forgot to mention, he put it on an open trailer.

Default Reminder from Karma Automotive about Airbag Recall

I just received this email from Karma about the airbag recall. The recall has been expanded to include more vehicles by geographical location. Please review and follow up if your car’s airbag has not been updated under the recall program.

This week I received an email alert from NHTSA, followed by an email and a letter, notice, and change of ownership card via USPS (see attached photo), all covering the Takata airbag recall. Has there been a second recall, or is this the same recall we did late last year?

I think it’s the same recall. I received my letter and change of ownership card by USPS last week. I think they split the US into different “zones” and are sending notifications to different zones on a staggered timeline. I’m in Washington state and now need to figure out which way to send my car - up to Canada or down to California. The dealer here cut out a while ago.

The scale of these recalls in both size and cost is breathtaking. At least 50 million cars will need to have airbags replaced and the total cost will be well past $15,000,000,000.00.

I was frankly amazed that Takata lasted as long as it did, likely due to having 6-10 layers of insurance. The debacle will result in higher premiums for auto suppliers for decades.
