Bumping this thread to see if anyone has not yet participated in the recall. Based on my local experience here in San Francisco, I think the participation rate is pretty high, but interesting to know if there are still stragglers out there still driving around with the front passenger guillotine.
I drive a guillotine. I need to get around to it.

As I type this I'm having Yoko Paradas installed so at least my Karma can't say I've *completely* ignored its needs!

I got the Pradas installed on my car also, and 1000 miles later, I am pretty happy with them.

Not trying to be the Secretary of Nagriculture here, but you should really make time for this before KA changes their mind and stops paying for the new airbag and the installation. From their point of view, their support on this is entirely voluntary.

Also, I am sure your lovely wife will be a lot more comfortable riding in the Karma without having to wear a helmet and messing up her hair.

Completely concur on Yoko,s. Had all 4 Replaced w/ 6000 on F1,s, looked and performed like 60,000. Also improved Lug Nuts, make a world of difference in ride and seemed to cure that odd tire rolling over on itself in low speed turning, maneuvering. Also thanks to Chris Feltner of Lamborghini of Palm Beach. Scheduled airbag two days after I called , was in and out within two hours. Good job, Great service. Fisker owners are fortunate to have both Harley Guy and some good dealers this area of South ,Fl.

Has Anyone in Southern California had their air bag recall replaced? If so, who did you use? I understand that there only only 3 authorized service centers in this area. Rusack in Pasadena has not had good reviews. I contacted the new service center in Thousand Oaks several days ago and it seems that their service dept. is not on board. I didn't even receive a return call from them. How about Newport Beach? Anyone used them? Thanks for your help.

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.
