I have a 2000 Tahoe LS. It has never been wrecked, has 177,000 miles on it and the airbag light stays on. Any ideas on what to do for this?

My brakes went through the floor and I wrecked. Neither the driver nor passenger airbags deployed.

our 2000 tahoe door I mean all of the doors come off their hinges, we love our car but hate this problem, to me it is a safety hazard but we can not afford another car, and we are always paying to put the doors back on because they all have actually come off the hinge what the heck is wrong

Do you drive a 2000 CHEVROLET TAHOE?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
