11/10/2015 - FAIRBANKS, AK
I RECEIVED A NOTICE ABOUT THE AIRBAG RECALL IN JULY, AND THE RECOMMENDATION IS "THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT SHOULD NOT BE OCCUPIED". I'VE CALLED EVERYONE, GM, THE LOCAL DEALER, THE VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE, ETC. AND THE ANSWER IS THAT THE PART IS UNAVAILABLE AND IT WILL TAKE 1-3 YEARS TO GET IT. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE, MY CAR IS UNSAFE AND I HAVE NO ALTERNATIVE. I CALLED A SHOP TO SEE IF THEY COULD DISABLE THE AIRBAG FOR ME AND THEY TOLD ME THAT WAS ILLEGAL. WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO? I HAVE A FAMILY OF 4 AND PETS AND WE CANNOT ALL FIT INTO THE CAR UNLESS WE USE THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT. THE SOLUTION TO NOT USE THE PASSENGER SEAT IS COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE.
