AIR BAGS

5/13/2015 - WEST BERLIN, NJ
I'M CURRENTLY TRANSPORTING ELDER CLIENTS WITHOUT ANY AIRBAGS IN MY VEHICLE FOR THE PAST SIX WEEKS. THERE WAS A RECALL ON THE 2006 CTS, BUT NOT THE STS FOR THE SAME ISSUE. THERE ARE NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS ONLINE ABOUT THE SAME ISSUE ON THE 2006 STS. MY DEALER REFUSES TO HONOR MY REQUEST TO REPAIR THE PASSENGER SEAT SENSOR (WHICH CONTROLS THE AIRBAGS) UNDER RECALL. THANK-YOU!

I AM A MECHANIC AND HAVE WORKED ON NUMEROUS VEHICLES RECENTLY THAT ARE MODEL 2006 CADILLAC STS. SAFER CAR.GOV NEEDS TO MAKE ENGINEERS AWARE THAT THIS CAR IS A DEATH TRAP. GM SHOULD HAVE THIS VEHICLE ADDED TO THE IGNITION RECALL LIST. IT MAKES NO SENSE TO ME A A MECHANIC THAT GM HAS MODELS CTS AND DTS BUT NOT THE STS ON THE RECALL LIST, ESPECIALLY SINCE THEY ARE ALL THE SAME CAR. IT'S NOT LIKE THE CARS HAVE A DIFFERENT IGNITION , THEY ALL COME OFD THE SAME ASSEMBLY LINE AND STAMPED A DIFFERENT MODEL NAME FOR VARIOUS PRICING POINTS AND TARGET MARKETS. PLEASE DON'T IGNORE MY MESSAGE AS THIS IS A VERY VITAL TOPIC.
