AIR BAGS

9/12/2014 - SLIPPERY ROCK, PA
THE AIR BAG WARNING LIGHT IN MY 2007 CHEVROLET AVEO CONTINUOUSLY STAYED ON. UPON READING THE MANUAL I FOUND OUT THAT THIS COULD MEAN THAT IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH THE AIR BAGS WOULD NOT DEPLOY AND IT STATED TO IMMEDIATELY GET THE CAR SERVICED. I IMMEDIATELY CALLED THE DEALER, WHERE WE PURCHASED THE CAR FOR MY YOUNG SON, AND MADE AN APPOINTMENT. I, THEN, RESEARCHED THIS AIR BAG ISSUE ON THE SAFERCAR.GOV WEBSITE AND FOUND PAGES OF COMPLAINTS REGARDING THE AIR BAG WARNING LIGHT CONTINUOUSLY STAYING ON IN THESE CARS. THERE WERE ALSO PAGES OF COMPLAINTS FROM PEOPLE WHO HAD BEEN IN CRASHES WHERE THERE AIR BAGS DIDN'T DEPLOY AND ONE CASE WHERE THE AIR BAGS DIDN'T DEPLOY IN A FATAL CRASH. THERE WERE ALSO SERVICE BULLETINS REGARDING COUNTERFEIT AIR BAGS BEING USED IN CHEVROLET AVEOS. HOWEVER, EVEN THOUGH THERE IS A MOUNTAIN OF EVIDENCE REGARDING HOW DANGEROUS THIS IS AND ALL THE VEHICLES THAT HAVE THE SAME ISSUE, THERE IS STILL NO RECALL. IT COST ME OVER $700 TO HAVE THIS PROBLEM RESOLVED AND I DON'T THINK IT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO PAY FOR THIS VERY IMPORTANT LIFESAVING REPAIR WHEN IT IS SUCH A PROMINENT PROBLEM IN THESE CARS. I HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO GET THIS PROBLEM RESOLVED AS THIS IS MY YOUNG SON'S CAR. I BELIEVE NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR THESE REPAIRS AND A RECALL IS DEFINITELY WARRANTED. WHAT ABOUT ALL THE PEOPLE WHO DO NOT HAVE THE MONEY TO GET THESE REPAIRS??? ARE THEIR LIVES LESS SIGNIFICANT BECAUSE GM DOESN'T WANT TO DO THE RIGHT THING AND FIX A DEFECT THAT IS THEIR RESPONSIBILITY AND NOT THE CONSUMERS. HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE TO DIE TO GET THIS ISSUE RESOLVED????

NOTICED AIRBAG WARNING LIGHT STAYING ON ALL THE TIME. SINCE I WAS ONLY DRIVER, I SOON FORGOT ABOUT IT. NOW THAT WIFE IS DRIVING IT, I BECAME CONCERNED. I HAD DEALER RUN DIAGNOSTIC AND THEY SAID THE AIR BAG SYSTEM CHECKS OUT JUST FINE AND WILL FUNCTION PROPERLY, BUT ARE AT A LOSS AS TO WHY THE LIGHT STAYS ON. FURTHER TROUBLESHOOTING WILL INVOLVE REMOVING THE DASH AND AN AWFUL LOT OF MONEY. SHOULDN'T THIS TYPE OF PROBLEM BE COVERED UNDER SAFETY RECALL?
