AIR BAGS

2/10/2016 - BOONVILLE, IN
2008 CHEVY EQUINOX PASSENGER PRESENCE SENSOR SYSTEM IS DEFECTIVE. IT WAS RECALLED ON THE 2007'S BUT NOT THE 2008'S EVEN THOUGH THE EXACT SAME ISSUE PERSISTS. THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS ISSUE BUT GM WILL NOT RECALL IT. THIS IS A CRITICAL SAFETY ISSUE AS THE AIRBAG WILL NEVER DEPLOY AS THE SENSOR AND/OR PRESSURE MAT IS DEFECTIVE. THE "SERVICE AIRBAG" LIGHT IS ALWAYS ON. THIS IS ABOUT A $1,000 CHARGE AT A DEALER THAT IS DUE TO AN ELECTRICAL DEFECT. THEY ADMITTED ON THE 2007'S AND SHOULD BE FORCED TO FIX THE 2008'S ALSO. LIGHT HAS BEEN ON FOR 40,000 MILES WAITING FOR THE RECALL.
