AIR BAGS

2/3/2017 - LENEXA, KS
AIR BAG INDICATOR ON/OFF ON DASH WORKS PART OF THE TIME WHEN RIGHT SEAT IS OCCUPIED SO I CAN ONLY ASSUME THAT THE RIGHT AIR BAG IS NOT ACTIVATED WHEN THE LIGHT IS SHOWING OFF. THIS IS THE SAME PROBLEM THE 2007 EQUINOX HAD A RECALL ON BUT ALL SAFETY COMPLAINTS ON THE 08 HAVE BEEN OVERLOOKED, COST OF REPAIRS ARE AROUND A $1,000.00. SINCE IT HAD BEEN AN ON GOING PROBLEM WHY HASN'T THERE BEEN A RECALL FOR THE 08 MODEL?
