Complaint - Air Bags

I HAVE A VOLVO S60 2002- WITH VERY LOW MILES AT 114.000. IT HAS BEEN GARAGE KEPT A MAJORITY OF IT'S LIFE AND IS TRULY IN MINT CONDITION. I RECENTLY TOOK THE VEHICLE TO VOLVO FOR MAINTENANCE CHECK UP (UNDERSTANDABLY) AND ALSO BECAUSE AN AIR-BAG LIGHT CAME ON. IT READS SRS AIRBAG SERVICE URGENT. NOW I'M NOT A MECHANIC, BUT BASICALLY THE AIRBAG IS IN TACT BUT THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER OR DIM HAS FAILED. SINCE IT WASN'T THE AIRBAG ITSELF I WASN'T SURE HOW THEY WERE RELATED AND THEY EXPLAINED THAT THE CLUSTER SIGNALS WERE NOT NECESSARILY REACHING THE AIRBAG. AS A MOTHER AND KNOWING VOLVO HAS A LOT OF AIRBAGS I WAS CURIOUS AS TO WHICH ONES WERE AFFECTED AND THEY SAID THEY CAN NOT GUARANTEE THAT ANY OF THEM WOULD DEPLOY IN A CRASH. NOW THIS IS A COSTLY PROBLEM $2300 AS WELL AS VERY COMMON AS I SEE IN THE FORUMS. LIKE I SAID, MY CAR IS IN QUITE GOOD CONDITION ASIDE FROM NORMAL MAINTENANCE FOR IT'S AGE, BUT I DO NOT BELIEVE THE DIM TO BE NORMAL MAINTENANCE. ADDITIONALLY, BECAUSE OF THE COST AND THE DIFFICULTY OF THIS TYPE OF ISSUE, OWNERS ARE BEING FORCED TO DIY IT THEMSELVES AND SEND THEIR DASHES TO SOME COMPANY IN CANADA. NOW IF IT ONLY AFFECTED MY RADIO OR INTERIOR LIGHTS, ETC. WHICH IT DOESN'T, I WOULD PROBABLY SEND IT OFF TO CANADA TOO. BUT WITH IT HAVING TO DO WITH THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE CAR- THE AIRBAGS AND VOLVO BEING THE TOP RATED FOR SAFETY FEATURES, MY CONFIDENCE IS VERY LOW AND I THINK SOMEONE NEEDS TO STEP IN. THE THING IS, VOLVOS ARE SUPPOSED TO EASILY LAST UP TO 300,000. BUT WITH FAULTY COMPUTERS THAT HAVE TO DO WITH THE AIRBAG (EVEN THOUGH THE AIRBAG ITSELF IS FINE), OWNERS ARE BEING FORCED TO RID THEIR CARS, TRADE THEM IN, ETC. BECAUSE OF THIS ISSUE. WE NEED TO ENCOURAGE THE IMPORTANCE OF AIRBAGS TO CONSUMERS WHO ARE IGNORING HAVING THIS FIXED BECAUSE OF THE COST AND PREVENT INJURIES AHEAD OF TIME.
