The contact owns a 2009 Chevrolet Aveo. The contact stated that the air bag warning light illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was advised that the air bag sensor unit was not responding due to her exceeding the weight limit causing the air bag warning light to illuminate. The contact stated that her weight was 262 lbs and that was unacceptable that the air bag sensor failed to accommodate the weight. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 56,000. The current mileage was 57,000.
