Chevrolet montebello delearship in California refused to do any work on our 2018 Chevrolet Colorado. We received a letter about a recall on the airbags of the truck and we took the truck in due to some issues on the truck and the recall. Because they felt the vehicle was tampered with they denied to do any work on the truck even the recall of the airbags!!!!! the service technician we were working with said they were not going to deal with us anymore bc I made a complaint to GM and I would need to deal with them directly they refused to provide me any documentation even after their service manager said they would. This is not acceptable for them to refuse to fix such a major safety concern and to be honest they are being neglectful and should be held accountable for being so unethical.

Loose rattling sheet metal or other parts in drivers door pillar near sidewall airbag area. May cause serious injury if it inadvertently deploys airbag, or restricts airbag deployment in an accident. GM has been notified of this defective problem on all Colorado and canyon models since 2016 with no actions. Other dealers have used expanding foam to attempt to secure loose parts to prevent the noise. This may hinder airbag deployment if not addressed.

I was driving slowly around 3 mph on a national forest service road when suddenly the side curtain airbags went off and seatbelts locked. The truck was in 4WD low and off road mode was active. There was no reason for these airbags to have gone off.
