Takata recall. I received a recall letter in July 2016. I have contacted a Chevrolet dealer on more than one occasion after not hearing anything more about the recall in November of 2017. I was told the last time I called that testing is not complete and that I would get a letter from GM after all tests are complete. Is this correct or am I getting the run around from this dealer?

The dashboard immediately surrounding the case holding the passenger side airbag in my 2009 Chevy Silverado is cracked and broken in three (3) different places, including two (2) corners. I was advised this is a common issue in GM trucks, and that it is a structural integrity issue that could cause airbag deployment without accident. I was advised that since our truck is part of the takata recall to have our airbags turned off, especially since the dash holding the airbag is broken and damaged. Three-way Chevrolet in bakersfield, ca refuses to turn the airbag off, even after agreeing the cracked and broken dashboard poses an inherent safety risk by compromising the already defective airbags.
