Takata recall: I was contacted about 15 months ago initially...then heard nothing. Now I've received another postcard stating that I must take care of this...and am being told by GM that they have no fix for this. How can GM be producing new cars with new airbags, and not have a fix for this recall going on 2 years? GM needs to fix this asap!
