Takata recall. It has been almost 1.5 years since the recall and GM hasn┐T fixed the issue. When will the NHTSA force GM to fix the problem. GM's response is that they feel the truck is safe to drive. That isn┐T good enough.

The notification for replacement of the airbags was received prior to the October 2017 mail out notification regarding tk holdings Inc., chapter 11. I visited the dealership where I purchased the truck and requested the airbags be replaced. They would not replace them. On my next service (oil change) for the truck, I made the request again for the airbags to be replaced and it was not done. I later noticed a crack in the dashboard panel and brought that to the attention of the dealership. Nothing was done. The dealership is bob hembree Chevrolet in guntersville, Alabama. I now receive this notice and would like to take action to get the airbags replaced and the dash repaired.

Since submitting my previous safety complaint, my "service airbag system" message is now displayed continuously and longer intermittently displayed. I have also received written correspondence from takata announcing their chapter 11 filing and confirmation that my vehicle may have a defective airbag. The notice also advised me to schedule an appointment with a local car dealer to get the defect repaired at no cost to me. I scheduled an appointment on 10-30-2017 for the repair work but was told by the dealership that they could not complete the repairs as "GM has not issued a fix yet". what is taking GM so long to address this clear, well documented safety threat" it has been at least a year since my vehicle was added to the recall. Should I not drive the vehicle? can the airbag be disabled" GM is not offering any timeframe for resolution nor are they providing guidance on what car owners should do while they finalize a solution. I do not have the money to pay for this out of pocket and do not have an alternative form of transportation.

"takata recall" I contacted both GM and the local GM dealership about recall 49151 and presently there is no remedy or fix supplied by General Motors for this recall. Seems that no decision has been made so we are all in limbo as to the recall.
