Takata recall. There has not been an air bag incident with this vehicle but it is driven daily and feel unsafe with a dangerous weapon in my face every time it is operated. I have not received any notification from Chevrolet that the air bags are recalled. Notice came from NHTSA. Contact with local Chevrolet dealer told me to call a toll number at GM but they told me that they had not received any money from takata so they could do nothing.

Takata recall - it's been 3 years since I received my notice of recall on the airbags in my 2009 Silverado. Now that my truck is older this concerns me even more that no fix has been made available. I want to go on record that this is unacceptable practice and needs to be corrected asap. Also my dash on the pax side is cracked at the airbag cut out, which Iżve read that this is also a common problem and a huge safety issue for the rider. Please please make these parts available soon. Thank you

Takata recall, I am still waiting for the recall to replace the airbags on my truck. As you probably know it has been at least two years that we received the notice of the recall. I was just at airbag recall.com and it tells me only the passigner airbag is to be replaced because of the propellant will degrade over time and could rupture and cause body harm and even fatal injury. So why does not the drivers airbag need to be changed as well? I know this isn't the only complaint that you folks have received on this matter, and as days go by we the public are in danger each time we use the vehicle, tis a sad situation.

Called classic Chevy in sugarland a year ago asking about getting the airbags replaced. Was told I would be called when the parts get in. Called again today and was given the same answer. How can this be a safety issue if the parts are never in stock?

I first received recall information in the mail pertaining to the airbags on my vehicle at the end of 2017. Around the same time the service airbag light on my dashboard appeared and has remained displayed since. I have periodically checked whether a remedy to the recall has been established, but to date there has not been one. I am now seeing commercials for attorney services regarding injuries due to defective airbags in vehicles in my make, model, and year. Seeing as my service airbag light is already lit up, I would like to avoid an injury to myself or a passenger in my vehicle.

I find out that I have a recall for my truck for the airbags. The Chevrolet recall personnel stated that there were no results to fix this issue. I can't sell this vehicle with a issue with the airbag. How long will it take General Motors to make a decision on a repair for this problem? they've already had since 2016 to make a decision. The answer that I was given is not good enough. I want this fixed.
