problem #1

May 062005

Silverado 2500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 76,000 miles
I was in a head on collision and received a compound fracture to my right femur bone, 2 black eyes and fractured ribs due to the inactivation of the drivers and passenger airbag modules, also the steering wheel bent resembling an airplane wheel. My wife checked the internet after the incident and found there was a recall for the airbag module on the year of my 2000 Chevrolet Silverado truck. We were never notified of this before the incident, but are currently receiving updates today. Do not understand why we were never notified of this. The truck is now in a storage yard and we are awaiting the response from the insurance adjustor.
