I received a recall in May 2016. I jus got off the phone with norman frede Chevrolet and they told me they do not have the parts to fix my Chevrolet.

Takata recall - received a recall notification a year ago. Contacted supreme Chevrolet where Tahoe was purchased and they did not have the parts to repair. Got notice from tk holding this week and called supreme again and they can not get the parts to repair and told me to contact tk holdings for resolution. I've called the phone numbers on the notice but there is never anyone available and they just say call back. Please contact me to resolve this recall issue before there is an accident.

I received a recall notice in May 2016 telling me my airbags were defective and being recalled, however there is no remedy available. There is still no remedy available over a year later. I am being told my vehicle is still safe to drive. I know that, it is just not safe in an accident - if I know when I will get in an accident I would have won a lottery by now. This is not acceptable. The airbags need to be replaced immediately!!
