My "service air bag" light came on. I went immediately to the dealer and had them check it out. I was told it was a faulty sensor buried deep within the passenger seat. The cost of repair is $700. None of the passenger restraints/air bags will operate I'm told as it does not show a passenger is present in the seat. I have done nothing to create this problem...it's GM's faulty sensor. My children are no longer safe in the front seat...ridiculous. I've asked GM to repair and they won't.

The head restraints required by fmvss202 are causing excessive neck pain after more than 30 minutes in the vehicle. As all cars must now have severe angles on head restraints, I can't find a vehicle that allows me to sit up straight without bending my neck forward.this horrible regulation has forced me to modify the restraint in order to use the vehicle. The neck pain is an urgent safety problem.
