Takata recall I was notified in July of 2016 by GMC of a possible issue with takata airbags. I was told there was no current solution and to wait. I waited one year (2017) and called again and was told nothing has changed. I did that again in 2018 as well and was told there were no updates. Around the time of my second call in 2018, I started getting airbag warning lights and message from the vehicle. I contacted GM corporate in regards to the issue assuming it has to do with the recall. I was told by GM corporate that in no way would they be willing or able to assist or pay for any of the cost of getting this resolved and that I would be required to everything myself. I might be able to get reimbursed if the recall finally went through, but if the recall went through after I sold the vehicle they would not reimburse me. I contacted a local dealership that was not willing to help with costs either and was told it would probably be $300 to diagnose the problem plus costs of repair. I've also attempted to sell the vehicle but have had buyers back out due to the open recall or offered me below market value for the truck because of the recall. Thereby causing as of right now "permanent diminished value" I personally feel like GM is dragging their feet knowing that if they can wait long enough the number of vehicles will drop off the roads causing the repairs to be cheaper.

Takata air bag, I have had a recall notice for over two years. They keep telling me it's safe to drive, if it's so safe to drive why is there a recall? does someone in my family have to be killed to have something done, my wife will not ride in this truck now.

Takata recall contacted dealer about recall and was told "hasn't been determined what parts are defective and parts are not available." Really?? so, I'm assuming all production of new vehicles have stopped since they don't have parts available.
