problem #2

Bought my car used in 2006, air bag light has come on a few years later, dealer won't fix it because I don't qualify for recall, tells me car came from Canada. Depending on where you check my VIN is also registered in the us. My car is now leaking coolant, one repair shop is sure it's the intake gasket, but I can't get this fixed either because it's not under recall yet I did my own research and found millions of people are getting the same problems. I sure wish I could qualify for at least one of the problems I'm having.
