My airbag light has been on for 2 years. The dealer wants $100 just to look at it. I dont have funds so I have been checking for the recall to be sure. I was sent a notice from tk holdings Inc. And have filled out a claim but still dont know if I qualify. It showed on one website that there is a recall so I would rather be safe than sorry not to go the full route and be sure my truck's airbag is safe.
