Airbag light on airbags disabled safety concern vehicle is not as potentially as safe as it was designed to be. The SDM (airbag module) has water intrusion and caused corrosion inside the SDM and caused the circuit board to burn out no fuses were blown which is a concern as well because the board had burn components from the water intrusion. GM had a previous recall on this problem it appears this vehicle had the recall as it had the jute from the carpet removed from this area above the SDM this recall was purposively a Canada recall 09270C - material over sensing and diagnostic module I talked to GM about this they will do nothing for this even though they know of a problem this is a real safety concern not only for the airbag but for the module burning up the circuit board as well potential fire in the vehicle I would like it fixed by the manufacture

Takata recall. GM says on NHTSA web site that they consider my truck safe to drive all they did was turn the air bag off. Which makes a key safety component inoperable this is not exceptable. And they still can't replace the inflaiter, I am forced to drive an unsafe vehicle this is also unexceptable. My question is - is this an exceptable remedy even if temporary to the NHTSA. I feel as though GM has replaced one potential tragedy with another. I am considering contacting a lawyer. My vehicle is not always stationary

Takata recall- dash is cracking in several places surrounding the passenger airbag. Started when the truck had less than 70,000 miles. (truck now has ~109,000) aside from the dash cracking on a fairly low mileage and very well kept and maintained vehicle, the safety fears stem from the possibility of pieces of dash flying apart and striking passengers if the airbags are ever to deploy. Or in a sudden stop, etc... I have seen several complaints about this issue. I can upload photos if necessary.

Takata recall date is May 27, 2016 yet I just received a letter in mid August informing me that Chevrolet is further delaying addressing the problem. The danger of serious injury and fatality from these airbags is well documented, my truck is over 7 years old in an extremely hot climate (Texas--116 degrees recently) which increases risk and yet Chevrolet is delaying--doubtless in hopes more vehicles will age out and reduce their costs--despite the risk of death of their customers this delay entails. Please insist Chevrolet quickly move to address this potentially fatal risk ideally prioritizing vehicles that are older and in hotter climates since that seems to the highest risk groups. I am disgusted with General Motors and my next vehicle will be a Tesla because Tesla accept responsibility and address safety issues without delay. Please aggressively require this recall on a dangerous product whose manufacturer (takata) has admitted the problem. The necessity has been clearly established in other cases and Chevrolet's only possible reason for delay is that they prioritize avoiding expense to correct their mistake over customer's lives.
