NHTSA recall number: Opens new window takes away from VIN lookup section> 15V324 recall date: May 28, 2015 manufacturer recall number: N150817. Some front passenger airbag inflators may experience an alteration over time, which could lead to overaggressive combustion in the event of an air bag deployment. This condition could create excessive internal pressure when the air bag is deployed, which could result in the body of the inflator rupturing upon deployment. Safety risk: In the event of an inflator rupture, metal fragments could pass through the air bag cushion material, which may result in injury or death to vehicle occupants. Remedy: Dealers will replace the front passenger air bag inflator, free of charge. Recall status: Recall incomplete. Remedy not yet available 1.5 years later and still no remedy available" is this one part of the takata recall that I just saw on the nbc news"

Takata recall. I think it is ridiculous that something this important has yet to have a fix available. I am not in the financial position to stop driving this vehicle and purchase another while still paying for one that is unsafe to drive. Our family uses all seating available in the vehicle and that makes it unsafe to drive ! I would like permission to have the defective part removed if there is no fix available. And according to all there is no fix and no date that they expect one.

Takata recall: Per dealership, 8/12/16 unable to make appointment to fix the recall number #49152. They have no idea when the parts will be in. Says it could tke up to one year!!!! we were in an accident with this vehicle. The truck was sandwiched between two cars, the airbag did not deploy at 35 mph., he was injured. After vehicle came back from bodyshop with $7000 worth of damage fixed, airbag light came on and has stayed on. We use this truck for our contracting business, so is it safe like GM recall letter states" I called GM back on July 1st, 2016, asked if there was a takata recall on this truck, I was told no. I told them the airbag light was on so why not recall based on other 2007 trucks? part 573 safety recall report given to the NHTSA by GM clearly shows that all 2007 GMC Sierra were to be recalled in area B, which is where I live.. high humidity. Memo was submitted May 27th, 2016. I just got my recall letter yesterday, August 11th. When I called GM to complain about that, and ask why the delay, I was hung up on. I want justice for airbags that do not deploy when they should.. what about we folk? there are many of us.the airbag light is still on< and now there are no parts to fix the problem. Our mechanic says when the light is on, the bags will not work. Great. No rental car from GM and no way to fix the problem. Should we not go to work" I doubt enterprise would like a contractor to use their rental truck as a "real" work truck like we do. Hence the problem.

The dash board of my vehicle has cracks in it. More and more cracks are beginning to develop over the airbag. I am worried about the airbag deploying with sharp plastic pieces pointing at it. I think this is a hazard to all drivers. Every GM truck/Tahoe from 2007-2013 (that I have seen) have these ugly and dangerous cracks in them.

I have cracks on my dashboard of my truck. Both on the drivers side and passanger. I'm afraid that if I have an accident that peices of the plastic could harm me and my grandchild. Also could the cracks get bigger and form a hole in my dash? that does not seem very safe.

Cracks around air bag in dash passenger side, sharp plastic parts could injure occupants in case of air bag deployment. This is common on most 07 GM pickups. The dealers will not repair this.. the plastic is brittle and has sharp edges.
