Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Vehicle was having numerous issue's when I originally bought it under "GM certified" warranty. The vehicle when a passenger exits the vehicle after driving will keep the airbag sensor engaged and left on. The car will continue to beep for the passenger to buckle up the seat belt until you either stop and turn off the car or buckle the seat. This is without any weight on the vehicle. The airbag will also randomly turn off and on while a passenger is sitting in the vehicle during turn's and other common driving techniques. I have had three GM dealers look at the issue and they have failed to diagnose and fix the problem. I have been notified that they are pulling a code out of the ECM that they don't even know what it means... GM has failed to fix or offer a fix for this issue and I am worried that if these continue to happen if I am in a accident with a passenger my passenger airbag may not deploy because of the sensor issue. It has been checked for faulty wiring etc all have come up negative.

Have owned vehicle since Oct. 2008. Approx 1yr ago in 2009, started to experience airbag problems. Adult person of sufficient weight will sit in front passenger seat. At random points of car ride, passenger side airbag indicator will show "off" and car will chime while displaying message "airbag off" even though a person is sitting in the seat. Also, randomly when driving "service airbag" will show on dash and indicator light will show "on" when seat is not occupied. Contacted manufacturer and was told VIN is not included on airbag recall NHTSA # 07V146000 despite experiencing those issues.

Passenger right front air bag light stays on. Computer diagnosis indicates faulty air bag sensing system. Recall issued id# 07V146000 but does not cover 2007 Pontiac G6. GM refuses to fix at no cost because vehicle is beyond warranty.
