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.

2009 Pontiac Solstice Owner Comments

My Solstice is part of the ignition recall id # 102546 - electrical system:ignition:switch. During the repair of the ignition switch replaced Oct 13 2014.and after the car was brought out to me I noticed the passenger air bag sensor light had came on. I notified the dealer that the light was on they ran a diagnoses and determined that the airbag sensor GM module kit had failed in the passenger seat and that neither side airbag will deploy should I have an accident. I'm told by the dealer that it will cost me $900 to replace part number 19124219. My response was that I would be contact GM about this as it was not an issue before the repair of the ignition recall. After contacting GM they contacted the dealer and said that they would be willing to pay a part of the cost, how much I was never told. As with others that have report the same problem, my complaint is that the faulty ignition has a direct affect on the proper operation and safety of the airbags. Not to mention that it will not pass a state inspection until this is repaired. Had I not brought the car in for the faulty ignition I would have been able to get it inspected and been able to continue to drive it. As of now if I don't pay the fee for this repair the vehicle is rendered useless and unsafe. And my investment is worthless except for parts I feel GM should be responsible for the replacement of the faulty sensor at their cost. I have read in several forums that this is a known problem and that something as easy as placing a knee on the seat can cause the sensor to fail this is a design flaw and GM needs to take responsibility before someone is killed in an accident because the air bags did not deploy!
