Takata recall I received a notice in the mail recently from GM that said I needed to make a service appointment to get the passenger airbag inflator replaced. It said to go to my.GM.com/recalls and enter my VIN. I did that and it showed two recalls: One for the airbag and an older recall for the control arms. I called ourisman GMC in alexandria (www.chevroletofalexandria.com/) and spoke with von, who said he was a service manager. He said that I did not have any outstanding recalls. I told him I had gotten a card and that my.GM.com/recalls said I had a recall. He said that the fix had not been figured out and that's why I was not showing up in their database. This is nonsense - other people with the same car have had this fix done. He refused to look in my.GM.com/recalls and kept repeating that he could only use his system. I then called route 1 Buick GMC (www.route1buickgmc.com/) and spoke with a service person named diana. She gave me the same story but was at least more polite about it. This recall has been outstanding for 18 months and the suspension recall has been outstanding for five years. They have refused to help me. I could get into an accident tomorrow and be killed by my car's airbag. Neither person was interested in researching or attempting to figure out why there was a mismatch. This is nothing short of negligence. I got a recall notice in the mail and it is also reflected on safercar.gov.

George's imports in Kansas City, mo states that they do not have the tool required to test for corrosion on my transverse links, and therefore, cannot perform the recall repair.

Hi, I had recall 15031 performed on my car in may of 2012. The recall is for the front lower control arm, which due to corrosion from road salt can shear during driving and create a dangerous situation. Since my car was sold under the Saab brand, this recall was performed by GM as Saab had gone bankrupt before the recall service was performed. My issue concern is this: Despite 7 years in the North East prior, the mechanic deemed my control arms good enough, and sprayed the control arms with rust proofing rather than replacing. If you know about corrosion/ rust, you know it cannot be stopped by covering it up. Once it has started it'll rust the metal despite being covered up. Also I have noticed when changing from summer to winter tires, that the rust proofing sprayed on is flaking off. I am concerned in the coming years an unsafe condition will arise that the same as it had when Subaru/ GM issued the recall. Thank you for your time, [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
