I have called (877.432.7841) every time I received a notice of our airbag recall. They can never get in contact with a dealer in my area to get this fixed. I have called and been put on hold 3 times for an extended time and am told to 'call back later'. if this is an urgent recall and the airbag is defective I would like this remedied asap as this is a family vehicle my wife and kids ride
