1996 Buick Riviera Owner Comments

I have a Buick rivera 1996, and the air bag on the driver side has exploded once, and now the light is on again. There is a leak of water in the back seat on the floor on the passenger side, and now the air bag light, the traction light are one again. I know there were Buick's recalled because of driver side airbags exploding, however, when I called GM they said not on the rivera. Now, all of these are Buick cars, and I am having the same problem with this. This has put my life and that of my passangers in danger, because if that airbag deployed while I was driving on the interstate, we would have been killed or badly hurt. I would like something done about this. It has caused me constant mental stress just worrying about this thing deploying again. Please help me. I am a professional business woman and I am 41 years of age. I would like General Motors to repair the problem on my car. Please contact me.
