Takata recall my 2007 Chevy Aveo on 9/ 10 2016 wen I started it up the passenger side air bag light saying that the airbag is off! has just come on and will not go off! it is on every time I start the car and wile driving it with or with out a passenger in it. This from what I have read on line means the air bag is bad and will not deploy or will deploy for no reason there needs to be a recall I have read many post from others with this same problem in the 2007 Chevy Aveo please recall this car before someone is killed!!!

Dashboard caught fire whilst car was parked for hours in secure parking lot. Car fire was put off by firefighters who cut battery and cables broke windows in order to stop fire. Now car does not turn on at all and dashboard center is completely melted.

The "passenger air bag" light on the dash stays on and won't go off.also the check engine light goes on and off and I had the code checked and they said is is something with the fuel.I have heard other complaints about the air bag light and it might not be deployed in an accident.why does general motor have to wait until people get killed in their cars and have a class action lawsuit filed before they do the right thing"why don't they recall these cars and fix the problems with electrical, air bags and other manufacturing defects" my car only has about 21,000 miles on it.Chevrolet should be ashamed to sell lemons and show total disregard for their customers lives.

In June, 2011 my sister was driving a Aveo and clipped a road sign on the right front bumper, continued to go straight over to left down an embankment of approx. 6 ft and 40-45 mph and hit steering wheel so hard that it broke steering wheel and busted her heart killing her instantly. I went to school for automotive and know a lot about cars and this accident makes no sense. I took pics of everything. Even though the airbag was out it didn't appear to have inflated completely and the clothing my sister had on she should've had some sort of cuts, burns, abbrasions, but instead nothing but a busted heart. She also hit the windshield with her forehead. I saw no sort of residue on or in the car as evidence that the airbag did what it was supposed to. She sustained injuries common to those injuries sustained from a car not equipped with an airbag. I was even going to see if Aveo came with a black box and to pull it off and have it analyzed, but the car got sent to junk yard before I could do that. No conclusion to this whole ordeal and this great loss we've suffered will ever bring her back, but knowing what I do about cars, I have so many questions and really want this looked into. I have Inc reports pics of the scene with and without the car, as well as the car by itself panel for panel pics of the car. I know the Aveo is not one of the vehicles named on the news, but there are other similar cars with the same issues.
