Lets start from the beginning when I first bought the car my air bag light and clock light will go in and out over bumps more the air bag light. Now and still the air bag light on dash is on and passenger air bag light above the clock says off when someone is sitting in the seat. 2nd my tail lights I go threw them like water. 3rd the thing in the passenger side back right next to the tire every winter I have a problem with wires or the whole thing braking. 3rd its says good gas mileage ya right. The gas gauge doesn't work proper ran outta gas a few times. I have replace battery and spark plugs now I having engine problems with engine light on the engine is riding rough my whole car is shaking I can not go to speed even when the gas petal is to the floor. I see a recall and now its closed the recall says degraded connection between ignition coil spark plug boots and spark plugs. Pretty sure that's the cause. My body paint is coming off. It started coming off not even 2 months after I bought it. Sometimes the radio and clock with air passenger light shuts off and will not come back on until I shut the car off and back on. The onstar stop working all together. The defrost doesn't work to well unless high. My overall of this car is a money hog to keep fixing parts.

My mother swerved to keep from hitting a vehicle entering the highway. She ended up in the oncoming traffic lane. Her car was hit by a pick up truck, spun and was hit again by the truck. Traffic was not heavy and it was on a rural road. Her air bags did not deploy in spite of multiple strikes. We will never know if her car cut off due to an ignition problem or it was faulty air bags. She sustained catastrophic injuries including a broken neck, broken back, broken wrists, broken pelvis, broken leg, broken ribs and chest injuries. She was air lifted to a trauma center. She died on 6/9/09. The air bags never deployed which could have helped reduce her injuries.
