As I was driving my service airbag light came on. Unfortunately it was a weekend so the dealership was closed. The next morning I started looking up recalls on my car. The result was no recalls on my car but I found hundreds of complaints about the same issue I'm having. I took my concern to the Chevy dealer they diagnosed my car with a faulty airbag sensor in the passenger side seat the cost was $800 to replace I immediately called GM directly and expressed my concern. After two day and many phone calls to the man at GM that was handling my case they told me they couldn't help me. This is faulty product that is put in vehicles that we the consumers are driving our families around in. GM needs to get on the ball, recall these faulty parts before there is a fatality. My passenger side airbag does not work so I am unable to drive my car with a passenger. I am completely disgusted with the service and the product GM produces.

Vehicle displays a "service airbag" light and message in the message display. I was told that this will lead to a non-deployable airbag in case of an accident. Several people have the same problem. I was told that the sensor is defective.

Passenger air bag sensor did not detect a passenger in the seat, had to pay $$ to have this replaced. On star red light was also on then green on & off. On star said it a communication failed & with the accident notification. The car was checked at dealership same time the air bag sensor was checked. Then checked 2 more times since. The dealership could not find the problem & told us they would have to take dash & console out to find problem at our expense & our expense for a diagnostic again. We now have the car at a different GM dealership that has a testing instrument for the antenna and. It charging us for the diagnostic. We bought this car off show room at dealership for our daughter to have a dependable safe car to get her through high school & college. No the extended warranty hasn't covered any of this.

I have taken my car into the dealership and had them check it out to see what is wrong and for $100 diagnosis charge. They told me that it needs a new passenger airbag sensor...on the repair ticket it is stated as dtc B0081 passenger seat problem. I have around 55,000 miles and no warranty left. Researched this issue and found many types of GM Chevy models with the same issue. This cost should not be on the consumer and should be investigated. If you can help please email me at [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

My passenger side airbag does not recognize when I have a passenger that meets the weight requirements, I have read several forums of same problems and can't seem to get Chevy to realize this is a malfunction and a safety issue, I think that a recall should be made and this should not be owners expense, but my local dealer says it is. This posses a threat to my passengers and could cause malfunction in any of my airbags.

The dealer inspected the vehicle and advised her that the vehicle was safe to drive out of town. The dealer was unable to confirm if the air bags would deploy if the vehicle was involved in a crash. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer four times for the failure. On the fourth visit, the air bag modular was replaced. The failure mileage was 5,500 and the current mileage was 9,600.
