problem #2

S-10 Pickup 4WD 6-cyl

  • 130,267 miles


I was going through a green light at an intersection, when another vehicle ran the red light at a high speed. The vehicle hit the front center of my bumper and the airbags did not deploy and the seat belts did not hold. I was headed South, and the other vehicle was headed West, when it hit me. It turned me into the westward direction. When I came to, my head was hanging out the window and my son(who was in the passengers seat )was on top of me. He was thrown across the console, our seat belts did not hold. I was transported to the er by ambulance. If need be I have photos of the accident scene...updated 09-03-14 updated 09/10/2014

S-10 Pickup

  • 37,000 miles
At 37000 miles my S-10 pickup started displaying a airbag warning light on the dash. The light is not constant and appears more on warm days. Being concerned I researched this problem om the internet. I found that this is a very common problem with this model of GM vehicle. I contacted GM to see if this was a warranty or recall issue and they stated no. With the air bag light on it is my understanding that the airbags will not deploy as long as the warning light is being displayed. This is a safety issue that needs to be corrected. Another problem GM just ignores.
