Solstice 4-cyl

  • 6,300 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Pontiac Solstice. The contact stated that the OCS in the front passenger seat misclassified a 125 lbs. Adult as a child. As a result, the front passenger side air bag may not deploy in the event of a crash. The dealer and manufacturer stated that the only remedy would be to install an air bag on and off switch at the contact's expense. The vehicle has not been adequately repaired. The failure and current mileages were 6,300. Updated 05/26/09 updated 05/28/09.
