Service air bag notice displayed, red air bad warning idiot light on and the passenger air bag indicator light shows off even though a passenger was in the seat. Tried powering the car off and on with same result. This is a major safety issue is the passenger is not protected while riding in the vehicle. I have since read that many reports of the same issue have been reported and no safety recalls have been issued.

My Solstice is part of the ignition recall. Passenger air bag sensor light has been on since Aug. 2014. Ignition replaced today 10/8/14. Dealership says that I have a faulty airbag sensor in the passenger seat and that neither side airbag will deploy should I have an accident. First I'm told it will cost me $800 to replace. My response was that I would be contacting GMC about this. Then I'm told to hold off that they would put their "GMC calculator" on it and let me know what GMC says. A few minutes later I get a call saying that GMC would cover $500 of the $800 charge. My complaint is that the faulty ignition has a direct affect on the proper operation of the airbags. This car is only 5 years old. In 2010 I had to have the ignition replaced "while it was still under warranty" because the car wouldn't turn off after turning the ignition to off. The second faulty ignition has now affected the safe operation of my airbags which, should I have an accident, the driver airbag will not even open. I feel GMC should be responsible for the replacement of the faulty sensor. Should something happen to me before this is accomplished, I have escalated this information to my family and legal counsel.

My father-in-law, [xxx] received a recall notice in March to have his ignition replaced by GM due to faulty switches. He has gone in monthly since then and the dealer says they don't have the parts. In the meantime he is scared to drive the car because of the possible problem. He is 84 years old and feels like GM is giving him the runaround. The dealer is valley auburn Buick GMC in auburn, wa. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
