1 - even with the ignition off you can still steer and brake with very little effort. I know, I've tested this. The Cruze performs extremely well in Forced Auto Stop scenerios.What if my ignition fails and my car shuts off then my axle brakes and I hit a wall and my airbag throws metal in my face?
Please, I wish, I could use the money!
The airbags were made by Takata, a Japanese company. Honda just recalled over 3 million of their cars world wide because of this same issue. Toyota is also recalling cars, but I don't know the number or geographic scope of their cars.I think we have to be careful not to jump to conclusions about GM. I doubt seriously that GM manufactures air bags...I am quite sure they're supplied by another vendor (not surprised if they aren't made in China). If so, I would not blame GM entirely for the problem even though I'm sure they were required to test them and should have found the problem. Of course, all of that is conjecture, but when they do my recall and replace my air bag, I'm going to ask them to tell me where the air bag was manufactured. When I Googled it, I found that some GM airbags are manufactured by Takata a company headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.
What's the return address on that FedEx envelope? I wonder if it came from the NHTSA or GM?So...I went to my dealership this morning and in short order they said my vehicle was not recalled. I showed them the letter I had gotten and the FedEx envelope where GM sent the documents. Still, my VIN was not shown for the recall. They did have the information on the recall, but said mine was not listed. Duh...I'm wondering if GM has a clue as to what they're doing???
I had the service writer give me a service ticket saying they checked the car
I have no clue what's going on.
