    Where's my Recalled Airbag Replacement !!!!

    So GM thinks that they can wait us out..hmmm

    Garage queen 2007 Silverado LTZ with 65K miles. Truck is is great shape so no desire to trade or sell off at this time. But if I wanted to, what are the chances that my resale or trade-in value plummets when the safety recall hasn't been implemented. All the time, the clock keeps ticking on the deployment cannister and it's inevitable demise .

    My family and I have either worked for or owned nothing but GM vehicles, But I do not have faith in the current company and I fear my next purchase will not be in the family. So sad...

    That is all....

    Why are you blaming GM ?

    There is a worldwide problem with takata supplied components. Ford , Mitsubishi , Toyota ect ect are all in the same boat


    All you can do is book your vehicle in and wait

    Re: Where's my Recalled Airbag Replacement !!!!

    Maybe it's before my morning coffee, but I sense a bit of hostility towards my post. I cannot ascertain if those of you that commented are affected by the recall or not.

    I understand the safety, logistical as well as the "financial" aspect of this issue. After doing a lot of research, I have come to the conclusion that the "financial" considerations have dominated this aspect. It appears that GM may take the road that paying out a few million here or there to cover any potential injuries/deaths as they occur makes more sense to them than fixing the millions of defective products. Of course, they deny their airbags are defective based on their research.

    BTW, I have been "scheduled" for this fix for over 3 years since the recall came out.

    I do not hate GM (I have of 50 years experience with their products). I do see that other manufacturers are able to comply with this recall. Yes, there are millions of airbags that are affected, but is a Honda, Toyota or Dodge airbag worth anymore that a GM one? Yet they seem to have product. I understand that certain geographical environments may get preference.

    But 3 years?...yet they have enough airbags for new vehicles. I sense that they can sweep the issue away on us older aged vehicles assuming we should have bought a new one by now and it would be a mute issue. Sorry GM, I like my truck, it runs great and you don't make this style anymore.

    Of course that is my opinion.

    With that, I will invite constructive comments and I await to see how GM handles this issue for me in the future.

    Thank you...

    Like I said it's takata not GM that's the problem

    There are literally millions of airbags to replace worldwide and not all of them will be the same

    Yours is taking a long time I agree

    My wifes took over 8 months to replace
