On 9/22/08 we took our vehicle to gregg young chevy in omaha ne with complaint of the passenger air bag did not register passenger. The could not duplicate and nothing was done. Again on 4/10/10 we took the vehicle in again with same complaint. We were told again could not duplicate at this time, no problem found scanned, no codes. No bulletins found, system working as designed. Then again 9/28/11 we took it in again and complained the service air bag light is on intermittently. They replaced the pps module. We had to pay labor and factory warranty deductible. I see by you recall page there was a recall #07v344000 on the passenger sensor and or calibration. If there was a recall why were we charged to replace a default by the maker? now here we are in Dec 2016 and now we are having the same problem again. The air bag does not always register a passenger and if it does, it goes back and for stating air bag on and air bag off and the dash warning light to service air bag goes on and off and then we get a read out on the dash stating to service air bag. Same problem yet again. How may times can the sensor or calibration go wrong. We called gregg young and they want $130 just to look at the problem. What are our options? I don't feel this is a wear and tear problem and we paid for it once already and feel we should not have based on the recall listed. Any information you could provide would be helpful. Thank you for considering our safety a priority.

Beginning last year the passenger airbag indicator began to not work properly. I had the service codes checked and there was no code for the repeated warning light to service air bag. Now the problem has become worse. When passengers of any weight are in the seat the indicator and service lights will come on randomly. Most time my family is not protected by the airbag due to this issue. It appears the same issue happend to the previous model year and a recall was done. Not for this model. This needs to be investigated and a solution created by chevorlet.

Driving down the interstate and warning light came on that passenger airbag was not on which was odd since my 250 lb husband was in the seat. Never has worked right since. It says no one in seat and air bag not on when there is someone in seat or visa versa. I believe this is a huge safety issue more so now that my teenage daughter is driving this vehicle.
