My 2003 Tahoe lt has a defective air bag. The light on my panel displayed this when my car had approximately 80k miles. I reported this to carriage motors in temecula, CA. They refused to have this repaired at Chevrolet factory cost. I again turned in my Tahoe, today, may 11, 2009, and the shop manager frank spizer refused to have this fixed but instead offered me 20% off a repair cost of $699. 00 I refused this discount as I firmly believe that since my 2003 Tahoe has never been in an accident, that there should be no reason for the air bag to fail like this. I want for gm to pay for this and to issue a recall to all Tahoe owners who have this same malady. The manager of the authorized Chevrolet repair service at carriage motors is frank spizer, (951) 694-6060.

While driving my 99 Tahoe down a 4 lane road, a drunk had pulled out infront of me. I had slammed on my brakes and swerved to avoid him but still hit him pretty hard in his rear quarter panel. As a result of the accident, I had suffered a double hematoma to my brain and had brain surgery to stay alive. My complaint with my Tahoe is 1) my airbag in my steering wheel did not deploy. I think if it did, my injury would have been avoided. 2) I question the stopping ability if my anti dive front brakes. I was on the brakes hard with the vehicle nosing down but I think my stopping distance should have been shorter.

The vehicle was involved in a frontal collision, and none of the air bags deployed.
It had been raining slightly and as I attempted to use an exit ramp from the highway my antilock brakes failed I skidded and spun and ended up hitting the concrete barrier which did not make my airbags deploy even though the car hit hard enough to bend the frame of the front end by an inch and a half.

Front collision at 25-30 mph, and neither airbag deployed, consumer suffered minor injuries.
On November 11,2000 I had a head on collision (not my fault) and the airbags didn't deploy. Then on sept 1,02 we had a accident on interstate 95 that we totaled the Tahoe and the body shop called gm since the airbags didn't deploy again. Mr. Lattermere from gm callled me and told me over the phone after I describe the accident to him that , as he drew a picture on paper, "that the air bags shouldn't have deployed". I find it very difficult that a person can draw a picture and tell me this. I would like for your organization to inspect this vechile and retrieve the computer information and let me know what you think. Gm sent an "indepedent" inspector out to do a report but I have nothing from him or gm on the finding. I have left messages for mr. Lattermere to call me to no avail.
