I got the same notice this week (2008 9-3 Sportcombi).
OK. I get that defending the gov't and GM is about like promoting transgender Latinos at a Trump rally. But.
The rant seems oblivious to actual news and facts.
5.5 million vehicles have been recalled for problem Takata airbags. 5 1/2 million. The gov't is forcing this. Hardly a "silent" act. GM is even fixing Saabs they didn't make. Doesn't feel like "no one seems to care".
I too wish this were instant, but I get that it's going to take dealers a while to get over 5 million cars in and replace airbags.
It is impressive we live in a society where gov't can compel manufacturers to recall decade old products and fix them. On this large a scale.
Takata does appear to have some explaining to do. Reports indicate they knew of problems years ago.
Rant on rant over.
