Quotes

"This leads to all kinds of negative consequences," KBB.com executive director Jack Nerad said in an email. "Consumers are disappointed when they first visit the dealership. Consumers then forget or decide to forget about getting the fix done later — dealers who once had no parts now have too many. It often results in a far less-than-perfect solution and ends with lots of unfixed vehicles still on the road."
"Based on NHTSA's open investigation, the agency will take appropriate action, including expanding the scope of the recall if warranted" an agency statement said
The agency is urging people in high-humidity areas such as Florida, Puerto Rico, Guam, Saipan, American Samoa, the U S Virgin Islands, Hawaii and "limited areas near the Gulf of Mexico in Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia and Louisiana" to get their cars repaired quickly
According to a statement sent to Autoblog by GM, the inaccurate entries on the earlier version came because, "The original NHTSA advisory incorrectly listed a group of 2002-2003 GM models that were part of a 2002 recall involving airbags made by other suppliers."
