Then, when that happened to me, I went back into the dealership service department and they admitted that I did return and report the air bag light but they did not know how much it would cost to fix until I sign a work order starting at no less than $2,000. I took it to the other Dodge Dealer and they fixed it for $1850. I went to Small Claims Court and settled out of court for $750. I was surprised that they took it as far as they did. I've dealt with this Service Dept for 40 years.

Sorry to hear that you're having this issue with your Sierra, I would also recommend having your dealership diagnose what's going on. As this is a safety related concern. Vanessa GM Customer Service

Best Answer

Well Vanessa, this will be the LAST GMC I ever buy. The best advertising is word - of - mouth. As I;ve had nothing but problems with this vehicle since I purchased it, that has cured me of any Gmc vehicles in the future.

Same here, no more GMC or Chevy HHR. Both have been nothing but problems and now the new recall on my HHR.
