 Description of the problemI was driving to work and on my way i heard this "click click" sound coming from the driver side dashboard. I didn't know what it was so and didn't see anything. Roughly about three or four more days go by and the annoying clicking started again and then one of the icon on the dashboard lights up. I opened the glove box to get out the manual. The manual had shown that it was the airbag light. I figured since i was due for a oil change at the dealership that would ask them about that light. On august 2, 2013 i went to the dealership to get the oil change. They told me that the lighted icon was about the airbag and said that it needed to be replaced. I asked "how come i need to replace a airbag that i haven't been used yet?" they said that spiral cable had a failure and that it needed to be replaced before i got a inspection sticker or else my car will fail the inspection. I asked the man if it was part of a recall because it didn't sound right to me that a airbag will need replacing even if it hasn't been used. They said no. So i made a appointment for august 24, 2013. I paid $380. 00 for the repair of a spiral cable. I wasn't happy at all. So now july 20, 2015 i get a recall notice about replacing the airbag and which i paid $380. 00 for back in 2013. My first question how do or who do i get my refund for replacing a defected airbag? Can you please direct me to the proper place to make a claim because i think that it's unfair for me to loose out on $380. I am very upset because i work very hard to save money. Thank you for your time.
