There's a Bomb in my Car!!

Okay, there isn't exactly one... but there might be a potential failure that causes an explosion! I just got a recall notice in the mail stating that my car 'may' have a failure of the airbag inflator, should it be deployed in an accident. The inflator that fails, would explode, sending shrapnel through the interior of the car, basically killing anyone that it is supposed to protect. I'm supposed to get additional details in the future on when the parts become available, but let's hope that I have one of the non-exploding ones... or that better yet, I never have the need to find out!

@OneOfMany If you don't call them, they will call you - and keep calling til it gets scheduled! They might tell you to switch cars with them (they'll give you a rental) until the fix is done - so you are not driving around in this potentially dangerous vehicle. I've had friends who had a rental for nearly 2 months! I actually had 2 recalls . . . one on the passenger side - and later on the driver side. The first recall I had a rental for about 2 weeks. The second time I had to go in for something - can't remember - and they were able to do it on the same appointment - just took a little longer that day.

@much2say I'm tall, so I can't drive most cars. The last time they tried to give me a rental for a regular repair, I didn't even fit in the vehicle. I flat out demanded them to return my car and they complied. I drove there with no problem, so why were they thinking I would have one driving back? I will hope that it's a small repair. It doesn't seem like it would take all that much to replace.
