Ford airbag broken - what now?
The check airbag light is flashing on my '93 Ford E-150 conversion van. The dealer tells me that it will cost $750 to replace the air bag assembly, and that by law I have to do it. The van has never been in an accident, and the only explanation for it's failure is that it's "bad". I suppose it's hoping too much to think Ford would pay for the repair, but it is highly disappointing to have to sink big bucks into this thing, when I don't think I caused it to fail and I wouldn't have expected it to "wear out". Has anybody experienced this failure? Any alternatives? In this area only the Ford dealers will touch an air bag system. Has anybody had success complaining through the usual channels (Ford, NHTSA, Attny. General, etc.)? Any input is appreciated.
