Complaint Description: the passenger's side airbag has a rattle from within the module. the dealer was unable to identify what the cause of the rattle is. i'm afraid that either the airbag won't properly deploy (like many other complaints) or that a projectile will accompany the deployment of the airbag and injure, or possibly kill, the passenger. dealer doesn't want to replace the module at no charge. *ak .
