    That sucks. From what I've read this has been an issue since 2014 so one would think they would have corrected the problem in the 2015 models. :/
    I'd call Chevy and check your VIN just to be certain your car is affected.

I called the dealer today and their rental car office was closed but they'll set me up with a rental car tomorrow. All I need to do is bring in my registration (because it has the VIN on it) and sign a few documents, one of which promising that I will not drive my car while I have the rental vehicle.

    All the Honda dealers are aware of the situation, but I was told to call customer service back if the dealer gave me any trouble.
    Wow that's awesome. I just googled it and Ford isn't providing free rentals. Not even for "high-risk" vehicles like mine.

    A 10th victim was just killed by the Takata airbag

    Teenage Girl Killed by Exploding Takata Air Bag in Texas

    The girl, from Richmond, Texas, was driving a 2002 Honda Civic in Fort Bend County, Texas, when the car rear-ended another vehicle and the air bags went off, said Sheriff's Deputy Danny Beckworth, who investigated the crash. Shrapnel hit the girl's neck, killing her, said Beckworth, who has not yet determined how fast her car was going.

    The crash, Beckworth said, was "moderate" and wouldn't have caused any serious injuries if not for the air bag. "Everybody would have walked away," he said.
    She was only in a fender bender and had it not been for the airbag she would have lived. It's just so sad.

    If you haven't already, please go check your VIN to see if your airbag inflator is part of the recall.

    Here's a list of the manufacturers involved in the recall:

    BMW
    FCA (Chrysler)
    Daimler Trucks North America
    Daimler Vans USA LLC
    Ford
    General Motors (GM)
    Honda
    Mazda
    Mercedes-Benz
    Mitsubishi
    Nissan
    Ram
    Subaru
    Toyota
    Volkswagen (VW)

    I have a Honda too and it's on the driver's side airbag (on certain cars it's only the passenger airbag).

    You can check here: www.safercar.gov/checkforrecalls -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)
    It lets you check by VIN or Make and Model
