    been a couple of months and no change. I initially thought that it was because I hadn't
    done any expressway driving. Then I had an emergency 400 mile trip and still no change.

    Is there suppose to be coolant everywhere, and broken screw caps (plastic rivets?) on my car after the battery enhancement too?

    After the dealer put 87 octain in my car, and drained the tank, then refiled.. now i have this.

    So i just got home and looked under the hood. And this is what i see.
    Coolant drops everywhere, on my garage floor, and under the hood.
    And it looks like every plastic screw (rivets?) have broken heads on them now.
    This is why i did NOT want to ever do this recall.

    Default a rattle on an airbag Customer Satisfaction Program

    I called my volt Adviser and my Volt needs the check for a rattle on an airbag.

    What does the a rattle on an airbag sound like? Is my hearing so bad I am missing it? Anyone experience it?

    I hear a rattle on my 2013 in the front passenger side upper dash area. Sound like it's coming from the area around or down in front of the front right little tweeter speaker. It doesn't happen all the time, just when the interior is really hot, like when it sits out on the hot blacktop all day. After about 20-30 minutes on the road, the rattling stops. This has happened about three times since I've had it (only about 10 days).

    I hear the same passenger rattle as mentioned above. Annoying but waiting to lump it in with a dealer visit at some point.

    This customer satisfaction campaign 12020B is for the driver's airbag in the sterring wheel not the passeneger side.
    The airbag delivery module may have been incorrectly mounted in the steering wheel from factory and needs to be removed and inspected and if necessary have a small felt patch "relocated" to its correct location.
    This does not affect the performance of the airbag itself, but might prevent a squeak or rattle in that area.

    I in every way have the EXACT same issue in every way on my 2013 under the exact same circumstances. Also I notice the glove box rattles every now and then on my car. When was your Volt made? You can see in my sig that i'm D3079 made in July of this year.

    I was extremely pleased with Dyer Motors in Vero Beach, even though they did not sell me the car. There was an extremely dificult to find rattle, and although it took a number of times to find where it came from, they never responded poorly or acted unprofessionally. There are good and bad ones, just had to complement a good one. It sounded like it came from the front right of the car, but would up being a small packing piece on part of the frame behind the front door that had not been removed at manufacture.

    I think its time this sticky get removed. No longer an issue.

    And when a moderator notices this, I think we could get rid of, or move, most of the stickies. Its getting crowded, and the important issue stickies (like the repeated 'doh, my car aint making it 40+ miles anymore cause its cold' thread) are being missed.

    Let's clean it up, please
