If you expect people to read your posts and answer them you might want to write like an adult and use punctuation, capitalization, etc. That crap is just too big a pain to decipher.

That aside, No. You issue doesn't meet the criteria for the Lemon law.

Honestly, is an airbag light that big of a deal to complain about? If you were in a crash with that rig you'd survive without the bags assistance. But i can't imagine what spring would be attached to the airbag system in the steering wheel, unless they are unrelated an it just happened to unplug the bag and wheel controls.

Anger and frustration affect communication, I would be extremely upset, all I can say is... once fixed right, you will love it. Mine had a vacumn pump that would rattle. I jokingly asked them if it was the F-350 rattle, because the F-250 did not rattle. They changed out the vacumn pump, rattle remained. Conclusion, not having a vacumn brake system the system did not have a container that held vacumn...so F-350's would have a minor vacumn pump noise...slightly off post, point is these trucks are new, they have no history of certain parts failing, hence no stock. At this point, patience will pay off... these trucks are awesome, you won't be disappointed. 8,000 + miles, other than the vacumn pump education... no hint of problems...

I'm a little scared to post in this thread. Better make sure all my T's are dotted and I's are crossed.
