Massive Air Bag recall (leave it to the government to make a website that wont load properly)

It was on the tv news, that this is the biggest auto recall in history. Lots of defective air bags that can injure a person.
They said go to www.safercar.gov. Since my old Chevy truck has an air bag, I thought I better take a look. That website refused to let me select my vehicle. It just hangs and keeps repeating the same page over and over.
Granted, I'm running an old browser on Win98, and am on a slow dialup connection, but since this is a safety issue, why cant they make this information EASILY avialable to EVERYONE? Apparently the site is so loaded with scripts and other bloat that it wont work on anything other than the newest computers.
Why cant they just put a frikkin text file on there, that anyone can read?
After fighting with their website for over an hour, and trying every browser I have installed, I gave up. I'm gonna just call my local Chevy dealer, and I suppose I'll be put on hold for another hour....
Personally, if I know how, I'd remove my air bag. They seem more dangerous than they are useful....

all it mentioned was recall on suspension already done.
I had airbags deploy on my 1998 Subaru and while I also had seat belt on I came through disoriented but unhurt. Both bags going off probably accounted for insurance company saying it was totaled as their repair is expensive. In newer models, passenger air bag will not deploy if there is no passenger.

Please note that this page states that the list of impacted vehicles has not been updated to include vehicles impacted by the expanded recall:

I quote:

Exactly! I don't/won't let javascripts run either. They are an easy path for malware to infect your computer.
