I wrote previously on the brakes not working resulting in accident but I can't find where to update my previous complaint so I'll add to it here. We have since learned the speed at time of accident was 21 mph, red light came on when brakes were pressed and there were no brakes. This is the 3rd time it happened. The other 2 the brakes came right back. The accident did result in the vehicle being totaled. Thank goodness no injuries but what we have since learned is the airbags did indeed deploy, thank goodness, but the driver seatbelt did not hold. When they got him out of the driver seat, the seatbelt was across him but no longer buckled. It was just laying across him, between the airbag and the driver. I did receive a occupant restraint controller notification saying there is a recall but it says they don't have a fix yet. This is beyond scary. Especially since we own two of the same vehicles. We couldn't afford to park the vehicles until a fix was made available so driving the other Avenger is very scary. I sure hope there is a remedy soon. The recall is also for the airbags which I thank my lucky stars at least they did deploy. The accident happened 11/16/2016. Photos attached
