I was driving West bound on I-10 towards tucson Arizona. I was in the right lane and there was a pickup truck in the left lane. The pickup truck cut me off and moved into my lane without checking his blind spot. I quickly swerved to the right into the lane for the upcoming exit to avoid being hit, and when I tried to correct to left in order to not hit exit sign the brakes felt as if they did not work right and I couldn't get control of the vehicle. The car went into a roll and landed on the passenger side. None of the airbags deployed. I had left town the day before and was on my way back. When I contacted my parents about the accident on the 21st they told me that a recall had come in the mail the day before for my vehicle. The recall was the GM recall notice. Because I was unaware of the recall I had many keys on my key ring. I feel that although the reason I had to swerve was because of another car, the reason I couldn't get back control was a malfunction in my car.

I purchased a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix, I have been reading the complaints on this site about airbags not deploying in severe accidents. I have also noticed that there was a recall on the 2006 Buick lacrosse which is mechanically identical to the Grand Prix. In theory because the two cars are basically the same but have different names and different sheet metal it is quite likely that they suffer form the same problem. However, the Grand Prix has not been recalled.

The vehicle slid on ice therefore spinning into a 360 whereupon the vehicle impacted with a bridge then the opposite side of the bridge with the initial impact at 70 mph. The vehicle hit the bridge with the front end and the rear end, however the airbag never deployed and the seatbelt did not tighten.
