: the contact stated while driving 70 mph on normal dry road conditions, the driver side airbag deployed without warning. The 17 year-old driver suffered first degree burns on the right forearm, and was taken to a hospital. The vehicle was not seen by a dealer, however the manufacturer was contacted. The manufacturer determined that the inflater module may corrode, causing inadvertent deployment of the airbag. Updated 12/15/06.
