The airbags failed to deploy in a head-on collision in the car even though they deployed in the other car that was involved in the accident. The Cadillac had extensive damage to the left front end to the extent that the unibody on that side was crumpled, a large part of the front will be replaced and the windshield was broken. If the seat belts had not worked extremely well, holding both front seat passengers against the seat, there would have been severe injuries.

The air bag warining light came on and would not go off. Air bag light did go off after vehicle was brought in to dealership. On 1/26/96 light came on again at that time the right air bag coil was replaced and the wiring in the steering column was also replaced.
