problem #1

  • 3,000 miles
My vehicle was struck in the front by another vehicle as I was crossing a four lane hightway. Other vehicle was running 65 mph. My seat belt locked, but none of the front or side curtain air bags deployed. I suffered a mild concussion as a result of my head striking the driver's side window. Immediately after the wreck, one could smell the inflators releasing vapor, but no deployment of the bags occurred. Vehicle was a total loss due to structural damage.
