How can a car go through the building process and the passenger air bag not be installed" Chevrolet's fix for this was a $100 gift certificate to fly anywhere I wanted to go. I guess $100 is all a human life is worth"

I was driving and to avoid a head on crash I had swerved and went to straighten out but noticed the other driver was still heading for me I had braked and lost control of the car. I had flew over a ditch and went up a hill and rolled back down. We had our seat belts on I was knocked out by my head banging on the steering wheel. None of the airbags were deployed. In a crash like that they should have deployed. We ended upside down.

  • 3,000 miles
Shortly after purchasing the vehicle, electrical system and on-board computer issues started occurring: Tire monitor system (TPMS) in-op. Warnings randomly appearing in dash: Check tire monitor system. Check left/right rear tire pressure. TPMS did not warn of a flat tire even though a significant amount of air was lost. Increasing no. Of issues with electrical system: Keyless entry fails. Check airbag warning appears. Check A/C warning in dash. Ambient temperature gauge erratic. Compass showing N (or ne/nw but always incorrect heading). Cruise control will not resume at times or set incorrect speed (a few M/H higher or lower). Speed has increased on its own. Once, I noticed the speed at over 80M/H when I had set the cruise control at 70. Dash displaying warnings quickly and yellow warning lights flash briefly, which is extremely distracting and warnings cannot be read. TPMS light comes on routinely after driving for 1-3 hours. Warnings may flash at any time. Took the vehicle in six times at the request of GM. Some parts were replaced but electrical issues keep increasing and original issues cannot be fixed. Keyless entry working for now, after components were replaced twice. E-brake did not work when the vehicle was purchased. Though promised by delivery, car had to be taken in five times for E-brake to work modestly. I am not in possession of any old parts as repairs were performed under warranty.

We purchased this vehicle from wally mccarthy's in Minnesota on 12/21/07. On February 15, 2008, the car was involved in a severe collision when other driver failed to stop. On star was alerted immediately and showed that air bags deployed. However, air bags did not deploy and pretensioner belts failed causing permanent injuries. Wally mccarthy refuses to speak with us and GM offers nothing in resolving case as of 2/17/09. See cnn ireport for photos under "Chevy Impala".
