A driver ran the red traffic light and hit my vehicle as I was making a left turn in the intersection. The impact was so intense that he managed to shift the entire front frame of my vehicle. My air bags did not deploy.

Vehicle was stationary, driver placed ac on highest setting, but nothing blew out (mylink screen also displays no air). Navigation stops working in middle of route and changes destination to a different country (Mexico). Vehicle feels like it wants to die in stop/go traffic and while in stationary position. When making turns at any speed, driver will begin braking, and vehicle accelerates on its own causing many near miss accidents including almost falling off a bridge. Lastly, many 2015 Suburban have been recalled for their airbags, but mine has not. Concerned that ours may be impacted and do not wish to end up injured or a fatality. NHTSA has documented fatalities of airbag failures from vehicles not recalled that were 2015 Tahoe and Suburban. Vibrations are so loud they cause migraines and earaches in all occupants.

Takata recall- on May 27 2016 we were involved in an accident in our 2015 Chevrolet Suburban. 2 of the 4 passengers passed away. We were ran off the of road and hit twice by a truck pulling a trailer. All airbags except the front passenger and drivers front airbag deployed. This occurred while the vehicle was in motion. We crossed northbound lanes and came to a complete stop about 10 feet off of the roadway. A motorhome towing a Jeep locked their brakes going approx 65 mph when they saw us cross the road and lost control causing them to come off of the roadway. They hit us, causing us to spin around and then hit us again. The accident ended with us being slammed into a cement culvert. During this time the front airbags still did not deploy and also the steering wheel broke off. The front passenger passed away as well as his sister sitting behind him. Can someone look into this and see why the front airbags did not deploy and also why the steering broke? thank you.
