"takata recall" there is a loud vibration coming from passenger side of dashboard. I have taken the vehicle in to be inspected and was told there is a leak in my air bag and that upon collision the air bag may not deploy.

It was snowing on my way to an appointment and my wipers stopped working. I couldn't see out of the windows and another vehicle hit the front end of my 2006 Ford Expedition. Also the other drivers airbags deployed but mine did not. My truck was totaled. I spent the night in the hospital with back injuries and leg injuries, as well as a head injuries which caused me to temporarily lose my memory and consciousness.

As I was slowing down and made a right turn into a parking space, the vehicle accelerated on its own, running over the concrete stop and the curve. The car continued to accelerate and ran head on into a tree that was approximately 10 feet away from the parking space. The driver airbag did not deploy. My car was totaled as a result of this accident.

I was driving on a two lane highway, fm 185. I was driving northeast while the other driver was somewhat stopped heading West, trying to turn South onto cattle drive. The other driver was stopped at an intersection awaiting to turn left. The other driver turned left in front of me as I was headed straight. The initial impact was driver's front side and then down the drivers side door. We hit, and then my vehicle did a 180 degree turn which turned my vehicle around facing my initial path of direction. My airbags did not deploy. I had curtain side airbags, driver, and passenger air bags as well. The airbags of the car causing the accident did deploy.

I was stopped at a red light, construction truck ran into back of my 2006 Ford Expedition. The impact pushed me 20 feet into the vehicle in front of me, sandwiching my vehicle in between the other two; the impact first threw me back then forward & sent my glasses off my head but the airbag did not deploy. I got a concussion & shoulder injury due to force. Police & medical persons were amazed that airbag did not deploy. Vehicle had front end & rear damage, was undriveable & had to be towed away. I am waiting to find out if it will be totaled out.

I was involved in an accident going about 35 mph at the time. I pressed the brakes and hit the car in front of me. The airbags never deployed. Driver had all children in the vehicle. Thought there was something wrong with the sensor that made the airbags not deploy. Had the truck checked by galpin Ford, but they said that nothing was wrong with the vehicle. I am extremely concerned about this because I am afraid that the air bags will deploy at any time for any apparent reason since they did not deploy at the time of the accident.

: the contact stated the passenger side air bag has too much play in it. The airbag has been replaced by the dealership before, but the air bag has never deployed and the vehicle has never been in an accident.
