Takata inflators"??" involved in a front impact collision, the air bags deployed. I received minor lacerations on both my fight hand and left arm from debris from the airbag. One small piece was still embedded in my right hand. Other than the debris, the airbag deployment was as it should be.

After taking my vehicle in to the shop for a routine safety inspection, I've received a call that my F-150 failed because of an air bag malfunction. After doing research, I have found out that many vehicles with air bag malfunctions have been recalled. I feel that this is not a case of normal wear and tear from the owner but a company malfunction. I am suppose to pay $1300 for a repair that I have no control over and one that has been recalled in so many vehicles? I find this to be unacceptable!

The airbags did not deploy when I hit a car in the side as he was running a red light. Did not know if they were suppose too. Ford states it should deploy at least 8mph. What to do? information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

I was involved in a low-speed 45 miles a hour front end collision. I was in a Ford F-150 4 door 2-wheel drive. My seat belt worked great. The air bag went off but did not hit me in the face. The front of the truck was crushed badly but with no fluid leaks. After the wrecker pull my front bumper free from my front tires I was able to drive the truck back home about 100 miles. All system worked great. The truck showed that the Ford safety system worked well. I had no injuries except for my left hand. And that is the complaint. Why would Ford or ntsb allow a Ford design that not only can help save a life but for sure will injure the very person they are trying to save. Being a engineer myself I believe they could design the tear pattern, which is the problem, on the steering wheel air bag so that it did not fly open left & right and inflect a severe blunt force injury to my thumb by the Ford emblem. The injury is just like I was hit with a hammer on my thumb. It did not break my thumb but a severe skin break and bruise that took 2 weeks to heal. I have pictures if that would be of help. Have Ford engineering call me and I will show them how to fix the problem. I do not like to be injured while you are trying to save my life. Ford can do both. Save my life and not injure me at the same time. [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
