I was driving our car ( 2005 Isuzu Ascender), having just exited the highway I was only going around 5- 8 mph when out of no where and with no reason the side, and rear airbags unexpectedly deployoed. There was no reason for them to have deployed, no accident, impact, bumps or anything. One minute everything was fine the next there was a loud sound and the cabin filled with airbags and a horrible smell thankfully my children were not in the car because the way they exploded it would have surely caused them physical harm. Upon the airbags unexpectedly deploying the seatbelts locked up completely.

My daughter was pulling out to turn left onto a 4 lane road. As she crossed the median she hit a large puddle and hydroplaned. When the car hit a dry patch on the road, both side airbags deployed. She was able to pull over to the side of the road safely. She was then able to restart the car and drive it 1-mile home. The insurance company inspected the car and claims it is a mechanical error. The car is at the dealer and we are waiting to hear from Isuzu.

We had a car accident and the airbags didn't activate...the impact was very hard that the insurance company decided to total the car because the damage was to big...I am pregnant and I have 2 more kids, and I'm so disappointed with this experience that something could happened to me or my kids if we were in the accident.
