Not sure if takata inflators are involved. On Thursday 1/12/2017, I was stopped on the freeway and was rear-ended by a semi truck which didn't stop going approximately 35 mph. It pushed me into the vehicle in front of me which was a car length away. The seat broke backwards, the headrest broke off completely and I hit the rear veiw mirror breaking it off. None of the 6 airbags in the vehicle deployed,

The contact owns a 2016 Jeep Patriot. While driving approximately 20 mph, the contact veered and crashed the front passenger side of the vehicle into the rear driver side of a parked vehicle. The contact sustained a concussion, fractured nose, and a busted lip that required medical attention. The contact would need surgery in the future. A police report was filed. The vehicle was towed to a collision shop where it was inspected and determined that the rate of deceleration necessary to engage the air bag system was not present during the collision. The manufacturer was made aware of the issue. The failure mileage was approximately 9,000.

Takata recall. I was involved in a accident on March 14, 2016. I was stopped at a stop sign when a SUV was making a right turn to the street I was stopped waiting to make my right turn. The gentleman was speeding and took a hard right, he lost control of his vehicle and hit me full impact on the driver side. The entire driver side had to be replaced. The airbags did not inflate, the airbag lights did not turn on. At the impact that I was hit they should have gone off and no one knows or could explain why they didn't deploy. When my vehicle was repaired and I went to pick up, then the airbag lights were on and had to be reset and the seatbelt was not properly working (that had to be replaced)
