2005 Mazda MAZDA3 Owner Comments

problem #1

MAZDA3 4-cyl

  • 84,000 miles


While traveling approximately 35mph an oncoming vehicle (Ford Explorer) tried to make a left turn across my lane of travel. While braking, my 2005 Mazda 3 was hit on the drivers side directly between the drivers side front door and drivers side rear door damaging both in the process. My vehicle was then pushed into a vehicle located at the intersection cross street. This collision damaged the passenger side rear door and rear quarter panel. As a result, 5 airbags deployed; the four door curtain airbags and the drivers side torso airbag. The problem is that the driver side curtain airbag deployed after my head hit the drivers door window glass. Because my head hit the glass hard and bounced back I received a concussion as well as whiplash on my neck. If the airbag would have deployed in time, the result would most likely have been much better for me.
