I was driving approx. 40mph when a 16 year old driver sitting the the turn lane coming from the opposite direction pulled out in front of me. I hit my brakes(about 20ft of skid marks) and pulled to the right to avoid the other car. I hit the other car in the front passenger side the went about 15 feet and hit a four foot block wall. My Pathfinder followed the wall about 12 feet and came to a rest almost on its side. I had two front impacts and neither airbag opened on either impact.

  • miles
Was in head on collision at approx. 50mph in new 2001 Nissan Pathfinder le. Vehicle had 600 miles on it and was leased. Vehicle pulled in front of me on 4 lane highway, I hit it head on. Airbags did not deploy. Body shop, police etc have all said that they should have deployed. Radiator was crushed and bumper and grill assembly were demolished. Also concern that seat belt did not tighten. Have been advised by body shop who does a lot of this type work that they recommend having it tested since in their professional opinion it should have deployed. I have back injury.
