Hi there, I have a 2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8 S and unfortunately I have an single traffic accident on 31 Dec, 2009. I skid on the snowy-icy highway and hit the road side barriers about 20-30 mph. Airbags didn't deployed. I injured my neck. I sent all informations Nissan usa about me, vehicle and accident to and asked why? however, they couldn't give me any reasonable answer. I got final response from Nissan almost 2 months later than accident. They forward me to dealer for airbag diagnosis but it's not free of charge. I have all records about accident and Nissan. Thanks for your considerations...

I have a 2006 Nissan Sentra and involved in a crash. Another driver turned left in front of me. I hit her going approximately 45mph. My front driver's side hit her front driver's side. My air bag did not deploy. At 45mph the air bag should have deployed. I now have neck injuries. There was a little over $2,200 damage to the front of my car and it was not drivable due to the front left tire being pushed almost all the way into the wheel well. I just saw a safety recall for other Nissan's for airbag problems and am wondering if the Sentra's should have been included. Thank-you.

My wife skidded off a freshly graveled road and nose-dived into a ditch frontend first, catapulted the vehicle into a C/clockwise spin and wrapped the vehicle around a tree. The original impact was front end and no airbags deployed. The passenger side was completely crushed hitting the tree with what would appear as a side curtain airbag deployment. On investigation, it appears the air bag was torn out of the center wall (no propellant smell or residue). Had the air bags deployed there would not have been injuries that certainly would not have required med-A-vac. Jpc/SC.

The other driver made a imp left turn and I hit his 2006 F150 truck with 2006 Nissan Sentra. I was going about 40 to 45 miles per hour. My air bags did not di-deploy. My auto is at mike shad Nissan being repaired for physical damage. I have contacted Nissan to check the air bags out I was told it would be about 6 weeks before the report would be complete. I'm just a scared to drive an auto if the air bags are defected. I want to know before I drive the Nissan back off the lot. The physical damage should be repaired in about 6 days.
