It was raining outside and I was driving at normal speed when two cars in front of me the man started to go through a yellow light and instead immediately stopped. I could not hit my brakes hard enough to prevent hitting the Caravan in front of me and the impact was hard enough that it should have deployed my front air bags, which it did not. In addition, I had my seat belt on and it loosened and my head hit the roof of the car causing my head to have a cut and start bleeding and my left side after going to the er and having X-rays, was found to have severe tissue bruising from the impact from the seat belt and my air bags not deploying. I need a front end cap to get my car fixed and being on disability with two children, am on a fixed income and I feel that Pontiac should have to pay for my parts and labor so I can continue to drive my vehicle.
