2003 Pontiac Sunfire Owner Comments

  • miles


I was driving on the highway around 5:00pm, perfect road conditions. I started choking & swerved into another lane, other driver blasted his horn & scared me. I over compensated & lost control of my car & ended up hitting the median. My airbags deployed, the passenger side was fine, but the drivers side didn't deploy correctly. The air bag came out of the side & not directly in front of me. The airbag blew my rear view mirror off of the wind shield & ended up breaking my right hand in multiple places. My seat belt also came undone. I am only 5 feet tall & if the airbag had gone off like it should've, I know I would have had numerous injuries to my face & chest. The reason I am making a complaint is due to the fact that had I hit this wall head on, I most likely would've been killed. At this time I do not know the VIN or correct miles, my car as totaled & it's still with the tow company. I believe this, along with the seat belt unlocking on it's own after a serious accident, to be tremendously dangerous.
