 Description of the problemI rear ended someone while driving on a busy southern california freeway. The car in front of me had slowed down after noticing that the person in front of her had slammed on her brakes. I was traveling at least 40 mph and did not notice the car in front had slowed down/stopped and i rear-ended her. Her car had a lot of rear bumper damage. My car sustained the brunt of the force and was damaged in the front. No one was hurt, but my husband was in the passenger seat, while my 2 year old was in his car seat in the back. My airbags did not deploy, despite the fact that it was a frontal collision with extensive damage to the front. This accident, thankfully, was not fatal, however could easily have been. This happened on a very busy freeway with cars traveling at least 65 mph. It also happened almost immediately after a slight turn in the freeway, making it difficult for cars to notice an accident in time to stop. My car could have easily been hit from behind almost immediately after the collision. I don't feel safe driving it anymore (even after it's fixed) because i view that car as a loaded gun and i'm playing russian roulette. It's my primary mode of transportation and we use this car for any traveling we do. My son is mostly in my car (school, etc.). I wanted to report this so that this does not happen to others and, god forbid, be fatal. Please investigate these incidences so no unnecessary consequences occur as a result of faulty airbags.

  • What is Recall?

    A recall is when a product is removed from the market or a correction is made to the product because it is either defective or potentially harmful.
  • What is Failure?

    Failure is the state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective, and may be viewed as the opposite of success. Product failure ranges from failure to sell the product to fracture of the product, in the worst cases leading to personal injury, the province of forensic engineering.

    Non-conformance of a car component with the specified requirements, or non-fulfillment of user expectations, including the safety aspects.
