 Description of the problemWe own a 2002 vw jetta 2. 0l. We were driving through an intersection and the passenger side curtain and passenger seat airbag deployed without cause. We pulled off to the side to check for any exterior damage that could of caused the deployment but could not see any. We drove it home (@ 1 mile) and had it towed to the dealership where we will hear about their course of action to repair the issue. Is this a occurrence that is under investigation? If so it might be helpful to know since this will be a very costly repair and haven't had the best of luck with vw even though it's still under warranty. *nm
