Airbags not going off seem to be a problem in alot of older new generation cars. My friend flipped a saturn and the side curtain airbags didnt go off. Nothing.
Glad everyones ok.
Some idiot rearended a friend of mine's RX 300 while playing with the iDrive on his E60. The RX just needed a little touching up on the bumper and a new muffler, but the 5er was completely destroyed on the front end. The radiatonr went bye bye. The entire front end was completely shattered. The guy was going like 45 mph.
I am glad to know your wife and kid are fine. My friend is having health trouble from her accident still. It was in May of last year. She had nerve damage in her neck, which led to her needing a pacemaker (she's only 27), being clinically dead, and in need of miracolous healing at the moment. I know this is a total hijack, but I have been active on a couple of boards for a hile now and hadn't shared this. It is very important to be responsible while driving.
