AIR BAGS

3/2/2015 - YORKTOWN, VA
MY VEHICLE WAS AT A COMPLETE STOP WHEN WE WERE STRUCK FROM BEHIND BY A VEHICLE TRAVELING AT APPROXIMATELY 50 MPH. THE AIR BAGS DID NOT DEPLOY; INSTEAD, I RECEIVED AN "AIRBAG FAULT" LIGHT AND AUDIBLE SIGNAL AND THE CAR FILLED WITH BLACK SMOKE. THANKFULLY, NO ONE WAS INJURED IN THE ACCIDENT. BUT IF IT HAD BEEN A HEAD-ON COLLISION AND THE AIR BAGS FAILED, I MAY NOT BE HERE TODAY TO TYPE THIS SAFETY COMPLAINT. I READ THAT MANY G8S WERE RECALLED FOR AIR BAG FAULTS, BUT MINE WAS NEVER ON THE LIST.
