Complaint - Air Bags, Steering, Wheels

I REPORTED THESE PROBLEMS BACK IN SEPTEMBER 2011 AFTER I WAS INVOLVED IN A CAR ACCIDENT ON THE FREEWAY. ON SEPTEMBER 03, 2011, I WAS DRIVING ON SOUTH I-43 FREEWAY. WHEN I ATTEMPTED TO MAKE A LANE CHANGE, MY CAR WENT OUT OF CONTROL DUE TO STEERING FAILURE. I COULD NOT STEER MY CAR, MY STEERING WHEEL WAS VERY LOOSE AND THERE WAS NO CONNECTION BETWEEN THE STEERING WHEEL AND THE VEHICLE ITSELF. I WAS STRUCK BY ANOTHER DRIVER THAT HIT MY CAR ON THE PASSENGER-SIDE BY THE REAR LOWER SIDE PANEL. NO AIRBAG DEPLOYED. MY CAR SLAMMED UP AGAINST THE CONCRETE WALL BARRIER ON THE PASSENGER-SIDE OF MY CAR. I HAVE SIDE AIRBAGS, AIRBAGS IN MY SEATS, UNDERNEATH MY DASH, IN MY STEERING WHEEL, ONE ON THE PASSENGER'S SIDE ABOVE THE GLOVE COMPARTMENT, AND IN ALL FOUR WINDOW SEALS OF MY CAR AND NOT ONE AIRBAG DEPLOYED. I HAVE ADR SYSTEM IN MY CAR THAT SUPPOSEDLY CAN RECORD SECONDS OF ACTIVITY AT THE TIME OF THE ACCIDENT. WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT INFORMATION? I AM STILL EXPERIENCING PROBLEMS WITH MY CARE THAT IS DEFINITELY A SAFETY ISSUE SUCH AS; CONTINUING REPLACING TIE ROD AND THE STABILIZER BAR LOOSE. THIS PROBLEM STARTED FIRST HAVING PROBLEMS TRYING TO TURN THE KEY IN THE IGNITION SWITCH TO CRANK THE CAR AND AT TIMES FEARING THAT I MIGHT BREAK THE KEY IN THE IGNITION SWITCH AND HAVING TO REALLY WIGGLE THE STEERING WHEEL TO GET THE SWITCH TO TURN OVER. PICTURES THAT WERE TAKEN BY MY INSURANCE COMPANY REVEALED A LOT OF RUSTY OLD LOOKING PARTS UNDERNEATH THE CAR WHEN IN FACT THE MOTOR OF THE CAR STILL LOOKS NEW. MY CAR WAS ONLY TWO YEARS OLD WITH A LITTLE OVER 17,000 MILES AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE IN OCTOBER 2010. WHEN I REPORTED THESE ALL OF THESE THINGS IN SEPTEMBER 2011, I WAS TOLD THAT THERE WAS NO RECALLS ON MY CAR AND I DOUBT IF THIS CAR HAS ANY AIRBAGS IN IT. I LEARNED AFTER, I HAD THE ACCIDENT IN MY CAR, THAT THE CAR HAD BEEN WRECKED AND HAD POSSIBLE FRAME DAMAGE AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE.
