problem #4

LeSabre 6-cyl

  • 40,000 miles
2001 Buick Lesabre VIN [xxx] dash pad has been peeling upward toward windshield. Started in front of steering wheel and has migrated across to the passenger side. Also peeling apart on corners and above glove box. As the passenger side has worsened, there is a noise that I suspect is coming from the passenger side air bag. I am concerned about a deployment of the passenger side air bag. The dash looks to be a blast away unit when the air bag is deployed. If the passenger side air bag were to deploy under normal driving conditions it may obscure the view of the driver. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Car was struck from behind first then forced into the car in front. This resulted in damage to both front and rear. The impact to the front failed to activate either driver or passenger airbag, yet caused enough damage to indicate a force beyond the activation point was received.
