I parked my car at an airport parking lot. Lot was full and I had to valet park. I turned off the ignition gave keys to the attendant. Left lot in van for airport. Attendant started car rolled to the gated exit. When waiting for the gate to open the passenger side airbag exploded while the car was not in motion. Driver side bad did not deploy. Dash damage was estimated at $4000. I took to dealer and they took two days to analyze the cause. They said it was a bad control module in the passenger side airbag. They did not offer relief for the parts or workmanship cause of the malfunction.
