Initial impact to front driver's side and air bag did not deploy) I had contacted a law firm which indicated they couldn't sue for at least a million dollars, so I contacted daimler Chrysler who indicated that they investigated the wreck and reported, "))) that due to the spinning type of accident)))" and it was not subjected to the necessary G forces required and that, "obviously, in reviewing the police report, this is not the type of impact your vehicle was involved in)" the police report indicates that I was doing 50 to 70 mph upon first impact with a guard rail, almost head on) they even indicated specifically that the driver's side air bag did not deploy) I am sure that this was not a valid analysis and wanted to officially inform you that, while I was not seriuosly injured and was alone in the accident, I am concerned that the air bag deployment is faulty in these vehicles) I have pictures of a severly dented steering wheel which happened upon impact) if that's not enough G force, then they need to reengineer the thing!
