I had just came from atlanta ga. I turn into my apartment complex and I heard something pop. That's when I learn my air bag messed up it knock out my cigarette lighter. And my car horn. It warp my steer wheel. I contacted the Dodge dealer ship and told them what happen I ask them if it was recall on air bags.I knew it was a manufacture defect.because that bag should not have messed up like that. It didn't deploy all the way out but it messed up my steer wheel and I would like for them to fix it. I'm still driving the car.

My 2004 Dodge Intrepid was in an accident. Over 5 miles per hour front end damage. Air bags did not deploy. When car insurance looked at car said motor seized at the scene of accident but not from accident. Terrible car, terrible auto insurance. Now paying for a car that is sitting at a garage.

While driving, the vehicle stalled. The computer was replaced and the air bag was fixed. After the vehicle was picked up, the vehicle stopped again in traffic and caused many near misses. Then the electrical harness was replaced.
