Had a car pull out in front of me and air bags did not deploy in crash. Excessive front end damage, insurance totaled truck. Also had a friend 2 weeks prior involved in a crash with excessive front end damage, insurance totaled his truck and his air bags did not deploy. His truck was a 2006 Ram 3500. Does Dodge have an air bag problem in these trucks? seem to.
