My husband and I were in a very serious car accident and I'm concerned because our air bags did not deploy. We were traveling on a diagonal street in Chicago and he was going straight. My right front fender hit his right front fender. His air bags deployed but ours did not. The er told me it was likely I hit the steering wheel and it could take up to nine months to heal from having whiplash in my shoulders and neck. My husband has been diagnosed as having a contusion. We hit really hard I was traveling about 25 mph and he was probably doing 45 mph. This is a real safety issue. My air bags may or may not have made the difference but I believe they should have deployed.

I started noticeing when I open my glove box or had someone seating in the passager seat my airbag light would turn on with the engine running. The light would turn on and beep stating service air bag. The light would sometimes stay on or turn off. Once I took my Acadia to the dealership and they ran a bunch of test. At first they couldnżT determine what the problem was. They determine it was the airbag and that it needed to be replaced. The back seat fastener on the middle seat failed to lock the buckle in place. Had to replace this.

Stationary, new vehicle possibly inappropriately equipped. A vehicle with a 2nd row bench seat providing seating for 3 with a center occupant seat belt but without head restraint (and no provision for head restraint). I cannot seem to determine if such a configuration does or does not comply with federal regulations. I cannot determine, therefore, whether I am or am not legally allowed to carry a passenger in the middle (inboard) seat.
