  • 5,300 miles
I was heading out of my driveway when my car was hit on left front side by a vehicle traveling on the road. That also triggered another collision in which my car hit another car parked on the street. The hood was gravely damaged. It was a total loss. The critical issue was that no airbag, whatsoever, was inflated to protect the safety of the passenger in the car.
