MPV 6-cyl

  • 70,800 miles
I was just setting in my 2002 Mazda MPV ES and with the key turned to on spot not to start the vehicle so that I could put down my window. After a minute or so my SRS airbags in my driver seat and passenger seat deployed without any warning. Injury to myself was moderate. My biggest disappointment is that Mazda would not help me at all and suggested I turn it into my insurance under comp. Insurance is only taking care of the damage from this defective product and I have to pay out of pocket to have the other airbags checked for safety. I bought my vehicle new and never had been in any accident.
