problem #1

Mar 302018


  • 40,000 miles
On or around the end of March or first of April 2018, I purchased a acuratlx 2016. It was from an individual, but, he had a certificate of 100% approval that everything was properly working from jerry damson Acura dealership in huntsville, al. I test drove the car and fell in love with it. I paid cash for the car, and recieved the title from him. My mother and 4yr. Old daughter was with me. I put her car seat in the back and my daughter and I were on our way home (approx.90 miles) but, we had to stop at a gas station first the car was on empty. I drove approx. 3 miles and I pull in to the gas station. I drove up to the pump and put it in park. I have not opened my door or turn off the engine. All of a sudden my left arm and shoulder were hurting in the most intense pain. My daughter was screaming and my mother had pulled up beside me in her car. And my ears are ringing and I could see my mothers lips moving and her hands are moving up and down. I finally rolled down the back window (were my daughter was). She said white smoke rolled out of the window as I was opening it. I hear her screaming are you ok - someone fired a shotgun we have to get out of here! as I was looking around this white sheet covered my side of the car! the driver side airbag deployed! how could this have happened! it was cleared 100% approval by an Acura dealership - jerry damson - in huntsville, al. Please, please tell me how this could happened
