On the evening of October 9, 2020, the air bag on my 2017 Corvette Z06 unexpectly deployed without any warning in my face blocking my view while driving downhill around 45 miles per hour and without me striking any object on the two-lane highway. I believe the right front wheel was defective and broke puncturing the right front tire that caused the right front suspension and frame rails to strike the road surface and break the right front suspension in two that caused me to lose control of the steering and strike the hillside along the two-lane road causing over $38,854 worth of damage to my Corvette that grew to $44,000. My Corvette had never been previously involved in any accidents whatsoever. There is a class action law suit proceeding through the courts now against General Motors related to Corvette wheels cracking and causing damage to Corvette owners tires and cars in varying degrees. Esis who represents General Motors, investigated my defects claim and after General Motors received and reviewed my documentation and photos about the unexpected air bag deployment, suspected wheel and suspension defects they stated that no defects exist. I have attached photos and have the right front cracked wheel, punctured tire and broken suspension components in storage for examination to assist in determining the cause of the suspected defects as stated. The unexpected air bag deployment, cracked wheel and suspension failure caused me to strike the hillside and could also have caused me to collide and strike oncoming motorists causing property damage, personal injury and possible death to me and other motorists..
