This car was a rental car. My spouse was driving this car and was involved in a car accident. He was hit by a car and then pushed into another car. The Jeep was totaled but yet not one airbag was ever deployed. There was supposed to be six airbags in this vehicle but not one ever deployed. My husband suffered a minor head injury as a result.
