My car came to stop due to a car in front of me stopping suddenly my car did not touch the car in front. I had to brake quickly since car in front brake quickly. Car behind me hit me causing my car to hit the car in front. Car crashed into me in a approximate speed of 30 mph I protected my head from hitting steering wheel with my own strength holding on to steering wheel. I was injured from my leg and ribs. No on else was injured. # cars were involved, including mines. Why did my airbag did not deploy? my glasses went flying and got damaged. My rear end is totally damaged and front as well.

Tire pressure monitoring system did not work at delivery, dealer has had many excuses not to repair. This should be a warranty item.
