I was recently turning into my subdivision and my side curtain airbags went off without warning, and with no apparent reason. I called the dealership, and with a little aggravation, they agreed to tow my car to the dealership and take a look. After about 10 days, they called to let me know that there was no defect found, that the air bags were outside of warranty, and that my insurance company ought to be notified. After notifying my insurance company, they said that since there was no accident, that this was just a mechanical issue, and that they did not need to be involved. There are still a couple of issues pending, but as it stands, I am looking at about $5000.00 in repairs due to a fluke during the normal use of my car. Do you have any suggestions? I can drive the car (my airbags are tied up with string), but my seatbelt is locked and I don't feel quite as safe as I did in the past. I guess I could get a couple of quotes, but air bags aren't something to go cheap on, and I don't think you can recycle them.
have the same problem?
