On July 20, 2010, I was stopped at a traffic light when I was rear-ended by another vehicle. The force of the crash was such that the rear of the car I was driving sustained several thousand dollars in damage. The force also, propelled me into the car stopped in front of me. This other car sustained damage to their bumper to dislodge it from its supports and throw their rear window off track. There is no place in the repair bill that stated that the airbag was reset because it failed to deploy. Given the fact that the rear crumple zone was destroyed, and the rear quarter panels were replaced, this car is rented by budget under the guise of it being safe. The paperwork I received from budget also states that the features of this Nissan Sentra (2010) is front, rear and side airbags. Since all of the rear of the car was destroyed it can be safely assumed that the airbag sensor should have been triggered. If both from the rear of the car definitely from the force of my car being propelled into the car in front of me. Budget rented this car as being a "safe" car with this Nissan safety equipment when it clearly is not.

On December 29, 2008, my son and his girlfriend were involved in an auto accident. He was driving a 2006 Nissan Sentra with side airbags. His vehicle was hit on the driver's side. The driver's front airbag and side airbag deployed. The passengers' front airbag deployed however the passenger's side airbag did not deploy. Injuries - driver - right femur fracture right tibia and fracture to left pelvis; passenger - severe head injury. Are all airbags supposed to deploy or not when the vehicle is involved in an auto accident?.

My wife skidded off a freshly graveled road and nose-dived into a ditch frontend first, catapulted the vehicle into a c/clockwise spin and wrapped the vehicle around a tree. The original impact was front end and no airbags deployed. The passenger side was completely crushed hitting the tree with what would appear as a side curtain airbag deployment. On investigation, it appears the air bag was torn out of the center wall (no propellant smell or residue). Had the air bags deployed there would not have been injuries that certainly would not have required med-a-vac. Jpc/SC .

My husband was in an accident in July of this year. He collided head on with some 50 gallon barrels on the side of the road going 60 mph. He came to a complete stop within 10 feet. Neither the driver side nor passenger side airbag deployed in the accident. Nissan was contacted and responded saying that the conditions were not met to allow the airbags to deploy. I do not know where to go from here. Our car would have been totaled if the airbags would have deployed. Howerver, because they did not the insurance company repaired the vehicle and now we are driving around in a death trap. I am paying full price for a vehicle that is defective and no one at Nissan seems to care. Where do I go from here. . What do I do?.
