NISSAN ALTIMA Air Bags Frontal problems : 5.

While Stopped In Traffic In Sevierville, Tennessee On 2/12/2005, My 2005 altima Was Hit In The Rear By A Car That Failed To Stop. The Driver Of That Car Was Determined To Be At Fault By Police. Four Vehicles Were Involved In The Accident With My Car Being The Most Damaged. Police Estimated The Car That Hit Me Was Going Approximately 30-35 Mph. At Impact. The Impact Drove My Car Forward Into The Vehicle In Front Of Me. The Rear Of My Car Was Destroyed And The Front Impact Was Hard Enough That The Radiator Was Burst And Front Suspension Members And The Hood Were Crumpled. At No Time During The Accident Did Either Of The Front air Bags In My altima Deploy! However, The Seat Belts Did Lock In Position And Probably Saved Us From More Serious Injury. Injuries For Those In My Car (four People) Consisted Of Cuts, Scrapes And Bruises Accompanined With Soreness. Since It Is Only Two Days Since The Accident, There May Be Other Possible Problems Arise. I Thought air Bags Were Suppose To Deploy In Cases Such As This? I Note From Research That nissan Has Had Numerous Complaints And Problems With Their air Bag Failures. Something Needs To Be Done To Stop This!*ak

I Was Driving My 2005 nissan altima North In The Left Lane Of A 2 Lane Road Approaching An Intersection (i Was Alone In The Car). An Suv Was Heading South And Was Stopped In The Turn Lane To Make A Left Turn. As I Was Entering The Intersection (green Light) The Suv Turned In Front Of My Car. The Distance Was Too Short To Stop. I Hit Their Right Front Passenger Side By The Tire Head On. I Was Driving Approx. 30 Mph. The Damage To My Car Was To The Center Front End. The Front End Was Pushed In And The Hood Buckled. Upon Impact, My Passenger airbag Deployed But My Driver Side Didn’t. I Had A Small Purse In The Passenger Seat. The Police, Tow Driver, Mechanic And Auto Assessor All Said They Have Never Seen This Happen With The airbags. My Car Was Declared A Total Loss. The Damage Was Too Expensive To Repair. I Was Luckily To Not Be Injured. I Am Very Concerned That If The Impact Was More Severe, I Had No Protection And Could Have Been Injured. I Have Photos Of The Accident And What Was On The Passenger Seat As Well As A Statement From The Auto Repair Mechanic Saying That He Has Never Seen This Situation Where The Wrong airbag Deployed. *tr
