Not enough strait on frontal impact to trigger the air bags. If you have ever been in a car where they go off, they are not nice and gentile. The engineers figured out that unless there is a lot of forward energy to absorb that all they were doing triggering airbags was beating the stuffing out of people.roundss said:Me wonders why the French that airbag didn't go off.
It also missed the frame rail completely at the front as seen here.roundss said:Me wonders why the French that airbag didn't go off.
Agreed. When I rang the old owner he actually thought I was from Jeep and wanting to know more about the accident to investigate why they had not gone off. If he can break 5 ribs from the side impact, think it should mean it is hard enough to deploy them!roundss said:I agree about the side curtain going off, that could not have felt good for the driver................... hey the wheel is on the wrong side.
