General Motors Inc Corvette Plant 2007 Chevrolet Corvette Couple Air Bag only Partially Deployed In Head On Collision Causing Severe Injury Bowling Green Kentucky
*Consumer Comment: Corvette junk
*Consumer Comment: Mrjjwiley has a 'massive head injury' as he writes this report!
The impact knocked me out almost instant and after a little while i am guessing 2 or 3 minutes maximum i smelt a burning like electrical coming from the steering wheel, low and behold it was the air bag that decided finally to limply deploy a good two and a half minutes after the collision. To top it off it didn't even deploy correctly it melted something on the steering wheel and one short breath it was like a large Nerfball i want to say. In all my pain i had to force a laugh at what i spent $65,000 on when the AirBag popped out like a muffin which wasn't even enough to hit my chest let alone save me from death.
This is crazy and i am sure i am not the first one who decided to go after them for this defective product. I am sitting here now with a $723.00 car payment and insurance that is bound to go through the roof after my mis hap, but what really gets me thinking as i sit here in stitches to my forehead and having to use peroxide to wash my hair for the next month to not get an infection is i paid them over 60K for this car and once all is said and done interest and all i will bet i have paid almost 100k and this car could of killed me.
Are these people still road testing these cars? What happened to the commercial " You could learn a lot from a Dummy" Remember when they started they were gung ho about it and now i sit and wait. The Airbag should of deployed and i plan on pursuing this very soon with a lawyer.
