i was driving in the off road area of oceano dunes and went off a sand dune head first about 15 feet. the entire front end is smashed, i hit the steering wheel so hard it is bent. neither the air bag nor the seat belt worked. i had taken the truck in for repair five different times because the air bag light would stay on for long periods of time. they said they had repaired it the last time but obviously they hadn't. i have called repeatedly since the accident, they keep promising to return my call but i get no response from them. first they wouldn't believe there was anything wrong and now they refuse to accept responsibility for the failure of their safety equipment to work. i wonder if any one is interested in a class action suit.*ak

Mesa, AZ

driving on us 60 and loop 101 when the side air bag located in drivers left side of seat exploded. there had been some wood pallet debris approximately scattered on the road 100 hundred yards behind the point of the air bag activation. analysis from the ford dealership shows that some small object impacted onto the frame underneath the center post about 6 inches up on the frame post. i think that this area is of impact is unprotected from small objects detonating the air bag in a non emergency condition. (example) gravel roads any small rock could trigger the air bag. this condition may happen on any road from objects too small to be observed. the only damage noted is some paint scraped from frame. dealer put the car on hoist and that was the only way to see the impact area. it is actually about 6 inches above the bottom of car frame. mechanic said the area was 6 inches from the sensor. i am now dealing with the insurance company to get the air bag and seat replaced. this should not happen. i do have digital pictures of the area impacted but feel the sensor is not adequately protected from false explosions. *nm

Location:
Richmond, CA

hit dip (road defect) 04/26/05; driver's-side airbag (from steering wheel) deployed. thought car about to catch on fire (that airbag powder was smoke); quickly exited car, then realized situation. sustained airbag burns - lower face/chin, all across chest/breasts; right hand bruised, swollen between 2nd & 3rd knuckles. *no* damage to car, other than airbag deploying. my opinion regarding airbags shifted 180 degrees; just want my car's airbags disabled, but told that's illegal (at least in ca). shouldn't have to drive afraid of airbag deployment & injury or even death, without any say in the matter. as i understand it, airbags designed to protect 220-lb. _man_ in front-end collision, re-engineered after 1st generation to deploy with more force because _non-seat-belt-wearers_ injured. i _always_ wear seat belt in car (ca law); since relatively short (5'5"), directly in line of driver's-side airbag deployment); lightweight (125 lbs.) -- nowhere near 220 lbs. extremely lucky no other cars around when incident occurred; else unnecessary airbag deployment could have caused an accident: deployment (explosion) and resultant powder shocked me & obscured vision. per motor sports digest (msd@stic.net), for professional/skilled race car drivers: - "... showroom stock classes ... use the same kind of cars we all drive every day, only they _remove_ the air bag for safety!" at racing speeds, with safety paramount -- yet racers realize airbags are dangerous. - "... it['s] strange why people can't realize that what can kill a small child will at least injure an adult!" [ i agree] - "... mechanics and installers are all warned of the dangers of the air bag.... touching the wrong wire while their head is under the dash can cause permanent hearing loss at the very least if the air bag deploys." (local ford dealer requires $324.00 to hook up, run airbag simulator before re-installing airbag (which i didn't want anyway!) to insure mechanic's safety.)

driver's side airbag stopped working for no reason. flashing warning light came on indicating a problem. went to ford dealer (suburban in sandy, or) and they said the 'resistance' level had increased causing the airbag to no longer function. called ford, they gave me a "senior discount", although not a senior. said that airbags fall under 5 year/50000 mile warranty. the ranger has 56,000. ford said that they cannot guarantee the function of an airbag for more than 5 years or 50,000 miles. they were not able to ascertain if the airbag stopped functioning all at once or if my safety was in jeopardy over an extended period of time as the airbag slowly stopped working. airbags are a mandatory safety device and should be covered from defect for the life of the vehicle. i am extremely dissatisfied with ford's attitude about my safety. i have the airbag module and can provide it to nhtsa to study and determine if this is a major safety issue. because of the mechanics of an airbag, i would ask for specific instructions on how to send it to you. *jb
