copy of e-mail to saturn: dear saturn representative, my husband and i are considering buying another saturn sl2. however, we are concerned about safety. my previous sl2 (1995, #1g8zk5272sz131805) was hit from behind by a chevy tahoe on 5/3/97. i was pushed into another car in front of me. that vehicle (a toyota) ended up on top of my saturn. my sl2 was a total loss. i sustained neck and back muscle injuries. i continue to undergo treatments for recurring pain. the cab compartment of the sl2 held up well. however, the driver's seat collapsed and fell back against the back seat. it seems this lack of support may have added to my muscle strain. also, the airbag did not deploy. shouldn't it have deployed as the sl2 was pushed into the car in front? are these design issues or were they possibly defects in our car? would the '98 vehicles be safer in these respects? if helpful, we could send pictures of the sl2 after the accident. thank you - lyn & john pearson

Location:
Urbana, IL

while at rest, my car was struck from behind and forced into the car in front of me. my car was extensivelty damaged. actual value yet to be determined. the air bag did not deploy although it seemed appropriate for it to do so. our insurance adjustor (state farm) will not comment on the air bag's failure. the driver's side seat was also forced into a full recline position and remained locked in place there. this would have seriously injured my child in the back seat if he had been present. our insurance adjustor likewise downplay's this failure. when questioned about the recall info at your website ((nhtsa id # 99v045000 interior system seats) our saturn dealer denies any recall involving our vehicle and suggests your website is providing erroneous information. please contact me for any further information.
