Air Bags vs. Accelerators

Toyota has been in the spotlight of late for problems with unintended acceleration of its cars. However, statistics show that the most commonly claimed automobile product defect is a car's airbags. The vast majority of claims involve either the failure of an airbag to deploy or an excessively violent deployment of the airbag. Acceleration issues account for only around one percent of product liability claims. Just last year, Honda recalled over 400,000 cars for airbag problems linked to over six deaths. You can find out about all recalls by going to www.nhtsa.gov. The official website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration provides a lot of useful information to the consumer in addition to recall issues

  2. I think tests are made before they release the cars. It just so happen that maybe they forget something. It's scary. Maybe airbags is also a factor in the recall.

  3. I do alot of drivng to and from work at the moment so I can relate to this.

    But you missed out the little chavvy guys (who are obviously trying to compensate for something with their big ‘phat’ exhausts) who seem to think it’s cool to sit with their head against the window, how this can be a comfortable way to drive I don’t know?
