    My airbags deployed during an auto cross on power tour!1!!

    Slow, slow auto x at Power Tour, never got out of first gear. Air bags and seat belt pretensioners deployed. Car is at a dealer in Muskegon Michigan, I planned on long hauling, I better get a loaner, all my hotels are prepaid. I don't need new new airbags for the trip, but we need to be able to put on our seat belts.



    There should be lots of videos.

    Stay away from auto crosses with these pieces of shit and Camaros. I'm sure everyone has seen that video of the Camaro that has the side curtains randomly deploy.

    I can understand your frustration. But let's just keep it to your piece of shit, ummkay? My V has been just fine at autocrosses and track days...

    I hope no one else has this problem, but this obviously isn't the first, there's the video of the Camaro. And if there are two out there, there have to be more. Lots of things happen outside the bubble of the internet.

    I assume it was the side-curtains and not the fronts, correct? Are they on a separate fuse?

    Well on a side note, it's nice to see how large they are.

    Side curtains, yes. A little late to pull the fuse now. I'm stuck in ****ing Muskegon, MI. Hoping the dealer here has seat belts. I have to authorize any repairs, right? Well, if they have seat belts, that all I'm authorizing today and some dealer can fix the rest when I get home. This destroys the headliner and who knows what else. Good thing I got a wagon so the headliner comes out without taking out windows.

    I'm doing everything I can to make something happen today as far as at least getting seat belts in the car and getting it on the road for the rest of the tour goes. Spoke with the dealer. They were going to look into things and call me back.

    ----------

    Optima loves the car and wants me to do thier shootout thing in TX as well. Gave my friend a card to give me to contact them.

    +1 Been tracking and a few autocrosses with no air bag issues.

    I guess every car built in the world is a piece of shit since they all have some type of problem sooner or later. Granted I'd be pissed if it happened but shit happens all the time. My V is certainly not a piece of shit. Sorry you feel that way about yours.

    Any details you can provide as to what was going on when the air bags deployed? Accelerating, decelerating, high g turn, etc ?

    I loved this car and have defended them here until this happen. but yeah, all cars are pieces of shit I've referred to every vehicle I've owned as such at some point for some reason Maybe just not on a forum.

    Can anyone see this video?

    That's what was going on. Not much of anything really. I had like .92 peak on one side and .87 peak on the other, never left first gear. I guess I was acceling out of a slalom.

    Just drive it. You don't need seatbelts.

    In that case I completely agree I've called all my cars bad names while working on them. Particularly after busting knuckle or throwing a tool

    Hope they find out what happened. Bet it scared the crap out of you when it happened!

    I cannot access the video but my firewall blocks facebook at my company. No need to have my employees on facebook all day
