    Re: First Experience in a V-Wagon - Deployed Airbags

    If the airbag goes off like this, is it covered by the bumper-to-bumper warranty?

    I would argue like crazy but I've read somewhere that someone said 'no'.

    I would hope the answer is "yes" given that it's a manufacturer defect.

    While I would agree, GM will probably pull the G-meter info and determine it was during a "race" and deny the claim. Sad but true.

    That's BS. They might as well just say:

    "The airbag went off, but I wasn't in a crash. That's defective operation; you should pay to replace the airbag."
    "But you were racing."
    "What makes you say that?"
    "Well the airbag went off, but you weren't in a crash. Obviously."

    If I avoid a deer, pedestrian, cone, curb, you name it and don't hit anything but the air bags deploy, I will cry to high hell if its not covered under warranty. And I'd never buy another GM vehicle again.

    I was told the side curtains and associated parts would not be covered under warranty by someone but my car was fixed under warranty. I'm not sure how much having a video that showed the incident helped when getting that covered though. Without video evidence that the car didn't reach the criteria for air bag deployment I'm not sure how that would be handled.

    I might be tracking my car this weekend. Would you guys recommend pulling the fuse for airbags?

    And is that fuse 25 in the rearfuse box? I guess that inactivates all the airbags and not just the curtain ones.

    n/m figured it out. Pulled it. No airbag deploy. Vroom Vroom. Yay
