I was very shocked to learn that Cadillac recalled the SRX for airbag deployment during the start of the engine. My airbags (driver steering wheel & driver side) exploded while my car was in park. I guess I was the first one to experience this horrific accident.

GM offered to buy back my car but I had to haggle with them about returning my interest payments (I financed through GM). After 4 months they bought back the car. Last week, they offered to pay $750.00 for the personal injuries that I suffered. I turned it down because that wouldn't even cover the MRI that my medical insurance ended up paying for.

Has anyone else experienced their air bags deploying while the car is in park? I would love to hear your story.

Glad you're OK. I would imagine GM would settle for substantially more than 750.00. Just be sure it's for pain and suffering not for your medical bill so your insurance can't subrogate!
