I am curious to see how many have had a problem with airbags not deploying. I love "ed" my escalade and swore to fix anything that happened to it in order to keep it since the model (EXT) was discontinued. I rebuilt the tranny last march, new water pump, window motor/regulator, last month, new tires month before and new front differential last week and Monday my son was involved in an accident laying it to rest. the vehicle was smashed front and back, buckled in middle so doors wouldn't open without "popping" fender on driver side and not at all on passenger side.... my point being not one airbag went off. Thank God my son wasn't hurt more severely but now I cant trust buying another one. It breaks my heart that they didn't deploy and prevent what did happen to him but what if it had been worse....I cannot imagine!!
