I see vehicles of all makes come in on the tow truck from accidents with varying airbags not deployed, when the damage to the vehicles shows they should have been.
I also see cars with air bag system faults that customer don't want to fix for $800....and they don't get fixed

Just from seeing a crashed car on a tow truck you are able to reconstruct the accident and know the speed and impact points? You should be working for the FBI or CIA with you amazing talent.
I've seen some nasty looking sheet metal in minor crashes that were not hard or fast enough for airbags. But I'm not a pro.

Without knowing more about the accident you cannot draw a conclusion. At times they do not deploy, such as an offset head on. You are just guessing. Your opinion does not make facts.

I have to agree with that. There is little goodwill from the auto makers. Their solution to any problem with your car is "buy a new one" That work a couple of decades ago.
The quality of cars has improved considerably over the years. In the 50's and 60's, if you bought a new car, a couple of weeks later you took it back to the dealer with a list of five to twenty five items that needed fixing or adjusting. Now, for most GM cars it is down to one to three. With my last three Hyundais though, it was zero.
GM drove me away because of problems they did not stand behind. Never thought I'd be driving anything but GM cars, especially a Hyundai, but I've learned.
