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
The 300 nbr came form clarance ditlow who i think makes a living
testifying on class action law suits. i remember his outfit came up with
the large nbr on the toyota gas pedal sticking etc, they ended up with
5. The lawyers are all over this form public opinion now and get large
judgment on class action suits and the lawyers get most of the money and
the people get penneys
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.

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
