I do apologize for the bad typing, I usually do not type a lot. All I
am trying to do is figure this out, I have been thru this for quite
sometime and now that the manufacturer has agreed to switch my car, now
the bank is giving me headaches. I just need some advise, I am new to
this postings and I had no idea how it worked, I was hoping someone
would be experiencing the same, any ways I can take all kinds of
criticism, after all that's why I am here for.
I'm presuming that you have a 110lb person who doesn't activate the
Did your dealer review with you the proper way for the passenger to be
Was the dealer able to confirm there was an actual problem with the
vehicle? If so, do you know how they did this and what their findings
What actions has the dealer already taken in an attempt to repair your
well they have done this and tried that it has been extenuating, the
problem now is that the bank wants me to refinance the new car instead
of doing a collateral transfer, or substitution of collaterall i do not
know the legal term.......anybody know if they do it because someone
told me all banks do that after all they are switching their own
collateral. any suggestions??
Hi....just to butt in in a related vein....
My '05 Santa Fe doesn't seem to have the passenger airbag
activated/deactivated by the presence of a weight in the seat....there is no
mention of it in the manual so I assume that the airbag is always
active....yet I've heard that there are some Santa Fe's that have this
feature....Which models/countrys/years etc. do they have this feature?
....Order the "Accordion Evolution" documentary of the Las Vegas
International Accordion Convention from my website:
Well.. when they offered me a replacement vehicle to replace my 05
Elantra they told me I could get the Sonata or the Tucson but not the
Santa Fe because it has the same weight activation features as my
elantra, I think it is on usa only models each coultry has it own rules
and regulations of safety for the road, I suggest you check if this is
true most likely you will have a window that displays " passenger air
bag off " and it should go off if someone heavier than 56 pounds sits
in the seat but the problem with my car is that my wife weights about
105 lb and even after having it fixed it still does not work, i do not
want to start anything but what i would do is check for any recalls and
it would not hurt to have it checked it should be under warranty right??
The thing that puts "loved ones" in the most danger is relying on
technology rather than skill. For the cost of the airbags in our cars,
we could put owners through a comprehensive driving course and make the
roads far safer for everyone. If it wasn't for idiots like you suing car
companies because of airbag related injuries to kids, we wouldn't have
to deal with airbag sensor systems that aren't 100% reliable. Anyone
that relies on passive safety is a fool.
In this case, the lawyers win either way. If someone gets hurt - child
or adult, they sue. If the system doesn't work 100% correctly, they file
a class action. If you think any of these attorneys give a rat's ass
about safety, you're seriously deluded. It's all about money and who has
the deepest pocket. You're just playing into their hands with your silly
web site and class action organization. The bottom line is that they're
going to make a bundle, you'll get little or nothing and you're probably
still going to be stuck with an airbag sensor system that's imperfect.
Ultimately, we'll all pay more for our next car, thanks to fools like
you and greedy attorneys who are all to happy to sue in their name.
You're looking for people who can't read and aren't smart enough figure
out that when the air bag is off, it won't deploy.
And bringing our loved ones into it. . nice touch.
No wonder we all think so highly of lawyers. Next class action suit
should be against companies who make traffic signals with lights that
are red and yet people go through them anyway.
has anybody done anything about this?? any lawsuits yet??? they offered
me a replacement vehicle but my bank does not do substitution of
collateral and i do not qualify for another loan what can i do???
