Honda Informative - Deffective Airbags - Rollover Accident NONE of airbags deployed
NEBRASKA -- On November 19th, 2007 I was coming home from work alone in my 2006 Honda Civic Ex on a dirt road. I was not speeding and I was wearing my seatbelt. I chose a different route from my normal route and missed the S curve in the road. My car went to the ditch roughly 3 feet deep on the drivers side, hitting the driviers front, rolling the car one time, landing on the wheels and I put the brakes on, put the car in park and turned off the car. I then got out of the passenger side of the car because the driver side was smashed completely down not allowing me to get out of the car or the window. I could not find my cell phone and went and looked into the field and found where my car rolled and found the phone with the glass from my window. I then called 911 and waited for assistance. I was transportated to Sidney, Ne where after a catscan they found that I had a broken neck in 2 places C6 and C7. They then transferred me by ambulance to Fort Collins, Colorado where I had surgery to fuse the broken vertebreas. I am now out of work and out of a vehichle for now until I am healed. I called Honda worried that NONE of the airbags went off, one of the reasons I bought this car was because of the safety rating because I wanted my family to be safe in any event of an accident. Honda after I called them back 2 times finially told me that (Case# N012007-11-2900916) Honda does not design their airbags to go off in the event of a rollover. Funny how when I did my research 1 out of 4 people are killed in a rollover. Why wouldn't that be a safety concern?? So needless to say there is nothing done to fix the situation. Please feel free to email me at email@example.com we need to stick together and win this safety feature!!
