Anyone else heard this?

my grandmother is prepping for a class action lawsuit over the issues with the cobalt, and she overheard something that may have not been true, but i thought i would mention on here. She had heard that in certain frontal collisions, the air bags on particular models of cobalt and pursuits DO NOT DEPLOY.

If anyone can confirm or deny this claim, please do so.

There was a problem with cars not equipped with side curtain air bags. Without them serious head injury could occur. There was a recall at least a yr ago now to fix this that GM installs some sort of plastic to drop out on cars that don't have the air bags. With this being said I think your grandma is wasting her time and money trying to sue them.

Coming from a guy who has nothing better to do than post attacks on someones car in a thread that has nothing to do with that.

Well GM definitely has its faults at times, but normally they catch that stuff pretty quick. I dont know how valid the suit would be.

My turbo lag is your courtesy head start.

well, seeing that particular accident should have set off the airbags, but did not! i dont know why.

As for the rice comment, idc, it's what i want to do to my car, you do what you want to yours.
