2000 Ford Mustang from North America
A very dangerous defective car
My head hit the steering wheel when the airbags did not deploy, going at 50 MPH. I had 18 stitches on my forehead and a haemorrhage and lost consciousness. And also the convertible came apart. A really bad car in case of an accident. Not recommended! The car was totaled.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I was the victim of an airbag during an accident. I can tell you that not having an air bag is not a bad thing. I wear glasses and when the air bag went off my glasses were pushed into my face. As a result I had two black eyes and cuts which also required stitches. Even that did not hurt as much as the head ache I had after being smashed in the face with the air bag.

So you would rather hit your face and glasses against the hard plastic of the steering wheel, than the airbag? You drove your vehicle into a solid object and smashed it to pieces, and ended up with a headache? Wow, Ford should be ashamed!
Airbags are designed to reduce injuries, not to make a 50 mph crash a pleasant experience. Maybe you geniuses should concentrate on trying not to hit things when you go out in your car each day.

50 mph?! ANYTHING will smash apart at 50 mph! Especially a coup. A ford 150 will be crushed to the glass doing 50 into an object.
