Ever Have Your Airbags Go Off For No Reason? I Did!!!
Hi all. It'* been a while since I've been on this site...Nice to be back!
I've gotta cray story for Ya! I was going down the street in the morning on the way to work and BLAH!!!! My driver'* side airbag went off in my face! After wiping the powder from my eyes and pulling my freshly coffee stained shirt from my body, I realized what had happened. Now,I drive a '96 SSEI and it is a beauty...clean as hell and relatively low miles (130,000ish) I immediatley called GM'* Claim dept and was directed to Pontiac'* blah, blah, blah Dept. Dealt with a complete ******* and told him my story. He said he would set up a 'third party' inspection. Inspection dude calls me at 9:30pm on Sunday!to "get my car to the nearest dealer of my choice by Monday morning to have it checked out. I do, and I stay in the shop at Champion Chevy in Brighton, MI while they work on my car. As soon as Inspection Guy gets over to my car, he has the mechanic pop the trunk in looks inside. He pulls the carpet down from the left-hand side of the trunk to find a gaping rust hole. This hole measures about 6"8", right around the area of the strut tower. I think " he knew to look in that spot", right?
Gm claims responsibility and offers me $1500 for the car, and they take it from me....Isnt that bullshit????
SHOULD I SUE?
Does your Bonne of aroung the same year have a rust hole in that area????
I went to the junkyard locally by my...Meichle'* Auto Salvage...and found 8 Bonnes, with my body style. I found 3 that have rust goin on in the same spot!!!
Thanks for readin this guys & girls! Any feedback is greatly appreciated!!!
