Anyway, with over $7000 damage, I will dump the car for as much as I can and depart from Fords.

So what does it take to deploy Airbags, here is my Silver car... this was 55+mph

No I was not driving it.. but the old guy that did suffered more hurt from the airbag then the dash...










Here is the car today, all better... most of the airbag system has been repaired, almost finished with the little stuff...

2 different cars, 2 different accidents, 2 different results, so Kinda a expert on the how much it takes to get screwed, the blue car is more then cosmetic but was T-boned by a truck that hit me at 40

Last time I was in a major accident the repaired car was nothing but a headache. I got tired of fighting with the Insurance adjuster and the body shop and dumped it.
That is why I will do likewise with this car.
Want to buy it? Only 4000 miles. :)

imo, Ford cost you less in repairs then was needed by not deploying airbags is my point... the computer is very smart compareed to the 90s when it was to easy to Pop the steering wheel airbag
