Hmmm, I cannot really follow your numbers. How much was the repair? When you traded in the car, the car was already repaired, right?

Side airbags deployed today in 2009 Nissan Rogue after simply closing the door while parked in my driveway. Police, Fire, EMT. Facial burns, lost hearing in right ear. Cops said they haven't seen anything like this before. Internet full of stories like this. Another Toyota thing?
If it had happened while I was driving, I would have been killed and people would have thought the airbags deployed simply because of the accident. The Rogue is Rogue. Class action suit anyone?

Hello, after over a year of fighting with the insurance company, they finally agreed to read to 'black box'. The airbags deployed at 7 km per hour. Took over 2 months to get the report as Nissan admitted that there was a problem. Our next step is to try get the dangerous driving charge thrown out of court, then we will see how we proceed after that.
It is a sad situation when our governments allow these foreign companies to do business here and not look out for the safety of its citizens. Someone needs to make an example out of some of these companies so this kind of stuff does not continue to happen. Toyota, pet food, lead in paint on kids toys, etc, all in the name of the mighty dollar.

I have had the same thing happen as well. On January 3, 2011 my son was backing out of a driveway and when he put the car into drive both side airbags deployed. He was driving no faster than 2-5 kms/hr. he had a headach and his ears were ringing for a few days. i am glad that he did not receive any burns from them and that no one was seriously hurt. I had the car towed to Nissan in London Ontario and they too said that the car was involved in a rollover and that the air bags protected my son from the impact. I called the insurance company and they stated that since there was not evidence of dammage/accident they were not going to do anything about it and that it is a vehicle defect. January 23rd my lease expired and since they still had my car because i refused to repair it i returned the other set of Keys and the accessories that i had purchased. Today (March21, 2011) i received a bill in the mail from Nissan requiring me to pay the repair bill. I have contacted a lawyer and he said to send a letter to them with all the support of other situations and recall information I could find and refuse to pay the bill.
on a side note... the air bags remained deployed for about 45 minutes at least. they were still deployed when the towtruck came to pick it up.
this is crazy

Good luck. It seems that big business screws the consumer. We are still fighting the dangerous driving ticket that was issued after the air bags deployed. This whole thing is turned out to be such a joke. We have no faith in the Canadian government with regards to protecting the consumer. We have no faith in the legal system, as the charge was not warranted but the prosecutor is not willing to drop the charge. Since this has happened, we have gotten married, had a baby girl, who is now 9 month old and we have another 3 months till the next court date. At least in our case, Nissan admitted(or not admitted but we pursued it long enough that they read the airbag control box, that is where the problem was shown) that there was a problem with the air bags and that they should NOT have deployed.
