WE RECEIVED A SAFETY NOTICE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF DRIVER SIDE AIR BAG DEPLOYMENT DUE TO DEFECTIVE INFLATOR IN JULY OF 2000. I CONTACTED BUICK IN DECEMBER 2000 WONDERING WHY WE HAD NOT HEARD ANYTHING ABOUT RECALL AND WAS TOLD 3 TO 6 MONTHS MORE BEFORE REPAIR WOULD BE AVAILABLE. THEY DID REPLACE THE DEFECTIVE PART WITH A NEW OLD PART THAT HAD NOT SUFFERED THE DEGRADATION OF TIME. THIS TEMPORARY REPLACEMENT WAS/IS TO HOLD ME OVER UNTIL THE PROPER PART BECOMES AVAILABLE. MY COMPLAINT IS THE ORIGINAL LETTER STATED THE REPAIR WOULD BE AVAILABLE IN SEVERAL MONTHS. I WAITED 6 MONTHS TO BE TOLD 3 TO 6 MORE MONTHS. WHAT IF I SELL OR TRADE THIS VEHICLE IN DOES THE MANUFACTURER TRACK THIS VEHICLE DOWN THROUGH REGISTRATION INFORMATION OR DOES THE VEHICLE GO UNREPAIRED AT A COST SAVINGS TO THE MANUFACTURER? A RESPONSE TO MY CONCERNS WOULD BE APPRECIATED. THANK YOU. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):2G4WF52L6S1. Car problem was reported in BANCROFT, MI. Car had an original Owner.

FORD RANGER | DRIVING 60MPH ON INTERSTATE PHEASANT FLEW LOW IN FRONT OF VERHICLE, AS THE PHEASANT DISAPEARED IN FROM MY VIEW THE TRUCK DID AN ABRUPT SWIRVE TO THE LEFT, I HAD NO STEERING CONTROL, | SHERMANSDALE,PA | 2000

DRIVING 60MPH ON INTERSTATE PHEASANT FLEW LOW IN FRONT OF VERHICLE, AS THE PHEASANT DISAPEARED IN FROM MY VIEW THE TRUCK DID AN ABRUPT SWIRVE TO THE LEFT, I HAD NO STEERING CONTROL, THE TRUCK WENT FROM THE RIGHT LANE ACCROSS PASSING LANE AND HIT HEAD ON INTO FLAT CONCRETE BERRIER, THE AIR BAGS DID NOT DEPLOY, OVER $9,000 IN DAMAGE INCLUDING NEW FRAME. WHEN THE TRUCK WAS BEING HOISTED ONTO ROLLBACK I NOTICED THAT THE TIE ROD WAS HANGING. THE YOKE WHERE THE TIE ROD IS BOLTED TO (CAST IRON) WAS BROKEN OFF AND I NOTICED A LOT OF PHEASANT REMAINS ON THE TIEROD AND SUSPENSION. I AM VERY CONCERNED THAT A SMALL BIRD AS THIS WOULD CAUSE THE CAST IRON YOKE TO BREAK, ALSO WHY MY AIRBAGS DID NOT DEPLOY. THE FRONT TIRE AND RIM DID NOT IMPACT THE CONCRETE BERRIER. WHEN I SAW THE PHEASANT I DID NOT REACT TO IT, I DID NOT TURN THE WHEEL OR HIT THE BRAKES, THIS MAY SOUND FUNNY BUT THE TRUCK SWIRVED LEFT DIRRECTLY INTO THE BERRIER. THE SEAT BELT SAVED ME FROM SERIOUS INJURY. MY MAIN CONCERN IS THE PC THAT THE TIE ROD MOUNTS TO AND NO AIR BAG DEPLOYMENT *AK Date Reported:Dec 20, 2000.
