I have a 2014 Chevy Malibu. My husband and I hit
a deer and the airbag triggered, but didn't inflate.
We could smell what ever it is that comes out and
I have a warning light on the dash that says service
airbag. Thankfully we weren't in anything serious!
Is this a manufacturer defect?
Air bags are a big issue right now, I would contact the NTSB and an attorney, see what they have to say about it. Then proceed from there. Who knows, it may have just been a bad part, it does happen.
