“Why didn’t my car inflate the airbag, while the Nissan Grand Livina that hit my car had the airbag inflated,” said Evia, quoted from Gridoto.com.
Evia emphasized that when he was involved in an accident he used the seatbelt correctly and there was no indicator of an airbag malfunction on the instrument panel.
“I was driving on a mountain road with a speed of about 40 km / h, the seatbelt was installed perfectly, and there was no indicator of a malfunctioning airbag,” explained Evia.
For this incident, Evia reported to a Toyota dealer in Garut about the airbag in her Toyota Fortuner which did not inflate during the accident.
