Let me start off by saying I never had a complaint about my '03 Tribute LS. I liked the car a lot. However, I was just involved in an accident where I T-Boned another car. We were both going at a pretty decent rate of speed and while my Tribute had it's entire front smashed in (car was totaled), the air bags never deployed. It took a direct hit in the front at a good speed and they never deployed. So far, everyone that has seen the car (paramedics, cops, insurance adjuster, body shop, etc...) has said they can't believe they didn't deploy. This is the only thing that is keeping me from getting another Mazda, and I was just wondering if anyone else has had similiar experiences with their Tributes or Mazdas where air bags failed to deploy. When I get a pic of the car from the body shop, I'll see if I can post it here.
