    I heard that an accident in Ayala ave involving an Optra (owned by a schoolmate of mine from a high school higher batch) and a taxi almost two weeks ago. The airbag of an Optra didnt deploy. What can you say?

    Any idea on the the circumstances surrounding the accident (i.e. manner of impact, type of impact, etc.)? That would be helpful in determining if an airbag deployment was warranted.

    Airbag sensors only deploy the airbags at a certain force threshold.

    Kung mga 50kph na yung head on and hindi pa rin nag deploy, there's something wrong talaga. kung mga 30kph lang, i think borderline pa.

    According to my Ford Hand book..the airbag should deploy at a minimum speed of 8 kph upon frontal collision.

    May optra kami kaso hindi namin masyado nagagamit because of the rising oil price...Di ba dapat magdeploy pa rin yung airbag kahit na malakas ang impact tapos head on collision pa yun?
    Pambihira SRS pa naman yung airbag na nakalagay...
