You can sue them under a product liability claim for your personal injuries but you should be covered for that under your auto insurance or health insurance anyway and you cannot doulble collect.


You can have them look at the airbags and make any corrections under the warranty but you cannot sue for an entirely new vehicle. Sorry.
