idk but assume you'll be at the top of the list......until it's road worthy your insurance will cover rental car (if you have that coverage).

1st to say that sux assume you are OK at least you didn't hit anyone or their stuff

Although not ideal, its still drivable without the air bag. Heck, it may be safer driving it without an air bag in the car than it was with the recalled airbag in the car.

You won't be able to drive the car legally until it's fixed.

I wonder if there's any truth to this statement that's about a year old now but had popped up in many articles.

"For a temporary fix, Toyota is instructing its dealerships to disable air bags and attach notes on vehicles’ glove boxes warning against riding in the passenger seat."

Captain obvious. I don't believe anyone was asking why. But cool input.

I wouldn't be surprised if they total loss the vehicle once they get it on a frame rack.


The front end parts on our cars are $$$ the fog lamps are 600 and your headlamp housing alone is 1000. It will add up quick.

Glad your ok. I wouldn't think anyone would know if your airbag is there or not.

Ya, I know what you mean. When I wrecked my 2010 GT, from the outside, the front end damage didn't appear to be real bad. Once inspected it was totaled with more that $10k in damage. The air bags didn't even deploy. Granted his car has a higher value than mine did but it really doesn't take much anymore o total a car.
That's why you see so many salvaged titled mustangs for sale these days.

I believe that (on the airbag parts). I worked at a body shop in college, and occasionally when there was a parts shortage of some sort - the dealers could get the parts, but you had to provide additional data (like a valid VIN) in order to get the parts order to go through. I wouldn't worry about availability too much.

I believe it. The airbags are pricey plus the ones in the seats deployed. Plus all Ford OEM parts plus whatever else they found with the subframe/front clip PLUS paint PLUS labor... adds up quick.

I'm assuming no chance of them totaling it even at $11k but damn...
