Imagine hooning about a Chevrolet Camaro in an open clearing of perfectly flat pavement, when suddenly, BANG! Airbags. Airbags all up in your face. That’s what happened to a guy earlier this month in Michigan. Not surprisingly, it was caught on video. The incident also involved OnStar, and a pair of EMTs to cut away the curtain airbags so the Camaro could continue being driven. The driver didn’t seem too bent out of shape, however, with a horned fist popping through the sunroof as the incident happened.
Interestingly enough, this isn’t the first unintended airbag deployment captured on film involving a GM vehicle and performance driving, as there have been multiple reports citing other Camaros and the CTS-V as well. Still, no NHTSA investigation, and no recalls for the Camaro’s side curtain airbags.
Fair warning: there is some foul language in the video.
