Another case of a GM model and one of its airbags opening without a collision of any sorts during a fast ride on the track has hit the web. The first one we reported on concerned a Chevrolet Camaro back in August of 2011 ( read here ), when the coupe’s side airbags deployed while the driver was drifting the car. We don’t know if they are related, but a similar incident occurred earlier this week when according to Jalopnik , GM Engineer Brad Doerr took his Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon for fun day of auto-crossing before his wedding.
“I hear a bang, and I thought I’d gotten hit by a truck in the door, but I look out and there’s a side curtain airbag,” Doerr explained. Doerr then received a call from OnStar, a representative of which offered to send a tow truck as the operator assumed he had crashed, something that caused the soon-to-be married engineer to explode like his airbag.
