I'm heart-broken. With only 6300 miles on our XL, we were rear-ended by a huge truck with a big steel bumper yesterday. Happily, the car did a good job of protecting us, as there were only minor injuries. I've posted a picture so you can see just how badly we were hit (totaled I'm sure). I have a few questions for anyone who's had a similar experience:
- None of our airbags deployed. Is this because we were hit from behind?
- There was a small amount of what appeared to be white smoke drifting thru the cabin, but we could see no reason for it. With all the talk about exploding batteries, I was a bit concerned. Since none of the airbags deployed, I didn't think it was a result of propellent. Any ideas?
- I haven't picked up the thumb drive, as the car is still at the police impound lot. Would the system have recorded the crash?
