Common Automobile Defects
Automobile defects can range from fuel system failures to seat belt failures. Here are a few examples of automobile defects.
Fuel System Failures
As for fuel system failures, a vehicle can experience what is referred to as PCFFF, or post-collision fuel fed fire. A perfect example of this is when a vehicle erupts into fire flames because a fuel system is inadequately designed, or the fuel tank has a puncture.
Seat Belt Failures
With seat belt failures, the vehicle seat belt may have plenty of slack. It may fail in a collision to restrain the passenger.
Airbag failures can be harmful if activated with immense force causing severe neck and/or head injury to the vehicle occupant. There are also situations where airbags fail to deploy causes the riders extreme injury in an accident.
