I was in a pretty bad wreck a few years ago and my air bag as well as the seat belt saved me. My belt was a little loose on my lap and my knees hit the dash but my face was stopped by the air bag from hitting the steering wheel. Bruised knees a scuff mark on my face and bruises on my chest and lap where the seat belt caught me. I know always put on the seat belt and then pull it tight to get rid of all the slack from your clothes holding it off your lap.

In my wreck a guy made a u-turn in front of my on a two lane hwy. I was doing 50mph hit him broadside right between the wheels dead center. His car was a chevy lumina mine a toyota Prieva. I pushed his passenger side doors almost to the drivers seat and rolled him over, just lucky he had no passenger of there would have been death that night.

I was a firefighter from 1990-1999 and I can tell you that IF you do not have a seat belt on and the airbag deploys in a head-on collision that the air bag WILL

be a fatal instrument. However, with that being said, it is my opinion that the

Federal Government should not "make" me purchase an airbag. Just like a

helmet, it should be left up to me to decide if I want to protect myself. Don't

misunderstand, these tools of safety are a credible source of a longer lifespan.

Whew, I feel better... ;)

I was just in a head on accident 4 weeks and my 2004 RX 330 was totaled. Both the steering air bag & the knee bag was deployed (and I was wearing a seat belt). I can tell you that I was extremely grateful I was able to walk out of the hospital that same night without loosing one drop of blood. No cuts just some bruises.

I can't tell you enough how I appreciate all the safety feature in this vehicle.

I just bought another 2005 RX 330 (thanks to my insurance since the other person at fault did not have any). After what it's done for me, I don't think I would even consider another brand of vehicle.

I hope this answers your question of "if airbags are necessary" :unsure:
