Air bags

I drive a 2005 Chevrolet If somebody hits my car on the rear of my car or on the side of my car, will my air bags erupt or will it only erupt on a front end collision? Thank you. abxxx

Air bags are designed to deploy under a limited set of circumstances. At this time I’m not aware of any vehicles that have air bags triggered by a rear impact.

Some vehicles have side airbags, and some have only front airbags. Most newer vehicles have some combination of front and side air bags.

Chevrolet makes many different models. The number and placement of the airbags in your Chevy, and the force and direction of any impact, will determine which air bags, if any, are deployed.

There might be a crash in which NO airbags are deployed.

I suggest you consult the owner’s manual for specific information about the function of your vehicle’s air bags.
