I had to post this topic to help anyone I can. Last week I got into a car accident (it wasn't with fast, I drive a Lexus GX truck). Well the air bag deployed and at the time everything was ok. I didn't even face plant into it. Well with pain and long story short, I have the surgery Tuesday morning. It seems that airbag caught my thumb and snapped it back. The surgery will reattach the ligaments, and I will be then in cast to heal for 6 weeks and then rehab after that. I was ready to go to VW dealer and grab my fast in a week when this happened. Maybe I will when cast comes off, that should cheer me up. ANYWAY, when your driving keep thumbs to outside of the steering wheel, cause that airbag could catch it by mistake.
