The only reason to go after the dealership would be if they did something wrong (such as negligent repair) or failed to do something they were supposed to do (such as inspect). Otherwise, you go after the manufacturer. But: you will have to prove, with expert witness testimony, that had the airbag deployed, she would have lived, not "might have". This will take years of litigation and will cost tens of thousands of dollars.
