Your Car May Have Counterfeit Airbags, See If Your Car Is On The List

(Photo by Bill Pugliano/Getty Images)

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued a statement saying that they have arrested a small ring of auto part suppliers that have been selling counterfeit airbags to be installed in cars. They have released a list for you to check and see if your car is on the list.

Check to see if your car is on the list by clicking HERE. The counterfeit ring has been stopped in time so that no injuries or deaths have been caused from the airbags. The government is doing their best to get the word out in order to prevent any deaths at all.

The airbags in question don’t inflate correctly, some have spread chards of metal when inflated.

According to FOXNEWS

If a car is on the list and has had its air bags replaced during the past three years by a repair shop other than a new car dealership, NHTSA is asking owners to bring the vehicle into a dealership to be inspected at their own expense to determine whether the replaced air bags are counterfeit. Fees for checking out air bags could run $100 or more, industry officials said. Some types of cars have as many as eight air bags.
