The U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued a consumer safety advisory to alert vehicle owners and repair professionals to the dangers of counterfeit air bags. NHTSA has become aware of a problem involving the sale of counterfeit air bags for use as replacement parts in vehicles that have been involved in a crash.

 

 

While these air bags look nearly identical to certified, original equipment parts—including bearing the insignia and branding of major automakers — NHTSA testing 1 showed consistent malfunctioning ranging from non-deployment of the air bag to the expulsion of metal shrapnel during deployment. NHTSA is not aware of any deaths or injuries connected to counterfeit air bags.

 


 

 

This has impacted our local area with individuals involved in selling counterfeit airbags arrested.

 

When the worst thing happens, a car accident with potential serious injury, you don't want to get injured by your airbags in addition to the collison.

 

If you've been injured as a result of a faulty airbag in an auto accident, please call me for a free consultation.
