NHTSA to issue warning about counterfeit airbags

Posted at: 10/10/2012 6:27 AM

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is expected to issue a warning Wednesday to drivers who have had their car airbags replaced in the past three years.

Those airbags could have been replaced with dangerous counterfeit airbags and those bags could fail to inflate in a crash. Thousands of vehicles could be affected.

The best thing to do is to contact your local dealership.
