Counterfeit Airbag Warning

Post by GiveMeABreak »

Just a warning regarding airbags being sold on ebay as genuine - with potentially disastrous results if these were to go off. It features on BBC news today - the investigation showed pictures in the states where, when activated, they blew up with debris and plastic firing into the face!

Although the investigation focussed on Honda, they are also looking at other airbags for other manufacturers being sold in the same way. Article:

So be aware!
