    Fake air bags

    Lots of used cars have been in accidents, meaning many will have deployed the original air bag. The scam is that not all auto-repair shops bother to replace the air bag. You won't know one way or the other until it is too late - so always check before buying a used vehicle.

    I was watching Sopranos on Amazon Prime and this was a recurring scam the New Jersey Mafiosa was doing...fake and/or stolen airbags.

    Scamming fake air bags is a nasty call for Karma to screw you later. Imagine a mom or dad or kid dying because the place you got an oil change stole your airbag. Mama Mia!

    How do we know if the air bag is original or not. because they will say we have put new air bag.

    Australia’s peak consumer protection authority was told about bogus airbag parts six weeks ago, but has so far failed to take action.

    Australia's consumer protection authority has known about potentially deadly counterfeit Toyota airbag parts for the past six weeks -- but has not used any of its powers to stop distribution or take action against the unscrupulous importers.
    As reported exclusively by News Corp Australia yesterday, Toyota has embarked on a nationwide search for “thousands” of counterfeit airbag parts, instructing dealers to inspect all vehicles when they come in for routine servicing.
    The devices fit most of the 2 million Toyotas sold in Australia over the past 10 years. Internal testing by Toyota in Japan found there were up to four ways the bogus parts could fail to deploy an airbag in a crash.
    Toyota has been forced to take the matter into its own hands because the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has so far refused to take action, even though the Federal Minister has the discretion to order an interim ban.
    According to ACCC regulations, the responsible Federal Minister, in this case Bruce Billson MP, may impose an interim ban “where it appears that consumer goods of the kind in question will or may cause injury to any person”.

    I think Donald Trump himself is a big air bag full of hot air. But back to the thread. It is a shame that we find out about this criminal act after the fact when it is too late.
