NHTSA Releases Counterfeit Airbag Test Video

Counterfeit airbags are dangerous, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration wants consumers to see the risks for themselves.

Last week, NHSTA issued a report about a rise in the number of counterfeit airbags infiltrating vehicle repair shops, and the dangerous consequences to drivers. The group's tests have found that many of these bags consistently malfunction; issues reported range from non-deployment to shrapnel being projected during deployment.

Check out NHTSA's video demonstration below.
