Counterfeit airbags new concern for NHTSA

(WFLX) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is warning drivers and car repair shops about the sale of counterfeit airbags.

The bags have been used as replacement parts in vehicles that have been involved in a crash.

Testing by the NHTSA found the airbags failed to deploy or others discharged metal shrapnel during deployment.
