Buying used airbags is a viable solution for rebuilding crashed vehicles!
But are recycled airbags safe to use?
As a company who has been distributing airbags since 1999 it is our opinion that used airbags are a safe alternative for vehicles who are totaled solely on the replacement cost of new airbags. But more importantly, they are a viable solution for individuals who can not afford to buy new airbags based on the current blue book value of their vehicle. However, it is important to educate yourself to learn about critical differences when purchasing a used airbag.
"Not all used airbags are created equal!"
Our largest competitors of used airbags are salvage yards and auto recyclers. However, there are many important distinctions between the Airbag Center and the salvage industry. First, recyclers have very little if any knowledge of the parts they dismantle. There job is to take apart cars as quickly as possible and make a return on investment from the parts. Generally, the individuals removing the parts cut important wires, break connectors, damage vinyl covers and worst yet, some airbags are left outside exposing them to water and moisture. Second, auto recyclers do not poses any technical skills and therefore have a difficult time properly documenting the airbags. All these issues expose recyclers to a large volume of returns and ultimately installing the wrong airbag in your car can be a disaster waiting to happen.
