What does I-CAR say about using recycled airbags?

Response

Per I-CAR curriculum: “I-CAR does not recommend using recycled airbag modules. Without knowing the condition or history of the vehicle, it is difficult to know if the airbag functioned properly during the last collision. It is also difficult to know if the airbag has been previously repaired. Therefore, using recycled airbags may pose an unnecessary liability risk.”
