"Criminals throughout the country are stealing airbags out of relatively new Honda cars for apparent resale to questionable repair shops or unsuspecting online customers."

From a USA Today report by Nathan Bomey.

The National Insurance Crime Bureau explains:

“Because of their portability, airbags can be easily removed and installed as ‘new’ by unscrupulous collision repair shops. These dishonest operators will then charge the vehicle owner or their insurer the full price for the replacement, thus committing insurance fraud.”
