Or i could be wrong and it wasn't a design fault but because someone took a kitten to work one day and a few people were distracted, and they are diligently trying to find what vehicles may have had the kitten distracted airbags installed.

This might sound silly given the topic of airbags but I just wonder if it would be a better thing to disable the airbags for a short time while they built up a stockpile of replacements compared to leaving them in place and operational with the risk that when they go off the person sitting behind (or is that in front of) the airbag has a likelihood of being badly hurt by the very thing that is supposed to protect them.

I am about to book my car for 75k service.
Will ask them to conduct airbags recall, if they don't have them, they can take them out then and install new ones when they become available, if they refuse then I will be asking them keep their IED (improvised explosive device) on wheels .... frikin muppets... I don't know about you guys, but I am not willing to drive my familly around in a gillotine on wheels waiting for silly thing to go off and decapitate someoene.

There is no point deactivating them as they can just go off anyway.

I agree its pretty poor form in taking so long to rectify this. Got my "Advance Customer Notification " letter last September. Since then nada. Can only
hope I'm wearing my saftey/driving glasses and they save my eyes if it goes off.

Cheers,
Jim.

Probably because Mitsubishi hasn't sent out recall letters yet!!!

If it wasn't for this forum, I wouldn't have even known there is a second airbag recall (driver's side then passenger's side)
