Thieves are stealing Honda airbags and reselling them on the black market

In the past, car thieves have gone for unattended items, radio head units, and even the car itself. Now they’re going for airbags. According to a report by USA Today, there has been a recent spike in airbag thefts in many major markets around the country.

The airbags, which can sell for over $1,000 a piece on the black market, are being stolen disproportionately from new Honda vehicles like the Civic and Accord, and leaving owners saddled with the high cost of replacement.
