According to the publication USA Today, only in the Miami-Dade district in 2017, 875 airbags were stolen. In 2016, there were 199 such cases, and in 2013, a total of 38. In New York, from the beginning of 2017, 409 airbegs were stolen. In Florida, overnight criminals opened up 14 cars parked in the hotel’s parking lot. In all cases, criminals are interested in Honda models of 2013 and younger: Civic, Accord, CR-V and Pilot.

It is assumed that the pillows are of interest because of their high cost. So, the price of airbeg can go up to $ 1,000. Replacing after theft or accident will cost 2000-2500 thousand dollars. Stolen airbags are usually used by unscrupulous service centers, which sell them for the full price, purchasing for 200-300 dollars.

Represent Honda said that the company does not keep statistics on thefts of airbags and does not yet understand why airbegs are stolen mainly from its cars. One of the assumptions – the criminals choose the most popular models.
