Counterfeit parts has always been and will likely always be an issue within the automotive industry. Most of the counterfeit airbags were made in China. They all had one thing in common, namely that they are very cheap, which a repair shop would have an interest in procuring. Not only that, but even a mechanic might not be able to tell the difference. Many of the counterfeit bags have all the same logos and markings of OEM airbags, according to AutoGuide, making it nearly impossible to discern.
