You can plug the VIN numbers in here https://vinrcl.safercar.gov/vin/
Call them and ask if the cars have had their airbags replaced. See what they answer.

That brings a couple of questions to mind. Are they any less dangerous if they are used? And if they can sell them used why is the OP having difficulty finding someone who will allow them to trade. Then remains the question I had about the camaro I test drove the day I bought my Mustang. It had an open recall on the ignition switch and they were going to let me take possession of it and bring it in when they got the parts to fulfill the recall. That's why I think if there is a law against selling cars with open recalls it must be a state law rather than federal.

There is probably no actual law, just fear of being held liable. Probably just too much risk involved and it is easier to say "we can't" rather than "we don't want to". This way is a cop out of sorts, however putting myself in their shoes from a business owner standpoint I would probably do the same thing. Knowing that and putting it in that scope may irritate me just as much as the actual issue.

I'm not holding the dealers liable at this point, it's clearly Ford and Takata. Again where is Deysha in on weighing in on this? ****crickets****. Probably just doing what she is told from leadership, ignore the issue as eventually it should resolve itself a year or so from now.

I think you are 100% correct. I just wonder if they are telling people about the airbag issue. I wonder if they are obligated to and then have them sign something stating they are aware of it.
