Officials are issuing a warning to drivers: If you've been in a crash in the last three years, you may have a faulty air bag.
Tens of thousands of car owners may be driving around with counterfeit air bags. Tests show these air bags don't inflate or fail to inflate properly.
It's unclear whether police can identify one of these counterfeit bags from a genuine one. Counterfeit bags are typically made to look like air bags made by automakers, when in fact they're not.
In most cases, these bags even include the manufacturers logo on it. Government investigators believe most of them are coming from China. The bags are marketed to auto body shops as the real deal.
On Wednesday, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has released a list of dozens of vehicle makes and models that may have these counterfeit bags installed. You can see those below.
