Exactly^

Airbags aren't bad to replace, just have to make sure buckles and belts are replaced as well if they went. As well as the SRS modules etc.

So to be clear it didnít total because of the airbags deploying. It totalled because the cost to replace the airbags and repair the car exceeded their threshold. So unless you want to build a track car without airbags you will be upside down and have a salvaged title to boot. Used airbags are NOT an option

Yes, I know exactly why they total the car. And like Instame said, people still rebuild S title cars with ďusedĒ airbags all the time. Until we have consistency from state to state, people can fix and flip S title cars below the radar. Itís a shady world out there and not everyone lives by the rules you follow with your legitimate business.
