Which item is most often stolen from vehicles in Scottsdale?
Well, if you said stereo – you used to be right. But airbags have now surpassed stereos as the biggest target for theft in Scottsdale – approximately 50,000 a year are stolen across the country. New airbags cost about $1,000, but go for $50 to $200 on the black market in Scottsdale.
Stolen airbags are making their way back into cars that have been in an accident. Of course, the danger to the consumer of having a stolen airbag installed is that you can never be sure what may have previously affected them and if they will work right when you need them.
