The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is warning motorists and repair shops about counterfeit air bags.
Apparently, the counterfeit airbags have been used as replacement parts in vehicles that were involved in a crash. they are identical to the original ones in your car, but the NHTSA found they don't deploy, some even discharge shrapnel.
If you've purchased a replacement airbag within the last 3 years, check the website www.safercar.gov
No need to throw elbows in line at Toys R Us this year. The toy retailer is opening pop-up shops inside Macy's stores in at least 24 locations. So far, none in Ohio. But the company says they plan on expanding the concept in the future. Major retailers are pushing their layaway programs this holiday season.
If you decide to try out layaway, here are a few questions the Better Business Bureau says you need to ask:
- How much time do you have to pay off the item?
- When are payments due?
- What are the penalties if you miss a payment?
- What happens if you no longer want the item after making a few payments?
- What happens if the item goes on sale after layaway?
