Did you know that airbags weren't mandatory safety equipment in passenger vehicles until 1997? Now, you'll find them in well over 100 million cars and trucks on the road.

With gas engines, you can often power through a fuel issue for quite some time - they’re irritating, but not often permanently damaging.
