Q: Does my car have airbags?

asked by on

I am not sure wether my car has airbags or not. There is nothing on my steering wheel telling me it does?

Air bags were not mandatory in vehicles until 1998 in the United States. You would see an air bag light come on the dash and then go out when you first turn on the key if you were equipped with them.
