My 1998 Elantra was in an accident where both airbags deployed. I am trying to decide whether or not is is worth repairing the car or not. I cannot find anything on the replacement costs for the airbags.
I found this on CarDirect.com Is states: If you've been in an accident, and the airbags themselves have become deployed, you'll have to set them back up in order to be able to drive again. Reinstalling the same airbag is generally cheaper than purchasing new airbags outright, but you should still plan on a budget of about $1000 per airbag to be reattached and fitted in order to be safe. Another consideration to keep in mind is that you can purchase a new steering wheel system, which includes an airbag, provided that it hasn't previously been deactivated. These systems are oftentimes actually cheaper than the procedure of having an airbag reinstalled anyway, and may be several hundred dollars less. Another important point to be mindful of is that, if you've been in an accident that was serious enough to cause multiple airbags to deploy, it may not be worth your investment to replace them in a damaged or totaled vehicle. For more information and advice, consult with a professional mechanic or air bag service person.
