I don't understand why don't people crawl under there and pop 'em back out. That's what I did. Maybe the Miata was more accessible?

I saw a Camry parked exactly like that last Sunday, too. And now I have a nasty eyeball sprain...

Toyota has to replace something like 5.7 million Takata airbag inflators, right?

Why doesn't someone invent a corner inflator to use those "dangerous" inflators??


Just a thought
