Mom is 80 and lives across the country. She drives a 2001 Lincoln Continental she purchased from Ford new. She is now being told that she cannot get a sticker because the car has “no airbags” and is being pushed to plunk down $1000+ in order to install airbags. She has been the only driver and the Ford dealership has done all the maintenance. She is also on social security-fixed income. Can someone tell me how a car can come off the assembly line and be sold without airbags? If it actually had no airbags, wouldn’t the entire dash console be in pieces? If it was truly sold to her back in 2001 with no airbags, is she responsible for forking over $1000 to install airbags? It all sounds fishy to me.
Wish I was there Daughter
