GM No Longer Allowing Fleets to Opt-Out of Airbags

September 09, 2009

General Motors Co. said Sept. 4 it will not allow fleet purchasers to skip buying side airbags on 2010 models, Detroit News reported.

The automaker previously allowed fleet buyers to save $145 per vehicle by opting out of buying side airbags on tens of thousands of 2006-09 models that were typically billed as having "standard side airbags."

Brian Latouf, director of GM's Global Structure & Safety Integration Center, said the company wouldn't allow the airbags to be deleted from the list of features available when they are bought by fleet buyers, Detroit News reported.
