Default Buying a car, air bags deployed

Hey guys.

I've been looking at a 2001 golf gti recently and want to buy it. Only thing is it's been in an accident and had it's airbags deployed. Can I buy, insure and drive this car with the airbags already deployed? I'm buying through a dealer and getting a BCAA inspection so I'd think they'd tell me after that inspection if I could or not... I live in Canada B.C. for reference.

it should be fine, as long as the car passes safety inspections, i mean if you cant drive a car after the air bags were deployed it would be a waste of money

Might want to ask whatever your equivalent to the Department of Motor Vehicles is, just to be sure.

How much will it cost you to have them professionally replaced?
