Question Do we have side air bags?

I was wondering after i saw a TV show where they did collision test on the side of different cars.

Depends on the model, it was an option with both recaro seats and standard seats. Mine has them.

I was thinking,what a stupid way to die.

A 95 y-old granny who hit you on the side after ignoring the red ligth. Smashing your head through the door window.

This could have been prevented by the side air bag,in theory.

The TV show demonstrate that a lot of companies,even with side air bags,don't reach the safety standarts.

Subaru and Kia and Mini-cooper are excelent with safety.
Most of the others builders DO NOT pass the side impact test.

That would be cool to see a video on side impact on a focus.

It's not an option; all SVTs come with side airbags in the seats.

^^^Affirmative on both counts.
Look on the outside (towards the door) of both seat sides, right up at the top.
That little oval that says "airbag" is the one.

Then there must be some SVT seats out there that don't have the label then. I've seen 2 other SVTs, 1 Euro and one standard, and both did not have the Airbag Ovel on the side.

It's actually the cloth cover for the airbag that has that text on it.
Lemme find a pic...
Here ya go...check the 2nd picture in this thread:
http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...hreadid=101144
See that lighter colored oval, just below the seat back/tilt release?
That's the one.

And, yes, all SVTFs should have the side airbags.
It was "standard" equipment, not "optional".
