I wonder how far back the airbag actually expands. Given that there is so much room on the cockpit on the passenger side, it doesn't seem likely it can reach far enough to actually impact the seat at its most remote positioning.

Has anyone ever seen an expanded bag in the Insight?

I don't recommend ignoring the warning, but if the seatbelt holds a small person against the seat, and the seat is all the way back, I can't see that the airbag could reach that far.

It is designed to stop the forward motion of a passenger hurtling towards the dash, not to expand and fill the entire cockpit cavity.

The only way to know is to find one expanded and examine how far back it goes into the cockpit.

Until someone can answer that, best to be safe and not sorry.

Anyone out there with a wrecked Insight?
