At least airbag modules can be replaced on their own. A better analogy would be if the problem was with the transmission failing ahead of schedule but due to their age they're out of warranty. Fixing the transmission would cost more than the car is worth (I speak from experience), meaning you're dead-end ed because they have the money to influence the legislators.
