September 2003 marked the beginning of the legislated phase of advanced frontal air bag systems for vehicles sold in the United States. Although earlier models may have been equipped with some of the features, Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Occupant Crash Protection Standard (FMVSS 208) requires that 20% of MY2004 vehicles be equipped with these "smart" air bags. The percentage increases to 65% starting in September 2004 and then to 100% by September 2005 for MY2006 vehicles.
