If the dealer knew or reasonably should have known that the airbag was missing he should be liable for a replacement because he sold a car with a hidden defect and defrauded you.

An essential part of a personal injury claim or lawsuit is "damages", meaning injuries suffered. Other than horror at what COULD have been, it doesn't seem like you have any injuries. Perhaps a breach of contract if the airbags were listed as part of what you bought. But, this does not appear like anything more than a small claims matter at best. Please consult local attorney for more information.
