Airbag recalls continue: 34 million vehicles affected

Airbag recalls continue: 34 million vehicles affected

(January 1, 2018) — Approximately 34 million vehicles are currently under recall for approximately 46 million defective Takata air bags that can explode when the air bag deploys, causing serious injury or even death. Additional air bags are scheduled to be recalled by December 2019, bringing the total number of affected air bags to around 65-70 million. Takata supplied these defective air bags to many vehicle manufacturers for years, creating one of the largest and most complex recalls in U.S. history. NHTSA and vehicle manufacturers urge the public to get their vehicles fixed as soon as possible; the recall repair is FREE.

If your car or RV is included in the recall, contact your dealer as soon as possible to get the recall repair. There is no cost.

If a dealer refuses to repair your vehicle as described in the recall letter, you should notify the manufacturer immediately. You can also file a complaint with NHTSA. Provide as many details as possible, including the name of the dealership and any personnel involved.

Some vehicle manufacturers have advised vehicle owners to not allow anyone to sit in the front passenger seat until a repair is completed and, if that is the case for your vehicle, you should follow those instructions. If you feel uncomfortable continuing to drive your vehicle before it is repaired, you should contact your dealer to see if they will provide a loaner until the repair is completed. Dealers and manufacturers are not required to provide you a loaner car, but it’s a good idea to ask. Vehicles equipped with air bags, including air bags that are under recall, save lives and reduce injuries. The vast majority of Takata air bags will perform as expected.
