Following Takata’s announcement in 2013 that some of their airbags were defective, tens of millions of vehicle’s airbags have been recalled. These airbags have been found to be incredibly dangerous, with at least 11 known deaths and 184 injuries in the U.S.
These airbags are known to have faulty inflator and propellant devices that, even in minor fender benders, can defect and fire shrapnel into the car’s cabin.
Look through this list and check if your vehicle’s make and model have been affected. You can also check your VIN here as another precaution:
If your vehicle is affected, please contact your local dealer for an immediate replacement. Stay safe and raise awareness to your friends and family to check their vehicle as well.
