Over 20 vehicle manufacturers have recently issued recalls for the millions of vehicles that contain defective airbags.
Numerous safety studies have shown that airbags manufactured by Takata, a Japanese auto part supplier, may deploy improperly in the event of a crash and shoot out metal fragments.
Although Takata first announced the defect in 2013, the company has been unable to determine which vehicle makes or models contain the defective airbags. As a result, the NHTSA and automakers that use Takata airbags have issued numerous recalls and safety notices.
For more information on the recall, or to see if your vehicle is affected, visit the government’s safe driving resource at http://www.safercar.gov/rs/takata/takatalist.html.
Airbags save lives, but seat belts are the number one protection in an accident! So buckle up friends!
