Largest Airbag Recall in US History

Airbags are designed to keep us safe not put us in harm! Recently however, there have been many reported injuries due to airbag explosions and even in some cases deaths. You probably have seen the seemingly non-stop recalls in the news recently for Takata airbags. Takata has announced airbag recalls for certain models ranging from 19 different automakers, countless models and millions of vehicles across the US! The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is calling it the “largest and most complex recall in US history”, notably; Honda, Toyota, Chevrolet, Ford and Chrysler are among the manufacturers with models being recalled. Recently, a 12th fatality was confirmed as a result of Takata’s exploding airbags, adding to the list of over 180 non-fatal injuries. These kinds of accidents serve as a tragic and sharp reminder to keep up with industry recalls and defects to ensure that your vehicle isn’t affected in a dangerous way.

Although this recall has been going on since 2015, it has tripled in size in the past year to 42 million vehicles!  NHTSA has determined the root cause of the problem; airbags that use ammonium nitrate-based propellant without a chemical drying agent. These propellants can improperly inflate airbags and even send shrapnel into the car’s occupants. Many people delay submitting their vehicles for the recalls because of the time and inconvenience associated with the process but these scary defects should remind everyone that recalls are serious and require your immediate attention.
