By now you’ve likely heard of the massive recall of defective airbag inflaters manufactured by the Japanese company “Takata”. The recall involves many automakers from Japan, Europe and the United States, including, but not limited to: BMW, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Mazda, Nissan and Toyota. Reports indicate that the inflators can explode under certain conditions, sending shrapnel flying in the passenger cabin of the car. A hazard like this is nothing to mess around with!
This recall is not limited to new vehicles, but actually covers vehicles dating to the early 2000’s. How can you find out if your car is part of the recall? The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued a statement which you can use to find the answer which can be accessed here.
As this data is reportedly based on reports made by the manufacturers to date, it would also be advisable for anyone with a car manufactured by BMW, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Mazda, Nissan and Toyota to contact a dealer to verify whether their car is part of the recall.
