Is your car on the recall list?
About The Takata Air Bag Recall
This recall is not due to a minor issue. Over time, the Takata air bags have been found to destabilize and essentially become bombs, launching shrapnel at the drivers they were meant to protect. They have killed 13 people and left more than 100 with serious injuries.
To make matters worse, it appears that Takata may have known about the dangers of these air bags for years. The combined efforts of Senate investigators and personal injury lawyers have brought to light many warning signs that were ignored by the manufacturer of these air bags. The article reveals a long history of issues within Takata.
Unfortunately, it appears that it will take up to three years for replacement air bags to be manufactured, potentially leaving many drivers in a difficult and dangerous position.
