NHTSA Takata Airbag Recall Spotlight
July 1, 2015
Updated information on Takata National Air Bag Recalls is continuously becoming available to consumers.
Takata’s expansion of their previous recalls has nearly doubled the potential number of vehicles affected to more than 32 million. On June 17, 2015, NHTSA verified that Vehicle Identification Numbers for vehicles made by the 11 automakers involved were available, and that owners could now search on NHTSA’s and manufacturers’ VIN look-up tools to determine if their vehicles are affected. On June 22, 2015, NHTSA released a complete list of all makes and models affected by the 44 Takata recalls to-date. NHTSA is coordinating with Takata and automakers to uphold its commitment to ensure that motorists receive information as soon as it is available. NHTSA will continue to provide real-time updates for all news and information related with this recall.
As this recall progresses, NHTSA will organize and prioritize the replacement of the defective air bag inflators to ensure that defective inflators are replaced with safe ones as quickly as possible, addressing the highest risks first.
