Massive Airbag Recall: What You Need to Know

E-mail Print PDF
 

Unless you’ve haven’t left your garage in the past couple of weeks, or you’ve been living under a rock, by now you’ve probably heard that there’s trouble in paradise.
 
Yep, you guessed it. The air bags that were put in your car to keep you safe during unfortunate instances such as crashes, or people tapping really hard on your bumper with a hammer (we don’t recommend trying this at home...) may not be as safe, in some instances, as they were meant to be.
 
So far, a little over 12 million vehicles around the world that were outfitted with air bags made by Japanese parts supplier Takata Corp. are being recalled. And if that isn’t bad enough, safety experts are saying that as many as 25 million vehicles may be equipped with the faulty air bags in the U.S. alone.
 
The faulty air bags are being blamed for at least three deaths and more than 100 injuries. Initially, regulators were recalling the air bags only in areas of the country with “high humidity,” but many lawmakers are now calling for an immediate nationwide recall on a much larger scale.
