The Takata airbag recall is the largest and most complex safety recall in United States history. The most recent recall announcement came in January 2019 and includes vehicles from 19 different automakers spanning model years 2002 through 2015, with more than 64 million Takata airbags at issue so far and additional airbags scheduled to be recalled by December 2019. Industry experts expect it will take years for every defective frontal airbag on the driver’s side and passenger’s side to be replaced.
At the center of the problem is a serious manufacturing defect with the Takata airbag inflator. The materials that make up the composition of the airbag are hard and become shrapnel-like projectiles that can potentially explode when the airbag is deployed. These projectiles can result in serious injuries and even death to the driver or passengers inside the vehicle.
It is extremely important that ALL car owners be aware of the recall and know whether or not the recall applies to their own vehicle.
Accidents linked to defective airbags are still occurring and a number of older accidents are still being attributed to the deadly defect.
