SOURCE: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will organize and prioritize the replacement of the defective air bag inflators that were used in nearly 34 million vehicles. NHTSA will also be coordinating with Takata and automakers that used the defective inflators in their vehicles, to ensure the American public receives information regarding these recalls as it becomes available.

At the insistence of the U.S. Department of Transportation, Takata has determined that a defect exists in some of its air bag inflators. Takata has agreed to a national recall of certain types of frontal driver and passenger side air bag inflators used in vehicles manufactured by BMW, Chrysler, Daimler Trucks, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru and Toyota. These inflators were made with a propellant that can degrade over time and has led to ruptures that have been blamed for six deaths worldwide. The action expands the number of vehicles to be recalled for defective Takata inflators to nearly 34 million.

NHTSA is waiting for the automakers to supply a complete list of affected vehicles. As this information becomes available, NHTSA will update this site to provide the American public with this information.

Once manufacturers identify which vehicles are affected, use NHTSA’s VIN search tool to confirm whether your individual vehicle is under recall, and search by VIN on a specific vehicle-maker's site. It’s important to check periodically because it’s possible your VIN might not be entered into a manufacturer’s system for several weeks after a recall is first announced. If your vehicle is affected, follow-up with the manufacturer to get interim guidance and get your vehicle fixed as soon as parts are available.
