Takata Airbag Recall List Expanded

Government updates the Takata airbag recall list to include more vehicles and automakers.

Posted in Recalls

— The Takata airbag recall list has been updated and expanded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to include two additional automakers and more vehicles.

For months it was believed defective Takata airbag inflators could be found in vehicles from 10 automakers, but that number has now grown to 12. The government estimates 19 million vehicles are affected, many of those vehicles with more than one defective Takata airbag inflator.

The inflators are at the heart of the exploding airbags that have maimed and killed vehicle occupants. Although research continues, most experts believe age, heat and humidity are at the source of the problem that can cause the inflators to rupture from a simple fender-bender. The inflators have an explosive chemical called ammonium nitrate, one of the cheaper chemicals to use, but a chemical that becomes unstable if affected by moisture.

NHTSA also announced it will hold a public information meeting on Thursday, October 22, 2015, regarding Takata airbag recalls. The meeting will cover "possible actions that could aid in prioritizing, organizing, and phasing the multiple recalls to remedy defective Takata airbag inflators."

NHTSA says the meeting will help the public to understand the risks associated with the airbags and what every automaker is doing to fix the problems.
