More Than 652,000 Vehicles Involved In Takata Air Bag Recall
More than 652,000 vehicles are being recalled by 13 automakers in the United States for the latest round of dangerous Takata airbag inflator recalls.
According to ABC 6, Audi, Nissan, Jaguar-Land Rover, Subaru, Daimler Vans, Tesla, Mitsubishi, BMW, Ferrari, Mercedes, Mazda, McLaren and Karma posted on Thursday about the recall on the front passenger airbag inflator.
With too much force, the Takata inflators can explode, and can blow apart a metal canister which sends shrapnel into the passenger compartment. Due to the problem, 16 people have died worldwide.
"The recall is among the latest round covering 5.7 million vehicles involving 19 automakers in the U.S. In total, it's the largest auto recall in U.S. history, affecting 69 million inflators and 42 million vehicles."
To see if their models are involved, owners can go to the National Highway Traffic Administration website.
