The Takata Airbag Recall is Taking Longer Than Expected

US Government officials are deeply concerned that the public is not taking the Takata airbag recall seriously enough and putting themselves and others in grave danger every time they get in their vehicle

Thursday, May 17, 2018 - There is an ongoing Takata airbag recall affecting tens of millions of motor vehicles in the United States. Takata airbag can explode due to changes in the environment from heat and humidity. These explosions have sent razor-sharp scraps of metal from the fractured ammonium-nitrate airbag deployment canister throughout the passenger cabin of vehicles at a speed of 1/20th of a second causing catastrophic injuries and instant death. US government officials are issuing an urgent warning for all motorists to check to see if their vehicle or vehicles are in danger and what to do if they are. Takata airbags pose an ongoing serious threat to public safety.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is doing what it can to make sure the remaining 7 million vehicles that have not complied with the Takata airbag recall do so immediately.

The NHTSA issued a letter to automakers immediately recontact vehicle owners on the "do not drive" list. Agency spokespersons said they were "deeply concerned " at the low percentage of compliance with the recall, the largest motor vehicle recall in US history. NHTSA Deputy Administrator Heidi King stressed the dangers of the Takata airbags and the need for immediate compliance with the recall, "for their own safety and the protection of their loved ones." Vehicles on the do not drive list are the ones most at risk of suffering a catastrophic Takata airbag explosion, and include the MY 2006 Ford Rangers and Mazda B-Series trucks, according to the NHTSA.

The agency is urging the public to call their local dealers and schedule a free repair and a free loaner vehicle if needed. Auto dealers will tow affected vehicles from an owner's home free of charge as well. To date, only a little more than half of the vehicles affected by the recall have had the faulty and deadly airbags replaced. The recall affects most major automaker vehicles from 2002 -2015.

The NHTSA is calling on the media and public safety websites to help in getting the message out in major markets from New York to Los Angeles.

The NHTSA is urging all drivers of all vehicles to go to their website, and enter the Vehicle Identification Number from the auto's registration into the search field to ascertain whether or not your vehicle is on the urgent recall list. Drivers of affected vehicles can ask questions at

People who have been injured and the loved ones of those who have been killed by a defective Takata airbag have not hesitated to hire a Takata airbag lawyer and file a claim against the company for monetary damages and the pain and suffering they have endured. The types of injuries reported by exploding Takata airbags include losing an eye, blindness, broken nose and facial fractures, fractured skulls, broken teeth, whiplash, concussions and traumatic brain injuries.
