The automotive parts company Takata has made a national recall of a type of frontal air bag found in vehicles manufactured by BMW, Chrysler, Daimler Trucks, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru and Toyota.
The defect is in the propellant which can degrade over time in the inflating mechanism, resulting in ruptures that are suspected to be the cause of six deaths world wide.
Approximately 34 million vehicles will be recalled due to the defective Takata inflating devices. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is waiting for automakers to supply a complete list of the compromised vehicles.
To determine if your vehicle has been affected, use the NHTSA's VIN search tool. The list of affected vehicles will be updated, so the NHTSA recommends multiple checks.
If your vehicle is on the list, follow up with your manufacturer to get the necessary parts replaced when possible.
