Your airbag is an essential safety tool for you and your family. It is supposed to inflate within a fraction of a second when you are in an accident to protect you from injuries. For 69 million car owners, however, that is not the case as their airbags are subject to a massive recall. Finding out your car may be unsafe be very frightening. You need to take action to protect yourself and your loved ones.
Japanese airbag manufacturer Takata recently added 3.3 million faulty airbag inflators to its recall list, bringing the grand total to 69 million vehicles recalled. An airbag's usefulness stems from the speed that it inflates, which is generated by a chemical reaction that fills the bag with air via a small explosion. Unfortunately, improperly designed airbag inflators can fracture, putting drivers and passengers at substantial risk. This is the largest series of automotive related recalls in US history.
