What's Wrong With Your Airbag?
Consumers should also be aware of two critically important details about this recall:
The Danger of “Alpha” Airbags: Certain 2001-2003 Honda and Acura vehicles, 2006 Ford Ranger, and Mazda B-Series trucks are at a far higher risk for an airbag explosion that could injure or kill vehicle occupants. These are referred to as “Alpha” airbags. These vehicles can and should be repaired immediately. Do not drive these vehicles with Takata airbags unless you are going straight to a dealer to have them repaired immediately.
Additional Vehicles Will Be Recalled: Additional airbags are scheduled to be recalled by December 2019, bringing the total number of affected airbags to around 65-70 million. These vehicles do not currently appear affected by this recall using a VIN search. Sign up for Recall Alerts and make sure the address on your registration is current to be sure you’re notified of this or any other future recall.
