Takata Corporation was a Japanese automotive parts company. In 2013, a series of deaths and injuries associated with defective Takata airbag inflators resulted in a massive recall which affected over 3.6 million cars that were equipped with the faulty airbags.

This safety defect could kill or seriously injure either yourself or your passengers.

Drivers are strongly urged to check whether their vehicle has been recalled to replace the faulty Takata airbags. These recalls affect a large number of car makes and models and a small number of motorcycles.

What to do next?

If your vehicle is under active recall, speak to your local dealership or contact the manufacturer as soon as possible and make an appointment to get the defective airbag replaced. Replacements are conducted free of charge.


Do not disconnect your airbags

Disconnecting the airbag is not recommended by road safety authorities. If you are involved in a car accident, it is far more likely that your Takata airbag will perform properly and protect you than it will misdeploy and cause harm.


Future recalls

There are a large number of vehicles that will be recalled sometime in the future to have their airbags replace. See: List of Future Takata airbag recalls
