What Should I Do If My Car Is Part of the Takata Airbag Recall?

January 13, 2018
Colson Hicks Eidson

Since the Takata airbag recall was first announced, it has been repeatedly expanded as more and more vehicles are revealed to contain the dangerous airbags. With the list of vehicles involved in the recall continuously expanding, many vehicle owners may be unaware that their car or truck has been included in the Takata airbag recall.

How Can Vehicle Owners Find Out If Their Car or Truck Is Part of the Takata Airbag Recall?

When vehicles are recalled, the automakers involved are supposed to alert owners of the models included in the recall. This can include sending vehicle owners notification letters, contacting them through email or calling them on the phone. In some extreme cases, automakers have even shown up at car owner’s homes to alert them and repair the issue.

Vehicle owners can also enter their car or truck’s Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) into an online tool on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s website (www.safecar.gov) to find out if their vehicle has any outstanding recalls.

Next Steps If Your Car Is Recalled Because of a Defective Takata Airbag

If you find out that your car or truck is part of the Takata airbag recall, you should contact a dealership immediately and set up a repair. There should be no charge to have the defective Takata airbags in your vehicle replaced.
