At Shainfeld Law, P.C., our Los Angeles, California lemon law attorney keeps his finger on the pulse of all things that impact vehicle safety.

That includes the tens of millions of vehicles with Takata air bags that are under recall. The latest recall involves Takata air bags built with non-azide driver inflators (NADI), and are separate from the much larger and ongoing Takata air bag inflator safety recalls.

The newest recall safety concerns include the affected vehicle’s long-term exposure to high heat and humidity, which are both common in California summers, which can cause these air bags to explode when deployed.

These explosions have already caused injuries and deaths throughout the U.S.

How Do I Know If My California Vehicle is Part of the Takata Air Bag Recall?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is the agency within the U.S. Department of Transportation tasked with vehicle safety on our public roads, including oversight of automakers’ and suppliers’ compliance with safety standards and with safety recall requirements for both defects and non-compliances.

Approximately 67 million Takata air bags have been recalled because these air bags can explode when deployed, causing serious injury or even death. NHTSA has ordered the automakers to accelerate their repair programs to fix all affected vehicles as quickly as possible, as more vehicles are being added to the DO NOT DRIVE list.

NHTSA urges vehicle owners to take a few simple steps to protect themselves and others from this very serious threat to safety by:

  • Checking for Recalls using your vehicle identification number (VIN).
  • Getting the Fix by calling your local dealer; it will be repaired for free.
  • Signing Up for Recall Alerts about any future recall affecting your vehicle.
