Largest Consumer Product Recall Ever: Takata Airbags

Quote :
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is requesting airbag manufacturer Takata Corp. recall nearly 34 million front airbag inflators that possibly have degraded over time since installation. According to the most recent story at Cars.com, this is a change in direction for NHTSA. The safety agency originally didn't see the need to expand the previous recall that covered 17 million vehicles and inflators. This new expansion will include additional passenger-side inflators, as well as a wider range of vehicle models.

Relatively few pickup trucks are affected by the action, which covers 2000s-era vehicles from brands built in the U.S., Europe and Japan. Depending on how the manufacturer is handling the recalls, fix times can vary greatly.

In the first wave of airbag-related recalls that were announced in October 2014, 11 pickups were identified. In this most recent expansion of the Takata recall, several of those same models have had the model years widened.

Models include:

2005-08 Dodge Dakota

2003-08 Dodge Ram 1500

2005-08 Dodge Ram 2500

2006-08 Dodge Ram 3500

2006-08 Dodge Ram 4500

2008 Dodge Ram 5500

2004-05 Ford Ranger

2006 Honda Ridgeline

2004-05 Mazda B Series (Ranger twin)

2005-08 Mitsubishi Raider (Dakota twin)

2003-05 Toyota Tundra

NHTSA will release more details later and could include more models and production years. To find out more, visit NHTSA's new Recalls Spotlight page.
