300,000 Vehicles May Have Lethal Defective Takata Airbags

Nov 2, 2016 | Defective Product

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), defective Takata airbags have claimed yet another life. A 50-year-old woman suffered fatal injuries when the airbag in her vehicle ruptured upon inflation. She becomes the 11th victim linked to defective airbags in recent years, and yet many consumers are still driving at-risk vehicles. Defective Takata airbags have been known to rupture, sending razor-sharp shrapnel throughout the car, potentially injuring the driver and passengers. The NHTSA estimates that more than 70 million vehicles may have contained defective Takata airbags, and currently more than 300,000 have yet to be repaired or otherwise accounted for. If you own a vehicle on the following list, contact your dealership immediately for a no-cost repair:
  • 2001-2002 Honda Civic
  • 2001-2002 Honda Accord
  • 2002-2003 Acura 3.2TL
  • 2002 Honda CR-V
  • 2002 Honda Odyssey
  • 2003 Acura 3.2CL
  • 2003 Honda Pilot
Takata airbags are just one of thousands of defective products that put Indiana consumers at risk.
