Takata2WASHINGTON, D.C. – Millions of vehicles are being recalled due to the Takata airbags installed in them, which are blamed on deaths due to explosions caused by the devices.

Today, regulators announced nearly 5 million more vehicles containing Takata  air bags that could be defective. It has been reported that up to ten deaths are now linked to the potentially defective airbags.

Takata’s expansion of their previous recalls has increased the number of vehicles affected, and currently include approximately 19 million vehicles in the United States. On June 17, 2015, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) verified that Vehicle Identification Numbers for vehicles made by the 12 automakers involved were available, and that owners could now search on NHTSA’s and manufacturers’ VIN look-up tools to determine if their vehicles are affected. NHTSA maintains an updated list of all makes and models affected by the 44 Takata recalls to-date.

On November 3, NHTSA issued an order to Takata imposing the largest civil penalty in NHTSA’s history on the air bag manufacturer for its violations of the Motor Vehicle Safety Act, among other things. Also on November 3, NHTSA issued an order to Takata and the affected vehicle manufacturers to accelerate recall repairs. NHTSA is coordinating with Takata and automakers to uphold its commitment to ensure that motorists receive information as soon as it is available. NHTSA will continue to provide real-time updates for all news and information related with this recall.

NHTSA has organized and prioritized the replacement of the defective air bag inflators to ensure that defective inflators are replaced with safe ones as quickly as possible, addressing the highest risks first. View the priority groups here.

NHTSA has released the full list of vehicles (by model year, make and model) affected by the Takata air bag recalls. Consumers can also use NHTSA’s VIN look-up tool to see if their Vehicle Identification Number matches one of the approximately 19 million vehicles from 12 auto manufacturers involved in the recall.
