Defective Takata Airbags Lead to Another Death
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is a government agency that works to keep Americans safe on our roads. More than a year ago, the NHTSA first warned consumers that their vehicles may contain defective Takata airbags that could explode upon inflation, seriously injuring passengers. It was estimated that more than 70 million vehicles may have had defective Takata airbags, 300,000 of which have yet to be repaired and/or accounted for.
Recently, the NHTSA confirmed the eleventh death linked to one of these defective airbags, reissuing their warning that any consumer with a vehicle on the following list should contact their dealership immediately for a no-cost repair and replacement.
- 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
