Ugh, Takata – amirite?

The automakers are sick of it. I’m sick of it. I sure as heck know you’re sick of it too. But here we are – staring down another recall of 152,000 Nissan and Infiniti vehicles.

By now I’m guessing you’ve heard about the dangers of Takata airbags, but here’s a quick recap:

  1. Over time Takata airbag inflators are susceptible to moisture.
  2. When that moisture mixes with the airbag’s propellant, the inflators become unstable and can explode sending shrapnel throughout the cabin.
  3. The problem is responsible for 11 deaths in the USA alone.

Mazda has now recalled more than 1 million vehicles for this problem. Find out if yours is on the most recent list.
