How Many Cars Still Have Defective Takata Airbags?

The number of cars that are affected by the Takata Airbag Recall should be of concern to everyone on the roads. The defective airbags have been linked to at least six deaths and hundreds of injuries from shrapnel caused by ruptured inflators. Hundreds of vehicle models were manufactured with Takata airbags, and subsequently, millions of vehicles have been recalled.

Conflicting Estimates

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has made estimates as high as 34 million for vehicles affected by the Takata recall. That makes this the largest product recall in history, but it is also shaping up to be one of the most complex. Brands affected include:

  • Toyota
  • Honda
  • Nissan
  • Subaru
  • GM
  • BMW
  • Chrysler

A complete list of affected vehicles is not yet available, but new reports highlight the confusion surrounding the situation. Independent analysis done by Reuters places estimates closer to 16.2 million vehicles, leaving plenty of room for uncertainty.

While no one knows how many cars are still on the roads with these defective Takata airbags, the risks should not be underestimated. If you or a loved one has been injured due to any defective product, you need the help of an experienced defective product lawyer.
