Is My Car Part Of The Big Airbag Recall?

two airbags deployed

You have probably heard about the huge airbag recall involving Takata airbags. These airbags were used in hundreds of thousands of vehicles for well over a decade. Unfortunately there is still some confusion from car owners about whether their vehicle is affected. Some manufactures have been speedy to send recall notices, while others seem to be dragging their feet. We’ve taken the list available here from the NHTSA and made it a bit more user friendly. Simply look for your vehicle’s make, model and year. Alternately, if you have your VIN you can go here and see if any recalls are open for your vehicle.

If you have one of the vehicles on this list it is important that you contact your local dealer immediately and ask if your vehicle is included in the recall. If it is part of the recall, you will need to schedule your recall repair. Once your repair is scheduled it is important to make time to have the repair done. We’ve had reports of dealers with stacks of replacement airbags that are assigned to customers who won’t bring their vehicle in for the free repair. There is no excuse for that. Replacement airbags are trickling in slowly, so don’t assume that your vehicle is not repairable.

  1. Thank you. Every one of our cars is subject to this recall. I hadn’t been notified of mine by VW, and my husband’s BMW is waiting for the shop to get the right equipment to do the recall, apparently.

  2. Went to my local VW dealer today and was told that there is no fix at this time as they are waiting for airbag production. Not even an offer to schedule on a waiting list and they are not offering loaners or alternate transport per orders from VW corporate.
    Called VW corporate and they confirmed what the dealer said.
    Not pleased with this situation. My wife and kids are in this car daily. Both the dealer and corporate told me “well, we haven’t had any issues yet..” but others using Takata airbags have.
