How do you find out if your car is included in the Takata airbag recall?
A June 2016 report states that four automakers — Toyota, Fiat Chrysler, Volkwagen and Mitsubishi — are continuing to sell these defective airbags that must be recalled by 2018. Sadly, these manufacturers are not required to tell buyers about new model cars being equipped with the defective airbags.
The NHTSA currently has two resources to help you find out if your vehicle is one that has been affected by the air bag recall. You can go to this link with their site, input the VIN number of your vehicle, and find out the status.
If you prefer, you may call the following phone number:
The NHSTA Safety Hotline: 1-888-327-4236
Due to the advocacy of the legal community and the persistence of the media, both the automakers and Takata Corporation as well as the NHSTA are being compelled to take responsive action. While you may see advertisements from out-of-area law firms about this issue, you can be assured that our firm is highly qualified and experienced in this type of legal work.
