Most recently, Huma Hanif, 17, was killed after the Takata airbag inflator in her 2002 Honda Civic ruptured. The rupture resulted in metal fragments being ejected into the vehicle cabin, and a piece of the metal shrapnel struck Hanif in the neck. The teenager bled to death as a result.
Honda made a statement saying they reached out to Hanif as well as her family several times regarding the recall of her vehicle although the family said they never knew about it.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), approximately 8 million airbags have already been replaced.
The recall list below might expand to another 85 million vehicles. Check to see if your car is on the list. If it is, go to safercar.gov to plug your Vehicle ID Number, or VIN number, into the recall look-up tool it will then let you know whether your vehicle needs its airbag inflators replaced.
