NHTSA calls for national recall of defective Takata driver-side air bags

The decison to call for a national recall of vehicles with certain Takata-made driver’s side frontal air bags is based on the agency's evaluation of a recent driver’s side air bag failure in a vehicle outside the current regional recall area, and its relationship to five previous driver’s side air bag ruptures. Unless Takata and the involved manufacturers quickly agree to this recall, NHTSA will use its full statutory powers to ensure vehicles that use the same or similar air bag inflator are recalled.
