- New Tests Lead to Urgent Warning About Takata Airbags
July 5, 2016
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration conducted a new round of tests and found that Takata airbags are much more dangerous than previously thought. The NHTSA issued an urgent warning to owners of Honda and Acura vehicles model-year 2001-2003 warning them stop driving their cars and get the defective airbags replaced immediately.
The NHTSA found that Takata airbags can rupture in a car accident, spraying drivers and passengers with metal shrapnel and potentially causing injury or death. These airbags have been blamed for 11 deaths and hundreds of injuries.
Some of these airbags have almost a 50 percent chance of rupturing in an accident, according to U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx.
Nearly two-dozen carmakers have put Takata airbags in their cars. If you or a loved one drives one of these cars, you need to immediately stop and take it to the dealer to get the airbag replaced:
- 2003 Honda Pilot
- 2001-2002 Honda Civic
- 2002-2003 Acura TL
- 2003 Acura CL
- 2002 Honda CR-V
- 2002 Honda Odyssey
- 2001-2002 Honda Accord
Nearly 70 million Takata air bags could be under recall in the U.S. by 2019, making this the largest automotive recall in U.S. history.
Unfortunately, replacements for Takata airbags are in short supply. Some drivers are getting recall notices telling them they will have to wait weeks or months before the airbags can be fixed.

A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
