1.2 Million Takata Airbag Recall
Published: May 28, 2015
1.2 Million Takata Airbag Recall, The federal government says an expanded recall of faulty Takata airbags covers about 1.2 million vehicles in Canada.
Transport Canada says the recall affects models from Honda, BMW, Ford and Chrysler from the years 2001 to 2014.
The list of affected vehicles posted online by Transport Canada includes the Honda Civic, Accord and CR-V, Chrysler products including the Dodge Ram and the Chrysler 300, BMW sedans and the X5, and Ford’s Ranger and Mustang.
The majority of the affected models are from the 2001 to 2011 model years, although more recent Ford Mustang models are also affected.
The Takata airbag recall began in 2008 over concerns that airbag inflators can explode with too much force, spewing metal shrapnel into drivers or passengers when deployed.
American regulators say six people have been killed and more than 100 injured due to the problem, though Transport Canada says it has no reports of any deaths or injuries in Canada from consumers or auto manufacturers.
Last week, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Takata agreed to declare 33.8 million airbags in the U.S. defective, triggering the largest auto recall in history.
The full list of the 1,242,111 vehicles included in the expanded recall can be found on Ottawa’s HealthyCanadians.ca website, while a list of affected models in older recalls for the same issue can be found on Transport Canada’s website.
Affected vehicles include Honda’s Civic, Accord, Odyssey, CR-V, Pilot, Element, and Ridgeline models; Acura’s TL, CL, MDX, and 1.7EL models; Chrysler’s Aspen and 300 models; Dodge’s Charger, Magnum, Ram, Dakota, and Durango models; Ford’s Ranger and Mustang models; as well as BMW’s X5 and 3-series and 5-series models.
