Is Your Car Part of the Takata Airbag Recall?

2003 Honda Accord

CARS.COM  Which cars are included in the Takata airbag inflator recall? As of January 2018, the massive airbag inflator recall already covered some 50 million airbag inflators in 37.5 million cars in the U.S. after a series of expansions since the initial campaign. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration expects the still-expanding recall to affect 65 million to 70 million inflators in 42 million cars by 2020.

The Takata airbag recalls specifically involve the inflator inside the airbag. You may see terms like "airbag inflator" or just "airbag" in our reporting; unless specifically noted as otherwise, all such references refer to the inflator. The repair for your particular car may involve replacing the entire airbag assembly or just the inflator.

Automakers will determine the specific cars affected by Takata's recalls and notify owners with their own recall. As we did previously, we'll update this story as we receive more information. Here are the most recent Takata-recall news updates, followed by a complete, bulleted maker-by-maker list of the vehicles they have recalled and information on recalls that have already been issued:

Updated 1/19/2018: Under a planned expansion of regions and model years under recall, regulators order another 3.3 million inflator recalls.

Updated 8/15/2017: Mazda recalls more than 79,000 more affected vehicles for permanent inflator replacement on Takata airbags. The action adds 2012 models and additional earlier vehicles to a July recall of about 205,000 model-year 2007-11 CX-7 and CX-9 SUVS and 2009-11 Mazda6 sedans. The vehicles had been recalled earlier and were getting temporary replacements while Mazda developed the permanent fix.

Updated 7/25/2017: Mazda issues a new safety recall to put permanent replacement airbag inflators in about 205,000 affected vehicles recalled in May 2016 to get temporary repairs. Under the older recall, the vehicles were being given a stopgap fix with new inflators containing the same non-desiccated ammonium-nitrate propellant as the originals that might have degraded. The replacements under the new recall use a different propellant.

Updated 7/24/2017: Ford and Mazda resist a safety recall of the desiccated inflators, notifying NHTSA that they will petition for further study, saying data is insufficient to confirm that they pose a danger like that of the non-desiccated parts. The issue involves more than 2 million Ford, Lincoln and Mercury SUVs, sedans and pickup trucks, as well as about 6,000 Ranger-based Mazda pickups from the period when Ford controlled Mazda.

Updated 7/21/2017: Nissan follows the Takata action by recalling about 515,000 Versa sedans and hatchbacks with driver-side airbag inflators containing the desiccated ammonium-nitrate propellant Takata now says also may be risky.

Updated 7/21/2017: Nissan is the first automaker to announce specific safety recalls related to Takata's recent recall of 2.7 million older-generation airbag inflators with a particular desiccant, or drying agent, intended to protect the propellant from heat and humidity degradation. This group, using a desiccant now not used, previously were thought to be safe, but Takata testing determined they could be dangerous. The 2.7 million inflators were not covered by, and are in addition to, the current phased recall of all non-desiccated inflators.

Updated 7/11/2017: Takata adds another type of inflator, 2.7 million inflators with a desiccant, opening a new chapter in the recall.

Updated 5/19/17: BMW, Mazda, Subaru and Toyota agree to jointly provide a total of approximately $553 million to fund consumer outreach, customer reimbursements and rental car/loaner programs in an effort to compensate owners affected by the recall and improve recall remedy completion rates.

What's the list of vehicles under recall?

  • 2008-13 1 Series
  • 2000-13 3 Series
  • 2002-03 5 Series
  • 2011-15 X1
  • 2007-10 X3

Which cars are under recall? BMW confirmed on April 10, 2015, that a range of 3 Series models are under national safety recall, including 2000-05 sedans, 2000-06 coupes, 2000-06 convertibles, 2000-05 wagons, 2001-06 M3 coupes and 2001-06 M3 convertibles.

On May 28, 2015, BMW added the 2002-03 5 Series sedan (including the M5) and wagon plus the 2003-04 X5 SUV, but only models with the optional sport steering wheel are affected.

On Jan. 22, 2016, NHTSA said its latest expansion would include BMW, and the automaker responded Feb. 10 with a large batch of new recalls for driver-side airbag inflators: the 2008-13 1 Series coupe and convertible, 2006-11 3 Series sedan, 2006-12 3 Series wagon and 2007-13 3 Series coupe and convertible, plus a lot of SUVs: the 2013-15 X1, 2007-10 X3, 2007-13 X5 and 2008-14 X6.

On June 2, 2016, BMW added several model years for passenger-side airbags. They are the 2007-11 BMW X5 and 2008-11 X6.

BMW expanded its passenger-side recall in January 2017 to include certain variants of the 2001 5 Series sedan (including the M5) and wagon plus the 2001-02 X5; the automaker also added the 2012 X5 and X6. The automaker expanded the recall again in January 2018 to encompass the 2013 X5 and X6.

For major expansions from 2016 to 2018, note that many included models already under recall as automakers expand the scope or geographic region of recalls within a given model year, add different inflators or recall replacement inflators. BMW is recalling the cars based on how humid it is where you live, but NHTSA plans to expand the recall to eventually become national. If you see your car listed above, it'll likely become recalled at some point regardless of location.

Which airbag inflators in those cars are under recall? It depends on the particular car, but BMW has recalled inflators in driver-side airbags, passenger-side airbags or both for given vehicles. In some cases, the replacement airbags — those installed after a crash where the original airbag deployed — are Takata units even though the original ones weren’t. Check with your dealer for specifics on your car.

  • 2007-09 Dodge Sprinter
  • 2007-17 Freightliner Sprinter

Read on for more detailed information regarding the above list:

Which cars are under recall? Many core models from 2005-14. NHTSA said its Jan. 22, 2016, recall expansion would add Mercedes-Benz cars and vans — the first time recalls for Takata airbags directly involved the brand, owned by Germany’s Daimler AG. On Feb. 9, Daimler responded with more details on the recalls for Mercedes-Benz cars and Daimler vans sold under various brands.

Mercedes spokeswoman Donna Boland told Cars.com that the recalled cars would include "various" C-Class, E-Class, SLK-Class and SLS-Class cars and GL-Class, M-Class and R-Class SUVs, all from the 2005-14 model years. Daimler also recalled various Sprinter vans sold under the Dodge, Freightliner and Mercedes-Benz brands from the 2007-14 model years.

All the cars and trucks are being recalled for driver-side airbag inflators, Boland said. Separately, the Takata airbag inflator recall already involves some heavy-duty Daimler trucks.

On June 2, 2016, Daimler recalled various Sprinter vans for passenger-side airbags: 2009 Dodge Sprinter, 2009-11 Freightliner Sprinter and 2010-11 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. Mercedes-Benz also recalled the following cars because of defective passenger-side inflators. They are the 2008-11 C-Class, 2010-11 E-Class coupe and convertible, 2010-11 GLK-Class and 2011 SLS AMG. The cars being recalled are based on how humid it is where you live, but NHTSA plans to expand the recall to eventually become national. If you see your car listed above, it'll likely become recalled at some point regardless of location.

Daimler expanded the recall in January 2017 to include model-year 2012 versions of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan and coupe, E-Class coupe and convertible, GLK-Class, SLS AMG coupe and convertible, and Sprinter 2500 and 3500 commercial van (both under the Freightliner and Mercedes-Benz brands), all for passenger-side airbag inflators.

Another expansion in January 2018 added passenger-side airbag inflators in the 2013 model-year C-Class sedan and coupe, E-Class coupe and convertible, GLK-Class and SLS-Class, and Sprinter 2500 and 3500. Daimler expanded the regions for various other Mercedes-Benz models already under regional recall, as well.

For the major expansions from 2016 to 2018, note that many affected models already are under recall as automakers expand the scope or geographic region of recalls within a given model year, add different inflators or recall replacement inflators.

Which airbag inflators are under recall? Depending on the car, the driver-side or passenger-side airbag inflator.

Which cars are under recall? On May 27, 2016, regulators recalled two Ferrari models: 2010-11 458 Italia coupes built from March 5, 2010, to July 29, 2011, and 2009-11 Ferrari California convertibles built from Feb. 16, 2009, to July 8, 2011.

In January 2017, Ferrari added model-year 2012 versions of three cars: the California, 458 Italia (including the Spider convertible) and FF.

In January 2018, Ferrari added model-year 2013 versions of the California, 458 Italia (including the Spider convertible), FF and F12 Berlinetta.

Which airbag inflators in those cars are under recall? Passenger-side inflators for all cars up through the 2013 model year; later model years are still unknown.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles

What's the list of vehicles under recall?

  • 2005-15 Chrysler 300
  • 2007-09 Chrysler Aspen
  • 2007-08 Chrysler Crossfire
  • 2008-14 Dodge Challenger
  • 2006-15 Dodge Dakota
  • 2005-11 Dodge Dakota
  • 2004-09 Dodge Durango
  • 2005-08 Dodge Magnum
  • 2003-08 Dodge Ram 1500
  • 2003-09 Dodge Ram 2500
  • 2003-10 Dodge Ram 3500
  • 2007-16 Jeep Wrangler

Read on for more detailed information regarding the above list:

Which cars are under recall? FCA confirmed the current list includes "certain" 2003-08 Dodge Ram 1500, 2004-09 Ram 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks and 3500 chassis cabs; 2008-10 Ram 4500/5500 chassis cabs; 2004-08 Dodge Durango and 2007 Chrysler Aspen SUVs; 2005-10 Chrysler 300 sedans and 2006-10 Dodge Charger sedans; 2005-10 Dodge Magnum wagons; and 2004-11 Dodge Dakota pickups.

On May 27, 2015, FCA expanded its recall on Takata airbags to include a larger chunk of 2004-11 Chrysler and Dodge vehicles than you may have seen here earlier. The expansion involves driver-side airbag inflators, and it supersedes a smaller recall in December 2014. (Note that many cars on the above list are also under recall for passenger-side airbag inflators; those campaigns ostensibly remain unchanged.) Also on May 27, FCA expanded its passenger-side Takata airbag inflator recall for the 2003 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500; that partially supersedes an earlier passenger airbag inflator recall for various FCA vehicles.

Importantly, FCA says anyone who got repairs under the 2014 driver-side recall will need to have them done again, but only some owners who got repairs under the Ram’s passenger-side campaign may need new replacements.

On July 10, 2015, FCA added 2008-10 Dodge Challengers built from Sept. 19, 2007, to Oct. 29, 2010, to the list. FCA made another host of additions on May 27, 2016, all for passenger-side airbags. Many of them are for cars that are already under recall for driver-side airbags. A number of them are new, however, including the 2010 Ram 3500 chassis cab, 2008-09 Sterling 4500/5500 chassis cab, 2011-12 Chrysler 300, 2008-09 Chrysler Aspen, 2011-12 Dodge Charger, 2011-12 Dodge Challenger, 2009 Dodge Durango and 2007-12 Jeep Wrangler. Regulators initially restricted many of the May 27 recalls — particularly for later model years — to more-humid regions of the country. But NHTSA plans to expand the recall to eventually become national, so if you see your car on this list, it will likely be recalled at some point regardless of location.

In January 2018, FCA expanded the passenger-side airbag recall to include additional regions for many models listed above; it also added the 2013 Jeep Wrangler, Chrysler 300, and Dodge Challenger and Charger in certain regions for the first time.

Which airbag inflators in those cars are under recall? Both driver- and passenger-side airbag inflators, though it depends on the specific car.

Ford

What's the list of vehicles under recall?

  • 2007-10 Ford Edge
  • 2006-12 Ford Fusion
  • 2005-06 Ford GT
  • 2005-14 Ford Mustang
  • 2004-11 Ford Ranger
  • 2007-10 Lincoln MKX
  • 2006-12 Lincoln Zephyr/MKX
  • 2006-11 Mercury Milan

Read on for more detailed information regarding the above list:

Which cars are under recall? On May 28, 2015, Ford announced the 2005-14 Mustang sports car and 2005-06 GT exotic are both under recall for the driver-side airbag inflators, while the 2004 Ranger pickup truck built at Ford’s Edison Assembly Plant and 2004-06 Ranger built at Ford’s Twin Cities Assembly Plant are under recall for passenger-side airbag inflators. On Jan. 26, 2016, Ford added driver-side inflators to the 2004-06 Ranger recall.

"There’s no geographic boundaries but there are also no build date boundaries," Ford spokeswoman Kelli Felker told us. "This includes every one of those vehicles in those models regardless of where they're built in the world."

Ford made a host of additions on June 1, 2016, all for passenger-side airbags. They are the 2007-10 Ford Edge SUVs, 2006-11 Ford Fusion sedans, 2005-11 Ford Mustang sports cars, 2007-11 Ford Ranger pickup trucks, 2007-10 Lincoln MKX SUVs, 2006-11 Lincoln MKZ and Zephyr sedans, and 2006-11 Mercury Milan sedans. (Lincoln is Ford's luxury division, while Mercury is a former Ford brand.) The Mustang and Ranger already have been recalled for previous Takata inflators; the June 1 addition either adds passenger-side airbags or expands earlier Takata recalls. Ford will recall these cars in batches depending on humidity in your location, but NHTSA plans to expand the recall to eventually become national. If you see your car on this list, it will likely be recalled at some point regardless of location.

Ford added more cars in January 2017, including the 2012 Fusion, 2012 Lincoln MKZ and many cars already listed above, all for passenger-side inflators. In January 2018, Ford placed additional cars under passenger-airbag recall as directed by the latest phase of Takata's recall expansion, including one new model: the 2013 Mustang.

Note that many models covered in the 2016-18 expansions already are under recall as automakers expand the scope or geographic region of recalls within a given model year, add different inflators or recall replacement inflators.

Which airbag inflators in those cars are under recall? The Ranger, GT and Mustang may be under recall for the driver-side airbag, passenger-side airbag or both. Other cars are under recall for only the passenger-side airbag.

GM

What's the list of vehicles under recall?

  • 2007-14 Cadillac Escalade
  • 2007-14 Cadillac Escalade ESV
  • 2007-13 Chevrolet Avalanche
  • 2007-14 Chevrolet Silverado heavy-duty
  • 2007-13 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
  • 2007-14 Chevrolet Suburban
  • 2007-14 Chevrolet Tahoe
  • 2007-14 GMC Sierra heavy-duty
  • 2007-13 GMC Sierra 1500
  • 2007-14 GMC Yukon

  • 2003-10 Pontiac Vibe
  • 2005-06 Saab 9-2X
  • 2006-11 Saab 9-3
  • 2006-09 Saab 9-5
  • 2008-09 Saturn Astra

Read on for more detailed information regarding the above list:

Which cars are under recall? GM has recalled 2003-07 Pontiac Vibe and 2005 Saab 9-2X hatchbacks, both from defunct brands that are closely related to other cars (the Toyota Matrix and the Subaru Impreza, respectively). Former GM spokesman Alan Adler said GM dealers are servicing recall repairs for both models. The Vibe recall was originally confined to high-humidity areas, according to NHTSA, but GM expanded it along with Toyota's expansion of Matrix recalls in June. Although GM did not clarify whether the expansion constitutes a nationwide recall, its vehicle total for 2003-07 Vibe hatchbacks (around 342,000) strongly suggests that's the case.

The 9-2X, meanwhile, was expanded to a national recall on May 28. It applies to 2005 models built from Feb. 11, 2004, to March 17, 2005.

On May 28, 2015, GM placed several heavy-duty trucks under national recall for Takata airbags: the 2007-08 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD built from Nov. 28, 2006, to Aug. 29, 2008, and the 2007-08 GMC Sierra 2500HD and 3500HD built from Nov. 27, 2006, to Aug. 29, 2008.

On Oct. 18, 2015, GM added a couple hundred 2015 Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac XTS and Chevrolet Malibu sedans, plus 2015 GMC Terrain and Chevrolet Equinox SUVs and Chevrolet Camaro sports cars. The latest recall stems from faulty Takata seat-mounted side airbag inflators, however. It's the first instance in this crisis of a recall over side airbags, not frontal ones.

NHTSA's Jan. 22, 2016, recall expansion added the Saab 9-3 luxury car to the list for the 2003-11 model years, and the Saab 9-5 to the list for the 2010-11 model years. (GM owned Saab until 2010.) GM also issued a Takata airbag inflator recall for the Saturn Astra hatchback for the 2008-09 model years.

On May 27, 2016, regulators added the 2006 Saab 9-2X and 2009-10 Pontiac Vibe for certain regions. NHTSA plans to expand those areas to eventually become national, however, and subsequent expansions have done much of that.

On June 2, 2016, GM recalled the following pickup trucks and SUVs for passenger-side airbag inflators: 2007-11 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV and Escalade EXT; 2007-11 Chevrolet Avalanche; 2007-11 Chevrolet Silverado 1500; 2007-11 Chevrolet Suburban; 2007-11 Chevrolet Tahoe; 2007-11 GMC Sierra 1500; 2007-11 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL; 2009-11 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500; and 2009-11 GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500. The cars being recalled are based on how humid it is where you live, but NHTSA plans to expand the recall to eventually become national. If you see your car listed above, it'll likely become recalled at some point regardless of location.

Which airbag inflators in those cars are under recall? Both driver- and passenger-side airbag inflators, though it depends on the specific car. Some affected vehicles are also under recall for side-impact Takata inflators.

  • 2003 Acura 3.2CL
  • 2002-03 Acura 3.2TL

  • 2002-04 Honda Odyssey
  • 2003-15 Honda Pilot
  • 2006-14 Honda Ridgeline

Read on for more detailed information regarding the above list:

Which cars are under recall? Honda, which was responsible for about a third of all cars under Takata recall as of early 2018, says 2001-07 Accords, 2001-05 Civics, 2002-06 CR-V SUVs, 2003-11 Element SUVs, 2002-04 Odyssey minivans, 2003-08 Pilot SUVs and 2006 Ridgeline pickup trucks are under recall. The automaker's Acura division has 2003-06 MDX SUVs, 2002-03 TL sports sedans, 2003 CL coupes and 2005 RL sedans under recall.

Honda announced May 28, 2015, it would recall more 2001 and 2003-05 Civics as well as 2003-07 Accords for front-passenger airbag inflators, even as both cars were already under recall for driver-side airbag inflators. Honda's front-passenger airbag inflator recall has largely been limited to areas of high absolute humidity, like the Gulf Coast. The automaker has a national campaign for driver-side airbag inflators, which on May 28 it said it would upgrade from a voluntary "Safety Improvement Campaign" to a formal recall.

Still, the automaker cautions that this is a simplified list, and not every car within these model years is under recall. But "it's fair to say that most vehicles within each model and year would be affected by one or more of the recalls," spokesman Chris Martin said on June 8, 2015.

On Feb. 3, 2016, Honda added a huge chunk of additional cars to its Takata airbag recall, all under recall for driver-side airbag inflators: the 2007-11 Honda CR-V, 2011-15 Honda CR-Z, 2010-14 Honda FCX Clarity, 2010-14 Honda Insight, 2009-14 Honda Fit (including the Fit EV), 2007-14 Honda Ridgeline, 2013-16 Acura ILX (including the ILX Hybrid), 2007-16 Acura RDX, 2005-12 Acura RL, 2009-14 Acura TL and 2010-13 Acura ZDX. Again, not every car in this latest group is included, so owners should check their vehicle identification number online for specifics.

Honda made a host of additions on May 27, 2016, all for passenger-side airbags. Some of them are for cars that are already under recall for driver-side airbags. A number of them are new, however, including the 2009-11 Acura TSX sedan and 2011 TSX Sport Wagon, the 2010-11 Acura ZDX, the 2009-11 Honda Pilot, 2008-11 Accord, 2010-11 Accord Crosstour, 2009-11 CR-V, 2006-11 Civic (including the Civic Hybrid and natural-gas Civic GX), 2010-11 Insight, 2007-11 Ridgeline and 2007-11 Fit. Regulators initially restricted many of the May 27 additions — particularly for later model years — to more-humid regions of the country. But NHTSA plans to expand the recall to eventually become national, so if you see your car on this list, it will likely be recalled at some point regardless of location.

Honda added more cars in January 2017, including the 2006-12 Acura RL, 2012 Acura TSX sedan and 2012 TSX Sport Wagon, 2012 Honda Accord, 2012 Honda Crosstour, 2012 Honda Pilot and many more cars already listed above, all for passenger-side inflators.

In January 2018, Honda placed many more cars under passenger-airbag inflator recall as directed by the latest phase of Takata's recall expansion. Most cars under the latest expansion are under recall for the first time; some have had prior Takata recalls for the driver-side airbag inflator. New models under the passenger-airbag expansion are the 2013 Acura TSX (including the TSX Sport Wagon) and 2013 ZDX; and the 2013 Honda Crosstour, 2013 FCX Clarity, 2012-13 Fit (including the Fit EV), 2012-13 Insight, 2013 Pilot and 2012-13 Ridgeline.

Note that many models covered in the 2016-18 expansions are already under recall as automakers expand the scope or geographic region of recalls within a given model year, add different inflators or recall replacement inflators.

Which airbag inflators are in the recall? Repeated expansions from Honda, including large expansions in early 2017 and 2018 for passenger-side inflators, make for a complex situation. Some cars are under recall for passenger-side airbags, some for driver-side airbags and some for both. Check with Honda’s online search tool at recalls.honda.com or recalls.acura.com, and look on NHTSA’s VIN search tool, too. Individual models will vary, and given that Honda's Takata recalls don't necessarily affect every car in a listed model year, some owners in this set may need repairs for one airbag inflator or the other, or both inflators.

Jaguar Land Rover

What's the list of vehicles under recall?

  • 2009-15 Jaguar XF
  • 2007-12 Land Rover Range Rover

Read on for more detailed information regarding the above list:

Which cars are under recall: The 2009-11 Jaguar XF and 2007-11 Land Rover Range Rover are now affected by NHTSA's expansion of the Takata airbag inflator recall to include passenger-side airbags. (Jaguar Land Rover is a business unit of affiliated brands, both owned by India's Tata Motors.) The cars under recall are based on how humid it is where you live, but NHTSA plans to expand the recall to eventually become national. If you see your car listed above, it'll likely become recalled at some point regardless of location.

In January 2017, JLR expanded the recall to add the 2012 Jaguar XF and 2012 Land Rover Range Rover. In January 2018, JLR added the 2013-15 Jaguar XF. (Many of the expansion-covered models are already under recall as automakers expand the scope or geographic region of recalls within a given model year, add different inflators or recall replacement inflators.)

Which airbag inflators are under recall? Passenger-side airbag inflators on all affected cars.

Mazda

What's the list of vehicles under recall?

  • 2004-09 B-Series
  • 2007-12 CX-7
  • 2007-15 CX-9
  • 2003-11 Mazda6
  • 2006-07 Mazdaspeed6
  • 2004-06 MPV
  • 2004-11 RX-8

Read on for more detailed information regarding the above list:

Which cars are under recall? Mazda's national Takata airbag recall affect the 2003-08 Mazda6, including the 2006-07 Mazdaspeed6 built from Aug. 4, 2005, to June 29, 2007, as well as the 2004-08 RX-8 and the 2004-06 B-Series pickup truck. (Mazda says there are no build-date boundaries for the RX-8, B-Series and non-Mazdaspeed Mazda6 in the affected model years.) The B-Series and 2003 Mazda6 were not under recall originally; Mazda added them June 4, 2015.

A smaller group of Mazda6s, RX-8s and MPVs are under a separate Takata recall in areas of high absolute humidity, so if you live around the Gulf Coast or certain U.S. islands and own a Mazda6 or RX-8, your car may have more than one recall. The regional campaign affects 2003-06 Mazda6s built from Jan. 17, 2003, to Dec. 13, 2005; 2004-05 RX-8s built from April 10, 2003, to Aug. 20, 2004; and 2004-05 MPVs built from Aug. 20, 2003, to Aug. 27, 2004. Given the recall only affects "certain" cars, according to Mazda, not every car in those regions and build dates may get the recall.

On Jan. 22, 2016, NHTSA expanded the recalls for the B-Series to add the driver-side airbag inflator. Mazda responded on Feb. 1 by recalling the 2004-06 B-Series pickup trucks to include driver-side airbag inflators; the original recall only applied to passenger-side airbag inflators.

Mazda made a host of additions on May 27, 2016, all for passenger-side airbags. Many of them are for cars already under recall for driver-side airbags. Others are new, however, including the 2009-11 Mazda6, 2006 MPV, the 2007-11 CX-7, 2007-11 CX-9 and 2006-11 RX-8. Regulators initially restricted many of the May 27 additions — particularly for later model years — to more-humid regions of the country. But NHTSA plans to expand the recall to eventually become national, so if you see your car on this list, it will likely be recalled at some point regardless of location.

In January 2017, Mazda expanded the recall to include the 2007-09 B-Series pickup and model-year 2012 versions of the CX-7 and CX-9 SUVs as well as the Mazda6 sedan. In July 2017, Mazda issued a new recall to put permanent replacement inflators in about 205,000 model-year 2007-11 Mazda CX-7 and CX-9 SUVs and 2009-11 Mazda6 sedans that had been recalled in May 2016. Under the previous recall, they were getting temporary repairs with new inflators of the same type recalled. In August 2017, it added a recall of 2012 models of these cars for permanent replacements.

In January 2018, Mazda added the 2013 Mazda6 and CX-9 under passenger-side inflator recall; it also included additional regions to existing recalls for various cars listed above. All stemmed from the latest planned expansion of Takata's airbag recall.

Note that for the major expansions from 2016 to 2018, many models involved are already under recall as automakers expand the scope or geographic region of recalls within a given model year, add different inflators or recall replacement inflators.

Which airbag inflators are in the recall? Specific cars vary, but the pre-2007 B-Series and pre-2009 Mazda6 and RX-8 model years are largely under recall for both inflators, while other vehicles and model years are largely under recall for the passenger side only.

Mitsubishi

What's the list of vehicles under recall?

  • 2012-17 i-MiEV
  • 2004-07 Lancer
  • 2004-06 Lancer Evolution
  • 2004 Lancer Sportback
  • 2006-09 Raider

Read on for more detailed information regarding the above list:

Which cars are under recall? We originally reported that Mitsubishi was recalling 2004-05 Lancer compact cars and 2006-07 Raider pickup trucks. On May 28, 2015, Mitsubishi expanded the Lancer recall to include passenger airbag inflators on 2004-06 models built from Aug. 4, 2003, through Aug. 28, 2006. The expansion also included Lancer Evolution models built from Feb. 11, 2004, through Sept. 1, 2006, and Lancer Sportback hatchbacks built from Aug. 4, 2003, to Jan. 23, 2004.

On May 27, 2015, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles expanded the Raider recall to include the 2006-11 model years. The Raider is closely related to the Dodge Dakota and was built in affiliation with then-DaimlerChrysler (now FCA). Dodge is an FCA brand.

Previously, Mitsubishi "had a regional campaign going" on the Lancer, spokesman Alex Fedorak said. "It's going to go to a national campaign now," he said.

On May 27, 2016, Mitsubishi and FCA added the 2007 Lancer, including Lancer Evolution models built until June 19, 2007.

In January 2017, Mitsubishi expanded the recall to cover the 2012 and 2014 i-MiEV electric hatchbacks.

Which airbag inflators are in the recall? Both driver- and passenger-side inflators for the Lancer and Raider, but only the passenger-side inflator for the i-MiEV up through the 2012 and 2014 i-MiEV; it's unclear which inflator is under recall on the 2013 and 2015-17 iMiEV.

Nissan

What's the list of vehicles under recall?

  • 2003-08 Infiniti FX
  • 2001 Infiniti I30
  • 2002-04 Infiniti I35
  • 2006-10 Infiniti M
  • 2002-03 Infiniti QX4
  • 2001-03 Nissan Maxima
  • 2002-04 Nissan Pathfinder
  • 2002-06 Nissan Sentra
  • 2007-12 Nissan Versa

Read on for more detailed information regarding the above list:

Which cars are under recall? Nissan spokesman Steve Yaeger said Nissan has recalled all vehicles with defective Takata inflators: 2001-03 Maxima sedans, 2001-04 Pathfinder SUVs and 2002-06 Sentra compact sedans, as well as 2001-03 Infiniti I sedans, 2006 Infiniti M35/45 sedans, 2002-03 QX4 SUVs and 2003 FX SUVs.

"There is significant overlap between national recalls and regional (high humidity) populations," Yaeger wrote in an email. On May 29, 2015, Nissan told NHTSA its existing recalls covered the agency's May 19 expansion.

Nissan made a host of additions on May 27, 2016, all for passenger-side airbags. Some of them are for cars that are already under recall for driver-side airbags. Most them are new, however, including the 2006-08 Infiniti FX, 2007-10 Infiniti M and 2007-11 Nissan Versa. Regulators initially restricted many of the May 27 additions — particularly for later model years — to more-humid regions of the country. But NHTSA plans to expand the recall to eventually become national, so if you see your car on this list, it will likely be recalled at some point regardless of location.

In January 2017, Nissan expanded the recall to add the 2012 Versa hatchback. In July 2017, Nissan added the 2007-11 Versa sedan and 2007-12 Versa hatchback with a new type of inflator in the driver-side airbag. They have an inflator containing a desiccant, or drying agent, to protect the propellant from degradation. These inflators are not covered under the massive phased recall of all non-desiccated inflators and were thought to be safe, but Takata recently found one group of those to be potentially dangerous, as well, and issued a recall.

In January 2018, Nissan included additional regions to various model years for the Versa as part of Takata's latest expansion, though the expansion didn't add any new model years. Note that for the major recall expansions from 2016 to 2018, many of the expansion-covered models are already under recall as automakers expand the scope or geographic region of recalls within a given model year, add different inflators or recall replacement inflators.

Which airbag inflators are in the recall? Driver- and passenger-side airbag inflators are involved, depending on the model.

Subaru

What's the list of vehicles under recall?

  • 2003-06 Baja
  • 2009-13 Forester
  • 2004-11 Impreza (including WRX/STI)
  • 2003-14 Legacy
  • 2003-14 Outback
  • 2006-14 Tribeca
  • 2012-14 WRX/STI

Read on for more detailed information regarding the above list:

Which cars are under recall? On May 28, 2015, Subaru expanded its Takata recalls to include all 2004 and 2005 Subaru Imprezas built from Jan. 28, 2003, to May 31, 2005. Previously, the 2004-05 Impreza was under recall only in areas of high absolute humidity.

Subaru spokesman Michael McHale told us the expansion doesn't affect Subaru's Takata campaigns on the 2003-08 Legacys and Outbacks, and 2003-05 Bajas. NHTSA expanded the pool on Dec. 23 to include the 2006-08 Legacys and Outbacks. All recalls are national in scope.

Subaru made a host of additions on May 27, 2016, all for passenger-side airbags. Some of the additions are for cars listed above that were previously missed. Most them are new, however, including the 2006 Baja, 2006-11 Impreza, 2009-11 Legacy and Outback, 2006-11 Tribeca and 2009-11 Forester. Regulators initially restricted many of the May 27 additions — particularly for later model years — to more-humid regions of the country. But NHTSA plans to expand the recall to eventually become national, so if you see your car on this list, it will likely be recalled at some point regardless of location.

If you have an Impreza-based WRX or WRX STI for the Impreza's model years listed above, chances are it's also under recall. Subaru confirmed as much in a major January 2017 expansion that also added 2012 model-year versions of the Tribeca, Forester, Legacy, Outback and WRX (but not the 2012 Impreza).

In January 2018, Subaru added 2013 model-year versions of the Legacy, Forester, Tribeca, Outback and WRX. Note that for major expansions from 2016 to 2018, many expansion-covered models were already under previous recall as automakers expand the scope or geographic region of recalls within a given model year, add different inflators or recall replacement inflators.

Which airbag inflators are under recall? Passenger-side airbag inflators on all cars through the 2013 model year; it's unclear which inflators are under recall for the 2014 model year.

Which cars are under recall? An expansion of Takata recalls in May 2016 added Tesla to the list; regulators later announced that the 2012 Model S was part of the recall, though the 2013-16 Model S employs Takata inflators that will be recalled at some point. In January 2018, Tesla added the 2013 Model S to the pool.

Which airbag inflators are under recall? The passenger-side airbag inflator through the 2013 model year; it's unclear which inflators are under recall for the 2014-16 model years.

  • 2007-12 Toyota Yaris sedan

Read on for more detailed information regarding the above list:

Which cars are under recall? Including expansions on June 16, 2015, March 2, 2016, and May 24, 2016, Toyota's Takata recalls for any airbag inflator encompass the 2003-11 Corolla and Matrix, 2003-06 Tundra, 2002-07 Sequoia, 2004-05 RAV4, 2006-11 Yaris, 2010-11 4Runner, 2011 Sienna, 2008-11 Scion xB, 2007-11 Lexus ES, 2010-11 Lexus GX, 2006-11 Lexus IS (including the IS convertible and IS F high-performance sedan) and 2002-10 Lexus SC. (Lexus is Toyota's luxury division, while Scion is a discontinued Toyota brand.)

Toyota spokeswoman Cindy Knight said on June 17, 2015, that "not every single vehicle of the model year" listed will actually be recalled, but a Cars.com analysis in 2015 of Toyota's self-reported recall totals versus Automotive News sales data for the respective model years suggests that the vast majority of cars in the recalled years will, in fact, be recalled. Owners in regions with high absolute humidity may receive unique regional recall notices instead of national ones, but Knight said the repairs are the same.

Toyota made a host of additions on May 27, 2016, all for passenger-side airbags. All of the additions are for cars listed above that were previously missed. Regulators initially restricted many of the May 27 additions — particularly for later model years — to more-humid regions of the country, but NHTSA plans to expand the recall to eventually become national, so if you see your car on this list, it will likely be recalled at some point regardless of location.

An additional expansion came in January 2017, when Toyota added the 2012 model-year versions of the Scion xB and Toyota 4Runner, Corolla, Matrix, Sienna and Yaris. The automaker also added model-year 2012 versions of the Lexus IS (including the IS convertible and IS-F high-performance sedan), ES 350, GX and LFA.

In January 2018, Toyota added a host of new vehicles under a major planned expansion of Takata recalls. Many were already under previous Takata recall (or had recalls for certain regions only), but the expansion added for the first time 2013 model-year versions of the Scion xB; the Toyota Corolla, Matrix, 4Runner and Sienna; and the Lexus IS (including the IS convertible and IS F high-performance sedan) and GX.

Note that for the major recall expansions from 2016 to 2018, many of the expansion-covered models are already under recall as automakers expand the scope or geographic region of recalls within a given model year, add different inflators or recall replacement inflators.

Which airbag inflators are under recall? The 2004-05 RAV4 is under a driver-side recall. All others are under a passenger-side recall up through the 2013 model year; later model years are still unknown. Toyota advises owners with unrepaired recalls in the latter group to keep passengers out of the front passenger seat.

Read on for more detailed information regarding the above list:

Which cars are under recall? NHTSA said its Jan. 22, 2016, recall expansion would add both VW and Audi — the first time the Takata recalls involved the Volkswagen Group, which includes Audi. Volkswagen responded on Feb. 10 with recalls for the 2006-14 Passat sedan and wagon, 2012-14 Eos convertible, 2010-14 Golf hatchback and 2009-14 CC sedan. Meanwhile, Audi recalled the 2005-15 A3, 2006-09 A4 convertible, 2009-12 Q5 SUV and 2010-11 A5 convertible.

On June 2, 2016, Volkswagen Group recalled the 2004-08 Audi A4 and 2005-11 Audi A6 for passenger-side Takata airbag inflators.The cars being recalled are based on how humid it is where you live, but NHTSA plans to expand the recall to eventually become national. If you see your car listed above, it'll likely become recalled at some point regardless of location.

An additional expansion came in January 2017, when the Volkswagen Group added the 2007-09 Audi S4 convertible and S6 sedan, as well as the 2005-08 S4 sedan and wagon, 2007-08 RS 4 sedan and 2008 RS 4 convertible.

In January 2018, the automaker added the 2010-11 Audi S6 and expanded the regions for cars under prior Takata recall; it later added the 2012 A5 Cabriolet, 2010-12 S5 Cabriolet and 2012 Q5. Note that for major recall expansions from 2016 to 2018, many expansion-covered models are already under recall as automakers expand the scope or geographic region of recalls within a given model year, add different inflators or recall replacement inflators.

Which airbag inflators are under recall? Depending on the car, the driver-side or passenger-side airbag inflator up through the 2013 model year; it's unclear which inflators are under recall for the 2014-16 model years.

More Questions

What's at issue? Takata's recall crisis stems from faulty airbag inflators, which have a propellant that's been found to degrade over time and can inflate with too much force, rupture the inflator and spew shrapnel into the cabin. They've been linked to 11 U.S. deaths and more than 100 injuries worldwide.

Are most of the recalled cars still in humid regions only? It depends on the specific car. Regulators say the rupture risk is greatest in areas of high absolute humidity, a factor that’s been linked to inflator degradation. NHTSA has said it wants to make all regional recalls national, but in the wake of a massive expansion of passenger-side airbag recalls in May 2016, automakers have based their Takata expansions on geographic zones of humidity, with older cars under recall in larger areas and newer cars under recall in only the most humid zones. But NHTSA says it will eventually expand those recalls to national status, so if you see your car anywhere on this list, there’s a good chance it will be under recall at some point regardless of where you live.

How do I know if my car is under recall? If you see your car on any of the lists above, it could be under recall, but it won't always be. At least three major automakers under Takata recall (FCA, Honda and Toyota) said not every car in a listed model year could actually be under recall.

That said, the May 19, 2015 announcement suggests more cars in a given year should have recalls. That's because NHTSA is pushing for nationwide recalls instead of regional ones, and some cars, like the Mitsubishi Lancer, have expanded their recall status to entire model years instead of a range of manufacture dates.

If the recall on your car is still specific to a manufacture date, most cars show that (by the month, at least) on a sticker in the driver’s doorjamb. You can also check your VIN on NHTSA's recall look-up site, safercar.gov/vinlookup, but it could take some time before the expanded Takata recalls are reflected there.

"It generally takes anywhere from a few days to several weeks for automakers to gather individual VINs associated with a recall," NHTSA's website said as of May 20, 2015. "It is important that you check back periodically as a recall on your vehicle may not show up immediately."

How do I find my VIN? It’s etched under your windshield at the bottom of the driver side. Watch our video for more information, then use NHTSA's VIN look-up tool to see if your particular car is under recall.

Will repairs take longer if you live in a non-humid region? Most likely. "All the recalls are national recalls," former NHTSA spokesman Gordon Trowbridge said. But "in some cases, they [automakers] will begin by addressing high-humidity areas and more [repairs] to additional geographic zones at our direction."

What about people who already got their cars repaired? Some owners might need to have their cars serviced again, Trowbridge said. Takata's consent order from NHTSA confirms at least six separate Takata airbag inflators requiring replacement, in some cases for "inflators previously installed as remedy parts." Already, BMW and FCA said that's the case for subsequent recall expansions.

Other owners won't need additional repairs. Mitsubishi's Fedorak said owners who have already received repairs are "good ... [and] they don't have to be recalled again."

I have one of these cars. Should I stop driving it? Not according to NHTSA. Former Administrator Mark Rosekind told The New York Times that owners still "need to drive their cars," but they should check regularly with dealers to ensure defective airbag inflators are fixed "as soon as possible." Rosekind cautioned that all of the sought-after repairs could take years to complete.

The danger of a rupture takes "several years of exposure to persistent conditions of high absolute humidity," Takata said in a consent order filed by NHTSA. But that could also vary depending on vehicle design and manufacturing, Takata said.

I got my airbag fixed and it still looks the same. Why isn't it different? Remember, the Takata recall specifically involves the airbag inflator, not the airbag itself. Some automakers replace only the inflator, which is usually mounted to the backside of the airbag assembly, while others replace the entire assembly, including the inflator. In either case, it's unlikely the plastic housing over the front of the airbag — what you see from the outside — has been replaced as part of the procedure. That's why it may appear that you still have your old airbag.

What about other recalls? What makes them so important? Glad you asked. Check our video below for all the answers.
