All The Facts

Checking A Vehicle
How can I tell if my vehicle has been involved in this recall?

To find out if your vehicle is affected by this recall enter your VIN on our website.

What is a VIN number and where do I find it?

VIN stands for Vehicle Identification Number, the 17-character code that is unique to each vehicle. It may  be found on your state vehicle registration, vehicle insurance, or on the vehicle itself – on the driver’s  side dashboard at the bottom of the windshield or on the driver’s side doorjamb. Your VIN will not  include the letter “i” or the letter “o”, but may include the number “1” or the number “0.”

What do I do if my vehicle has been recalled?

Contact your local dealer to make an appointment for a free repair.

What do I do if the results page says parts are unavailable for my vehicle?

If parts are not yet available for your vehicle you should still call your local dealership so they can call you when parts are available.

About the Recall
How much does it cost to replace my airbag inflator?

If your vehicle is recalled, the airbag inflator will be replaced for free by your local dealership.

What is safer - driving with a defective airbag or turning off your airbag?

Never disable your airbags. It is illegal and unsafe to disable an airbag in a vehicle. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that frontal airbags saved 2,400 lives in 2014 alone. If you are involved in a crash, it is more likely that your airbag will work properly and protect you than rupture and cause harm. An airbag that is purposely disabled has a 100-percent chance of failing to provide any protection in a crash.

The vast majority of Takata airbags will perform as expected. If you feel uncomfortable continuing to drive your vehicle before the recall repair has been performed, you should contact your dealer and ask for a loaner until an interim or a final repair is completed. Dealers and manufacturers are not required by law to offer you a loaner vehicle, but it can never hurt to ask.
