If you own one of these cars, the Takata airbags installed in them may be missing a chemical additive that prevents excessive moisture absorption. Without this additive, these airbags can degrade, causing excessive deployment that may release shrapnel throughout the cab of your car. Please take your vehicle to the nearest dealership. Repairs should be free of charge, even if you are not the vehicle’s original owner.
Remember, despite recalls, if a defective vehicle or component part causes injury during a car accident, you are entitled to hold the manufacturer accountable and seek compensation for all of your damages.
