In October, a federal lawsuit filed in Los Angeles accused Takata Corp. of building millions of shoddy airbag inflators in a cost-cutting measure.
The suspect airbags were installed in vehicles made by Honda, Toyota, Mazda, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Chrysler, Ford and BMW — with Hondas making up the bulk of the list — in various model years ranging from 2000 to 2008.
Vehicle owners concerned about their cars can visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s website and choose the “Search by VIN” option to use their car’s vehicle identification number to determine whether it is at risk.
