Airbag Recall

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued a second recall notice for more than 2.12 million automobiles in danger of experiencing unexpected airbag deployment after repair as a result of the initial recall.  This repair has proven ineffective for certain models of Acura, Dodge, Jeep, Honda, Pontiac and Toyota and these vehicles are still prone to inadvertent airbag release in non-crash situations.

While it can be a major inconvenience to schedule an appointment for automobile repairs — especially a second time on the same issue — safety recall notices are not something to postpone.  The force with which an airbag deploys can cause potentially fatal injuries if deployment occurs unexpectedly.

Specific makes and models affected by the additional recall include:

• Acura MDX
• Dodge Viper
• Jeep Grand Cherokee
• Jeep Liberty
• Honda Odyssey
• Pontiac Vibe
• Toyota Corolla
• Toyota Matrix
• Toyota Avalon
