Nearly 8 million vehicles on the road may have faulty airbags, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said this week.
Drivers in high-humidity regions like Florida are at higher risk, because moisture worsens the problem. The airbags in question, made by Takata Corp. of Japan, were installed between 2000 – 2011 in vehicles made by BMW, Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru, and Toyota.
Among the more popular models possibly at risk are Accords, Civics, Corollas, Impalas, Legacys, Mustangs, and Sentras. Owners are urged to contact their dealers immediately.
