airbag recallNearly 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.
