Earlier this year Ford issued a regional recall for vehicles with Takata airbag inflators in areas of high humidity. The thought was humidity is to blame for the inflators failing under pressure, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) believes the product is doomed to fail regardless of location.
Ford is taking NHTSA's advice and issuing a new recall for over 500,000 cars nationwide. The recall includes the 2005-2008 Mustangs and 2005-2006 GT.More information on carcomplaints.com
A large number of Subaru vehicles have been recalled because they contain dangerous airbag inflators made by Takata. The shrapnel-hurling inflators have been recalled in over 37 million vehicles (and counting).
