Latest News on Defective Airbags

BMW has recalled 1.6 million 3 Series vehicles because of a problem with the vehicles’ airbags.  The airbags were manufactured for the BMW automobiles by the Takata Corporation and have a problem with their inflator.  Should the airbags deploy, the metal case that houses the airbag inflator may rupture and send metal shards flying at passengers inside of the car.   No injuries related to BMW’s recall have been reported.

Two fatal accidents were reported in the United States for the very same problem with cars manufactured by Honda.   This summer, Honda recalled over one million vehicles in California because of airbag problems related to this issue.  General Motors has also been forced to deal with the safety concern and they have stopped selling 2013 and 2014 Chevrolet Cruze models because of the problems with the airbags also made by the Takata Corporation.  Chevrolet had previously recalled over 30,000 cars related to this problem.

Manufacturers have a responsibility to place safe products on the market.  With these current recalls involving faulty airbags, not only is the airbag potentially unable to protect someone in the event of a car accident, but it also may cause additional harm.  Safety measures in modern cars are far advanced in comparison to the cars of yesterday.  However these safety measures can only protect people in car accidents if they are designed and manufactured properly.  Recall procedures are put in place to take dangerous products off the market and to protect the safety of American consumers.  Hopefully all of these defective airbags have been identified and will be replaced and repaired as soon as possible.  To check to see if your BMW 3 Series vehicle is subject to the latest recall, please visit the following website and enter your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number):
