TAKATA AIRBAGS ARE ALL IN THE NEWS.

BUT WHICH CARS & TRUCKS DO NOT HAVE THEM?

Do a Google Search. Check YAHOO. Call your local reporters.

Or email the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and ask:

 

Which cars/trucks/vehicles do NOT have a TAKATA airbag?

 

(So maybe you can replace your vehicle that has one with a vehicle that does not have one already!)

Here's the short answer to this question: 

Only more and more news on Takata airbags including the fact that they are in many, many cars and trucks, (yours maybe?) including some 2016 and 2017 models! And the fact that NOT ALL of THESE have yet been recalled and may never be!

So Public Interest News Network emailed the National Highway Safety Administration and did ask:

Which cars/trucks/vehicles do NOT have a TAKATA airbag?

Here are the emails and their reply so far:

Good morning Mr. DiCara.  I work in the Public Affairs office for NHTSA.   Will you be writing a story about the air bag recall?  If so, when is your story going to be posted?  Also, is the link below to your website?

Attention: Director/others at the Public Affairs office of NHTSA

Dear Sir/Madam,
Please send me an updated list of the names and models of new and used vehicles that do NOT have Takata airbags installed and whose airbags have never been recalled and what the names of THESE manufacturers are.

Thank-you,

Alan DiCara, Public Interest News Network

Please JOIN Public Interest News Network to ask the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration for this important information or how to obtain it by emailing    Derrell.Lyles@dot.gov

And call your incumbents in Congress to ask them as well since doing might save a few lives and get us better airbags faster.
