Airbag Failure Alert

A new NBC report has some alarming facts for the average driver. They say you can tune your engine, rotate your tires and make sure your brakes are working right – and you may still be riding in a ticking time bomb. This is not much of an exaggeration. At least 45 million vehicles, that’s one in six vehicles, suffered from an unrepaired safety problem that is subject to an outstanding recall, according to a recent study by J.D. Power. In fact, millions more vehicle could be involved. We may never know the real number because it can be challenging to track compliance rates on older recalls.

Power study is in line with other recent research and reflects the fact that the U.S. has seen a significant increase in safety-related recalls – from faulty ignitions to defective airbags that can shoot shrapnel into the passenger compartments.
