Many Car Makers Announce Airbag Recall for Faulty Airbags

Picture this: you are driving down the road and a deer runs out in front of your car. You swerve but bam!! Thank heaven for airbags, right? Generally speaking, yes. However, six drivers were injured by airbags that did more than cushion the blow of a crash. When their cars made impact in their accidents, metal and plastic shards spew throughout the car.

No major injuries were reported. However, 10 car manufacturers including Honda, BMW, Chrysler, Ford, Mazda, Nissan, Mitsubishi and Toyota issued a recall in 13 states and U.S. territories (Puerto Rico) where high humidity could exacerbate the air bag’s hazards. These companies are notifying car owners about the potential dangers of Takata-made airbags.

According to the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration (NTSB), airbag maker Takata is cooperating with the U.S. Department of Transportation regarding the airbag concerns.

Honda has reported the biggest involvement in the recall. The company issued the recall on both driver side and passenger side airbags on some 2001-2006 model year vehicle. The recall extends to models including 2003 to 2005 Honda Accords, 2001 to 2005 Civics, 2002 to 2005 CR-Vs, 2003 to 2004 Elements, 2002 to 2004 Odysseys, 2003 to 2005 Pilots, 2006 Ridgelines, 2003 to 2005 Acura MDXs and the 2005 Acura RL.

Client Reviews
Attorney Graziano is one of the brightest and most compassionate professionals which anyone could work with! He is a great advocate and is extremely knowledgable of the judicial system. He made a very unpleasant legal situation a pleasant journey, and he helped keep things in perspective and in a positive light. I fully recommend him without reservation! Danielle
Robyn made the divorce process bearable by making sure I was ok every step of the way. She was a fighter when she needed to be and compassionate the rest of the time. The thing I liked best about her is that she was encouraging when I needed to get my end of the work done. She was reasonably priced and worked hard to get my case settled. I have since recommended her to 3 other friends who have retained her services. Ana Z.
It seemed like my case took forever but I trusted Ron Graziano and listened to what he had to say. Mr Graziano said that the insurance company was not being fair and that we should go to trial. The trial was very nerve racking however he eased my mind and killed them with proof and knowledge. My outcome of my trial brought me to tears of joy. I could never imagine such a good outcome. Listen to him, have faith and you too will be impressed. Robin
After a divorce, my ex-husband was not keeping up with his scheduled child support payments. With the help and knowledge of Robyn Flynn, I was able to resolve this issue. Being a single mother of three children, Robyn Flynn made me a priority. I felt respected by her always keeping me informed and encouraged. She was not only my lawyer, but a friend during a very stressful time in my life. I would never use another attorney other than Robyn Flynn and highly recommend her to my friends as a trustworthy, professional and experienced lawyer. Anna H.
