MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Details on the massive air bag recall are starting to come out, including which cars are included.
Takata, a Japanese company, agreed to recall nearly 34-million cars and trucks. Their air bags can explode with too much force, shooting shrapnel into passengers.
At least six people have died and more than 100 have been hurt, including a Minnesota woman who was blinded in a crash.
The government said Thursday models by Ford, Honda, BMW and Fiat Chrysler are all affected. That includes some Honda Civics, Ford Mustangs and Ram pickups.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has created some online resources to help people with those vehicles. Vehicle owners can look up their car with the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
However, the government said it still waiting on automakers to supply a complete list of affected vehicles, meaning we could see even more added to the list and that the website will continually be updated.
