For all cars with Takata Airbags, there is an emergency request to have your airbags checked. In Florida alone, these Japanese made airbags have injured eighty-three people and killed three people. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced that over one million residents in Florida still have these airbags in their vehicles. It is advised that if you are unsure if your airbags are safe or not, take your automobiles to a car dealership nearby and have them looked further into. These injuries and deaths can be preventable if the replacement of the airbags is taken care of in advance.
