Chrysler stated that they are recalling 208,783 more vehicles in the U.S. equipped with defective Takata airbags, The Detroit News on December 12 stated.
Chrysler is nowrecalling an estimated 617,000 vehicles. The decision to widen the recall was established on December 11 after pressure from the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA). Initially limited to high-humidity regions like Florida and Puerto Rico, Chrysler is now expanding their recall as far west as Texas. New reports reveal that humidity may affect the compound used to inflate the airbags, causing them to deploy too forcefully and expel shrapnel.

Automaker BMW recently issued a recall of some 1.6 million older versions of 3 Series vehicles with airbags that may potentially harm passengers during deployment, Tech Times stated on July 21.
A probe conducted by BMW revealed that the airbags in the affected vehicles may burst and shoot off metal fragments due to faulty preparation in the airbag’s inflator case. Excessive force in the inflator can cause the airbags to burst during activation, which may injure the passenger in the front seat. BMW said there were no known injuries involving the affected vehicles before they issued the recall. BMW is just one of several automotive giants that have issued recalls due to concerns over faulty airbags manufactured by Takata.
