Home / Blog / Confirmed: 11th Death From Defective Takata Airbags

A defective product can cause devastation for a number of consumers before its pulled from the shelves. Over the years, we’ve seen firsthand what happens when one of these defective products makes it into consumer hands, but none has had the widespread potential for injury as defective Takata airbags.

In recent years, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has warned that up to 70 million vehicles may contain defective Takata airbags that have the potential to rupture when inflated, leading to severe injuries to passengers and even death. In fact, the NHTSA just confirmed the eleventh known death from these defective airbags. As a result, the NHTSA yet again urges folks with vehicles on the following list to contact their dealerships immediately for a no-cost replacement and repair:

  • 2001-2002 Honda Civic
  • 2001-2002 Honda Accord
  • 2002-2003 Acura 3.2TL
  • 2002 Honda CR-V
  • 2002 Honda Odyssey
  • 2003 Acura 3.2CL
  • 2003 Honda Pilot
