Urgent: Takata Airbag Recall

This news could very well save your life, and I'm not being dramatic. In case you aren't aware, there is a massive airbag recall that has been issued. The airbags in question were made by Takata, a popular supplier, and can be found in 7.8 million vehicles of makes from BMW to Honda, Chrysler, Ford and more.

If your car is on the list, take it to the dealership immediately. Do not drive around town and think about it a few days, because you essentially have a ticking time bomb sitting right in front of you while you do. The problem is that a defect is shooting shrapnel into people when the airbags are activated. One woman in Florida was found after a car wreck with deep lacerations to her neck. The police thought she had been stabbed to death, and it took them a week to finally figure out that the airbag was what killed her.

Spread the word, this recall is incredibly serious.
