NHTSA, Automakers Announce Massive Vehicle Recall

By Car Accident Help on February 2, 2015

Oklahoma Auto Product LiabilityThe National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and several automakers recently announced a recall that will affect over 2.1 million vehicles, according to an article in the Detroit Free Press. Experienced auto accident attorneys throughout Oklahoma and the rest of the country are watching the news unfold, aware of the risks that hidden defects pose to drivers and passengers.

The recall covers vehicles in model years 2002, 2003, and 2004, including the Jeep Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, and Liberty; the Dodge Viper; the Toyota Corolla, Matrix, and Avalon; the Pontiac Vibe; the Honda Odyssey; and the Acura MDX. All these vehicles share an air bag system component that may be faulty, causing the bag to deploy at the wrong times or to deploy too forcefully. In some cases, deploying air bags have ruptured, causing injuries.

Some of the vehicles covered by the new recall were the subject of an earlier recall for a similar problem, according to the NHTSA. However, the previous recall may not have fixed the problem. The NHTSA has received reports of 93 cases in which a previously-repaired vehicle’s air bag still malfunctioned. In nine of these cases, the air bag ruptured, causing injuries to three different people.

So far, the NHTSA estimates, as many as six deaths may have been caused by the defective air bag systems.

For more information on the recall, visit the NHTSA’s official website, SaferCar.gov. If you’ve been injured by a faulty vehicle or vehicle component, contact an experienced Oklahoma City auto accident lawyer to learn more about your legal rights and options
