In addition to the tens of millions of vehicles with Takata airbags already under recall, a separate group of 1,400,000 vehicles were recalled on December 4, 2019 because of defective Takata airbags. Takata is recalling vehicles containing certain Non-Azide Driver airbag inflators that were used in some brands of 1995-2000 vehicles. These inflators may absorb moisture, causing the inflators to rupture or the airbag cushion to underinflate due to a manufacturing issue.
