Recently, General Motors has recalled roughly 200,000 Saab and Saturn models throughout North America due to defective airbag inflators. These products, Takata air bag inflators, are to be replaced. To help you decide whether you should take action, we have listed the recalled models below:
- Saab 9-3 automobiles from the 2003-2011 models
- Saab 9-5 cars from the 2010-2011 models
- Saturn Astra cars from 2008-2009 models
In January, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration performed the largest recall of Takata airbag inflators. However, sources find it difficult to determine how many vehicles were actually equipped with those defective products since many of those vehicles were covered under prior recalls due to other defective inflators in the vehicles.
Why Were the Takata PSDI-5 Driver Front Airbag Inflators Recalled?
Sources state the inflators can rupture, causing metal fragments from the inflator to injure vehicle occupants if the air bags deploy. Many believe this occurs due to poorly designed propellant devices. As of now, 34 million cars are affected in the United States. An additional 7 million are affected worldwide.
