Know Your Rights: Find out if your car is part of the Takata airbag recall

As we’ve written before (twice), Takata’s airbags are defective and potentially dangerous, and are now subject to a recall. “Takata has been fined $14,000 per day by the NHTSA since Feb. 20 for allegedly dumping documents on the agency without a legally-required explanation of what’s in them,” says Mashable.

The NHTSA is awaiting a full list of affected vehicles from the automakers involved. However, you can still check whether your car is currently on the list here, at safecar.gov. Or you can call your dealer, who will replace airbags for free as parts become available. Honda has the most cars involved, and some models by BMW, Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru, and Toyota are also affected.

This is the largest auto recall in U.S. history. More information by AP.
