Although Colorado isn’t considered part of the urgent recall, you should, none-the-less, take this recall seriously and find out if your vehicle is part of this recall notice and get your airbags fixed, or replaced.

NHSTA Deputy Administrator David Friedman said, “Responding to these recalls, whether old or new, is essential to personal safety and it will help aid our ongoing investigation into Takata airbags and what appears to be a problem related to extended exposure to consistently high humidity and temperatures. However, we’re leaving no stone unturned in our aggressive pursuit to track down the full geographic scope of this issue.”
