All VINs Affected by Takata Recalls Now Searchable

This recall involves 11 different vehicle makes and roughly 34 million vehicles, according to NHTSA.

NHTSA announced that all of the of the vehicle identification numbers affected by the huge Takata recall are now loaded into its VIN Lookup Tool on SaferCar.gov. The Takata air bag recall, one of the largest and most complex product recalls in history, involves 11 different vehicle makes and roughly 34 million vehicles. "That's millions of people who urgently need to know what steps they should take in order to protect themselves and their loved ones," the DOT agency's announcement stated.

The Lookup Tool is simple to use and will inform consumers about all open recalls on their vehicles.

Takata is engaged in a national recall of certain types of driver and passenger side air bag inflators that were made with a propellant that can degrade over time; it has caused ruptures that have been blamed for seven deaths and more than 100 injuries worldwide.

A second NHTSA tool is a new video, Understanding Vehicle Recalls, which explains what to expect if a car is recalled and what to do next.
