What if the instead of protecting you, the airbags in your car actually made your car potentially more dangerous? That is exactly what the Defective Takata Airbags are doing.
The Takata airbags installed in many early to mid-2000s vehicles from Honda, Toyota, Ford, Mazda, and others are potentially deadly.

Regulators and investigators believe that this malfunction is caused by3 the chemical propellant ammonium nitrate, which becomes unstable over time, and is prone to violently exploding upon airbag deployment. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ("NHTSA") has called the Takata Airbag Recall, the “the largest and most complex safety recall in U.S. history."
