Subaru Can’t Escape Another Takata Recall

Subaru may want you to feel the freedom but even they can’t escape a Takata recall.

By now I’m guessing you’ve heard about the dangers of Takata airbags, but here’s a quick recap:

  1. Over time, Takata’s airbag inflators are susceptible to moisture.
  2. When that moisture mixes with the airbag’s propellant, the inflator becomes unstable. That means it can explode during a deployment and send shrapnel throughout the cabin.
  3. The problem is responsible for 11 deaths in the USA alone.

Subaru is recalling 186,000 vehicles, some of them for the second time. Find out if yours is on the list (make sure to scroll through all the different recall “zones”).
