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:
- Over time, Takata’s airbag inflators are susceptible to moisture.
- 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.
- The problem is responsible for 11 deaths in the USA alone.
