(AP) The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released models from 14 different automakers that are being recalled to replace potentially deadly Takata air bag inflators.
The recalls are being managed by NHTSA and are being phased in over the next three years.
Older models and those in cities with high humidity and temperatures are getting priority.
NHTSA reports 34 million vehicles are currently under recall for approximately 46 million defective Takata air bags that can explode when the air bag deploys, causing serious injury or death.
In December 2019 additional air bags are expected to be recalled bringing the total number of affected air bags to around 56 to 70 million.
To see if your vehicle is involved, go to nhtsa.gov/recalls and key in your 17-digit vehicle identification number (VIN).
