Potential Number of Units Affected 1400000
Takata (TK Global LLC) is recalling certain Non-Azide Driver air bag Inflators (NADI). These inflators were used in some brands of 1995-2000 vehicles and do not contain phase stabilized ammonium nitrate (PSAN) propellant. Due to a manufacturing issue, the NADI inflators may absorb moisture, causing the inflators to rupture or the air bag cushion to underinflate.
Takata will be working with vehicle manufacturers to determine into which vehicles the affected inflators were installed either as original or replacement equipment during service. As this work progresses, numerous vehicle recalls will likely be announced by the impacted vehicle manufacturers. The recall is expected to begin on January 24, 2020.
