Nearly 1.7 million cars, trucks, and SUVs have been issued a recall for a faulty airbag that could lead to potential deaths.

Automakers like Subaru, Tesla, BMW, Volkswagen, Mercedes, and Ferrario are part of the recall.

The recall was issued for vehicles that have an airbag inflator made by Takata Corp. Of Japan.

This has the potential to become the largest recall in US history with the government possibly recalling upto10 million autos by the end of the year.

The issue with the airbag is the chemical ammonium nitrate to create a small explosion to inflate the airbags. The chemical can deteriorate over time due to high humidity and cycles from hot temperatures to cold causing the airbags to malfunction.

If you have any questions, you are asked to contact the dealer you bought the vehicle from.
