The Center for Auto Safety wants the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, or NHTSA, to reexamine all extensions granted under the Coordinated Remedy Order and amendments, the group said in a recent news release.

Since 2014 onwards, the company has recalled over 3 lakh vehicles in India to fix the faulty passenger-facing front airbag. These airbags can explode when deployed, causing serious injury or even death.

Older models and those in cities with high humidity and temperatures are getting priority.

Fourteen automakers are recalling vehicles due to potentially deadly Takata airbag inflators.

The recall fix is free and can be made by the service department of your automobile manufacturer's local dealership.
