Does Your Car Have The Recalled Airbags

http://www.washingtonpost.com/busine...y.html?hpid=z2

It isn't just Japanese cars that have these defective airbags made by Takata.

Eeek! I have one of those cars! I just had it in for its regular maintenance. I wonder if they checked the bags....?

Probably yes, I just had the switch replaced on recall and really can't tell the difference between the old and new one when turned slightly running.

I do not know if my Honda Civic 2010 has the bad ones or not. I have not bothered with my Honda CRV with the 304,000 miles. I plan on turning it in for $1000 bucks to the State if I get approval from the smog people.

Mine's also an Impaler, so no problem here either.

My wife's 2007 Honda Element qualifies. From what I understand, Takata was a major vendor to Honda so lot of their vehicles are bound to be affected.
