Potential Airbag Defects in Ford, Chrysler, Hyundai, Other Popular Vehicles: Who Is Affected?

Do you drive an Audi, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Ford, GMC, Hyundai, Kia, Pontiac, Porsche, Saturn or Volkswagen?

Some models from these brands may have a potentially life-threatening airbag defect. If you have one of these models, you might be able to join a class action investigation.

Lawyers working with Top Class Actions are investigating whether more than 50 models under the automaker’s 14 have had dangerous airbag defects. Lawyers said potential disability had been linked to seven incidents, two of which resulted in death and three that resulted in serious injuries to two drivers and a passenger. The possible manufacturing years of the vehicle cover the defect range from 2002 to 2020.

Lawyers say they believe it is imperative to bring legal action quickly to ensure that all vehicles with potential airbag defects are made safe. They say a class action lawsuit is the best way to achieve that goal.

General Fixed Airbag RecallCreates a Safety Hazard If Not Handled

Problems with airbags are not new. Millions of cars have been towed for various airbag issues. One of the most notable recalls is the Takata airbag. As Consumer Reports explains, Takata airbags fitted to models from 19 car manufacturers caused at least 25 deaths and more than 400 injuries worldwide. The problem with Takata airbags is with the inflator, which can rupture and launch metal shards at the driver and passenger. The recall of the airbags resulted in a $42 million class-action settlement for Volkswagen and Audi, covering 1.35 million vehicles. Overall, about 67 million airbags were included in the recall. The recall of the Takata is just one of many examples of faulty airbags. Tesla recently recalled more than 7,000 vehicles because deployment of side curtain airbags could increase the risk of injury in a crash. In 2021, 100,000 Jeeps and 55,000 Volkswagens were recalled due to airbag problems. Chrysler found that software could disable the airbags without warning, while Volkswagen determined that an AC leak could cause water to damage the airbag control module.
