Raising Awareness on Automotive Safety

Keeping our community safe is a top priority for Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda Solis, that’s why she has joined fellow members of Airbag Recall: Southern California – a coalition of community leaders and organizations committed to raising awareness about the current Takata airbag recall. Supervisor Solis is joining efforts to alert drivers of the risks posed by the largest safety recall in U.S. history.

According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, there is a 50% chance of explosion upon deployment by airbag inflators in certain 2001, 2002 and 2003 Hondas and Acuras, as a result of the ongoing Takata airbag recall.

To see if your vehicle has been affected, visit AirbagRecall.com and enter your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) found on the driver-side dashboard by the windshield or on your insurance card. If you are notified that your recall is incomplete, your airbag inflator will be replaced for FREE. Schedule an appointment at your automaker’s local dealership as soon as possible. If the remedy is not available, call the dealer to be notified when parts are available for your FREE repair.

It is important to spread the word about this recall to save lives. By alerting friends, family, and neighbors, we can achieve our goal of repairing or replacing every defective airbag in Southern California.
