Ford issued a new recall for automobiles that had been previously recalled in 2016.

A Takata spokesman said the company will make all attempts to ensure it can deliver replacement inflators as soon as possible. Like so many others, Tesla has been caught up in this mess and, coordinating the the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), announced a recall of 2012 Model S vehicles in January of 2017 to replace the passenger-side air bag. The airbags, made by Takata, were part of a 2016 mass recall of over 19 million vehicles. NHTSA must do more, he said, to make the recall a priority. Vehicles scheduled for future recalls will not show up in this search, so it is important that you check regularly, at least twice per year. The inflators only become defective with age, so the recall schedule should see affected vehicles fixed before they become a safety risk.
