Pontiac Vibes are added

Toyota has announced about a recall due to faulty airbags. Nearly 766,300 vehicles were affected by this recall. Now nearly 85K Pontiac Vibes are added to this recall. The problem with the vehicles is connected with the problematic airbags provided by the supplier Takata.

 

It should be noted that 5 other manufacturers also use the airbags provided by the supplier Takata. After the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) opened en evaluation into the matter, it found out that nearly 844,277 Toyota vehicles should be recalled due to the defect. Model-years 2003-2004 Pontiac Vibe vehicles are also to be added to this recall.

 

According to General Motors spokesman Alan Adler, there is not a model-by-model breakdown of the affected vehicles, yet. However, nearly 85,000 Pontiac Vibes could be affected by the recall in the United States. The problem with the affected vehicles is that the airbag inflator may rupture in a crash resulting in the bag not working properly. If this happens, metal parts may be thrown onto the passengers.
