The automotive world and beyond is buzzing about the massive airbag recall covering many millions of vehicles in the United States from nearly two dozen brands. Hereís what you need to know about the problem; which vehicles may have the defective, shrapnel-shooting inflator parts from Japanese supplier Takata; and what to do if your vehicle is one of them.

LATEST UPDATES

8/8/18, 3:30 p.m.: Ford wants to fix every 2006 Ranger pickup so badly, itís willing to pay dealerships $1000 to find every last one. The incentive now applies to approximately 8300 such pickups with faulty Takata airbags out of 33,320 affected in the recall. Of approximately 37 million vehicles recalled to replace frontal driverís- and passenger-side inflators, the 2006 Ranger is considered to be one of the most dangerous because of its potential to spray shrapnel in a crash.

That was my reason for posting this - there are so many makes and models on this list that it's very likely to know someone affected. Myself, I dodged a bullet by one year!

I often read auto news on GasBuddy and this sounds like the most dangerous and comprehensive recall I've seen!
