Car and Driver: Takata Airbag Recall Expansions: Ferrari, Fiat-Chrysler, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru


Recommended Posts



Six more automakers have specified cars that are now part of the expanded Takata airbag recalls, with Ferrari and Jeep joining the master list for the first time. All of the recalls involve the passenger-side frontal airbag.



First up, Ferrari. Last July, the automaker recalled certain cars in its entire 2015 lineup for Takata airbags, although those airbags had nothing to do with defective inflators shooting shrapnel. Now, 2820 cars in the U.S. are under recall for this problem, including the 2009–2011 California and 2010–2011 458 Italia.


Fiat-Chrysler is recalling 4,322,870 cars. Newly added models include the 2011–2012 Chrysler 300; 2009 Chrysler Aspen and Dodge Durango; 2011–2012 Dodge Charger and Challenger; 2010 Ram 3500; 2007–2012 Jeep Wrangler; and the 2008–2009 Sterling Bullet 4500 and 5500. Also included in previous recalls are the 2004–2008 Dodge Durango and Ram 1500; 2005–2010 Chrysler 300; 2005–2011 Dodge Dakota;  2005–2008 Dodge Magnum; 2005–2009 Ram 2500; 2006–2009 Ram 3500; 2007–2008 Chrysler Aspen; 2008–2010 Dodge Charger and Challenger; and the 2008–2010 Ram 4500 and 5500.




Mazda is recalling 731,628 cars. Newly added models include the 2009–2011 RX-8; 2005–2006 MPV; 2007–2011 CX-7 and CX-9; and the 2009–2011 Mazda 6. Previously recalled cars in this total include the 2003–2008 Mazda 6; 2006–2007 Mazdaspeed 6; 2004 MPV; and the 2004–2008 RX-8.




Mitsubishi is recalling 38,628 cars, plus an unknown number of previously recalled 2006–2009 Raider pickups built by Chrysler. Newly added models include the 2007 Lancer and Lancer Evolution. Previously recalled models in this total include the 2006 Lancer and Lancer Evolution.


2009 Nissan Versa 1.6 sedan


Nissan is recalling 402,450 cars. Newly added models include the 2007–2011 Versa; 2006–2008 Infiniti FX35 and FX45; and 2007–2010 Infiniti M35 and M45. Previously recalled cars in this total also include the 2003–2004 Infiniti I30 and I35; 2005 Infiniti FX35 and FX45; and the 2006 Infiniti M35 and M45.


2010 Subaru Tribeca


Subaru is recalling 383,101 cars. Newly added models include the 2006 Baja; 2006–2011 Impreza and Tribeca; and 2009–2011 Legacy, Outback, and Forester. The 2006 Saab 9-2X, built by Subaru, is also included in this total. Previously recalled models in this total include the 2003–2004 Legacy and Outback and the 2003–2005 Baja. It is unknown at this point if 2006–2011 WRX and WRX STI models are included.


As before, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is dividing up the recalls into three zones, so that not all cars in all regions will be immediately fixed. The full explanation, as well as more info on parts availability, can be found here.
