  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Report: Takata Will Recall Another 35 Million Airbag Inflators

If you thought your car was safe from shrapnel-shooting airbags, it may not be after Takata adds at least 35 million more inflators to its recall campaign of defective front and side airbags.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Takata and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration may announce the expansion as early as this week. The actual number could be far higher, although since many cars have more than one Takata inflator under recall, it may not necessarily equate to 35 million more cars. Currently, there are more than 24 million cars from 24 brands under recall primarily for driver and passenger frontal airbags, along with a small fraction for side airbags, that can rupture upon deployment and cause the inflator’s metal casing to cut into a person’s face. A total of 11 people have died, including 10 in the U.S., and all but one have been in Honda vehicles.

A total of 28.8 million airbag inflators have been recalled in the U.S., and NHTSA estimates there are about 85 million using the problematic ammonium nitrate compound that have not been recalled. Earlier this week, Takata earmarked another $189 million to cover recall-related costs. The company had already booked $567 million in charges through its fiscal year ending March 31. Check back for more updates as we learn more.
