- New Tests Lead to Urgent Warning About Takata Airbags
July 5, 2016
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration conducted a new round of tests and found that Takata airbags are much more dangerous than previously thought. The NHTSA issued an urgent warning to owners of Honda and Acura vehicles model-year 2001-2003 warning them stop driving their cars and get the defective airbags replaced immediately.
The NHTSA found that Takata airbags can rupture in a car accident, spraying drivers and passengers with metal shrapnel and potentially causing injury or death. These airbags have been blamed for 11 deaths and hundreds of injuries.
Some of these airbags have almost a 50 percent chance of rupturing in an accident, according to U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx.
Nearly two-dozen carmakers have put Takata airbags in their cars. If you or a loved one drives one of these cars, you need to immediately stop and take it to the dealer to get the airbag replaced:
- 2003 Honda Pilot
- 2001-2002 Honda Civic
- 2002-2003 Acura TL
- 2003 Acura CL
- 2002 Honda CR-V
- 2002 Honda Odyssey
- 2001-2002 Honda Accord
Nearly 70 million Takata air bags could be under recall in the U.S. by 2019, making this the largest automotive recall in U.S. history.
Unfortunately, replacements for Takata airbags are in short supply. Some drivers are getting recall notices telling them they will have to wait weeks or months before the airbags can be fixed.

Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
Sophia H is very helpful.

Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
