  • A free smartphone app, Airbag Recall, is available for download, enabling owners to take a picture of a license plate to determine if their vehicle, or a family member or friend’s vehicle, is under recall.
  •  

    Dealerships in Ohio generally have replacement parts available, and the free recall repair should take about one to a few hours depending on vehicle make and model.

     

    “More than 17 million airbags recalled have not been repaired,” said Patrick Juneau of SafeAirbags.com. Juneau was appointed by a Federal court in Florida to administer an outreach program aimed at repairing these defective airbags. “Unfortunately, many consumers are not taking immediate action, either because they have been ignoring safety recall notices, or do not understand the severity of the situation.”
