What is a Takata airbag
With the recent string of recalls involving something called a Takata airbag, we thought it would be appropriate to cover some of the details, including what is a Takata airbag, in our blog. The Takata airbag is just a brand of airbag that is used in a number of vehicles all around the world.

If you did not get a notification but are unsure whether your vehicle was affected by the recall or not, you can give us a call or stop by today! Read the rest of this entry
