[ARCHIVED] Free Repairs For Your Recalled Airbag

Check your vehicle's airbag status for free

The National Safety Council’s "Check to Protect" program highlights May as Airbag Recall Repair Month. During the month of May the Council is working to educate drivers and vehicle owners about critical airbag safety recalls. When exposed over time to heat and humidity, these recalled airbags transform from life-saving devices to life-threatening ones that could rupture and send shrapnel through the vehicle in the event of a crash. It’s urgent that every driver in South Florida check their vehicle VIN number to see if their airbag has been recalled. It is free to check and, if you find your vehicle's airbag is on the list, it is also free to have it repaired.  

Local car dealers from all automakers are offering free recall repairs, and many local Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram dealerships are offering extended hours, weekend hours, or gas cards to encourage vehicle owners to have their bags repaired. There are 37 million vehicles on the road that contain a recalled airbag that could cause serious injury or even death if involved in an accident. For more information, and to check your vehicle visit https://www.checktoprotect.org/
