The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is calling on all vehicle owners to check the list and get their air bags replaced immediately.

The most urgent recall is concentrated on those who live in hot humid regions, but there is  a need for all motorists to be aware of the dangers. In some cases the hot weather has caused the safety mechanism to blow pieces of metal when activated. Injuries from this have been reported.

Affected vehicles involve the Takata Airbags. The list is quite lengthy, to find out if your vehicle is affected by this latest recall or any other visit safercar.gov/vinlookup
