It's worse than failure to deploy.

Airbags have exploded for no reason, sending shrapnel into the occupants face. The airbag does not only deploy, the plastic and metal frames are destroyed when it happens. Lacerations, loss of eyes, and death are probable results.
There has been at least 1 confirmed death.

It seems that it's happening more in humid climates.
There's talk of telling people in the wet southern states to not use the vehicles until fixed.

They recommend turning off the passenger side airbag, and putting a note on the dashboard. Lawyer fix, you think?

They will start sending airbags in stock up north to the south to start their repairs ASAP.

I'm not being alarmist here. I listened to a report on the situation this morning.

Keep checking the NHTSA website for updates and to see if any more vehicles are added,, over the next few weeks.

The NHTSA site is being inundated and may have problems.

Never cared for airbags. I always thought airbags were punishment for not wearing your seat belt. If you are properly strapped in you don't really need a front airbag. Airbags, like anti lock brakes cause as many problems as they solve. The money would be better spent on proper drivers education.

On ABC World news last night I saw an estimate of well over 7,000,000 million vehicles. Most of the major manufacturers are impacted by this recall, including ford, mazda, honda. What concerns me is we have had these time bombs in our vehicles for well over 10 years. Yet, the news is just now getting out. Many people wreck vehicles within a few days of purchase because they are not familiar with car. They are distracted trying to find the controls for the radio, heater, wipers and so on. How could someone have not noticed these airbags are not safe? We have people showing up in the ER looking like they were hit by shrapnel. The airbags themselves are being punctured by pieces of the canister. Last but not least, we have everyone from the federal government to consumer reports crash testing all these cars. By all indications we have a cover up of a massive scale. This makes me wonder if these safety ratings are worth the paper they are written on.

Insurance companies much like the rest of corporate America store data in such a manner that it can be sorted to discover anything about payouts and injuries to the occupants of a vehicle involved in a crash. How did the insurance companies not notice a higher injury rate when these defective airbags deployed?

So now FOOG is killing us, thats great news! Ive always been a suspect of air bags, Ive worn eye glasses since I was 6!

Question, WTF do eyeglasses become when hit by an airbag? Answer, Contact Lenses!

And now were driving by wire cars that one sunspot or bad crimp could scramble their brains like an asteroid, that should make us feel better. Ive not been slightly convinced over the last 40 years of vehicle innovation and enhancement that the product were buying today for 10 times the price of 1970 is any safer than the ones we bought that we could fix ourselves! The actual things they could have done to make them better (more accurate tooling) without putting us at risk would have been a real achievement but that wasnt flashy enough!

In 1970, if you had a light come on saying your vehicle needed attention, you pulled over or it died in place. Today, we get a dammit light for a cupholder that is in need of adjustment (how nice that you have to have a mechanic decode the light). The light should just blink $$$$.

Im pretty sure the next new car I buy is gonna be like a 1968 2 door Chevelle with a small V8 in it, maybe one painted Grandpa Green, painted stock steel rims (real spare tire), cloth bench seats. The only extra I want is Air conditioning. It will probably cost me almost as much as a new car but my guess is it wont be recalled and at least I can fix the damn thing without a Computer Terminal!
