Does Your Vehicle Have a Defective Airbag?

Despite its promise to have all of its airbags fixed, Takata has yet to complete this task. In fact, 24% of those recalled airbags have yet to be repaired. That means nearly 12 million vehicles are on the road with defective airbags.

The defects were traced to ammonium nitrate in the inflators that was supposed to burn off upon deployment. Instead, the chemical compound acted as an explosive, causing metal fragments to shoot out. This resulted in 25 deaths and approximately 300 injuries worldwide. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that “long-term exposure to high heat and humidity can cause these airbags to explode when deployed.” Takata denied the ammonium nitrate was the problem; instead, the company blamed the defects on errors in the manufacturing process at one of its plants.

Between May 2016 and December 2019, Takata repaired 37.5 million airbags. The recalls applied to vehicles with model years as far back as 2001. In an attempt to fix the problem, Takata added a drying agent to the new “desiccated” inflators, but experts said it would not work. In January 2020, Takata announced it was recalling 10 million desiccated inflators. Although the NTHSA announced in May 2020 it found nothing wrong with the new inflators, Volkswagen and General Motors announced recalls for possible defects.

If you receive a recall notice for your vehicle, have it serviced immediately. But if your car is too old, then don’t bother to get it fixed. Rather, sell your unwanted car to Gershow Recycling. Gershow will buy your vehicle, regardless of its age or condition. They are the experts when it comes to buying your Long Island junk car for cash.

They treat me well
I've sold two cars to gershow. The first time I called, they came the same day! Both transactions were smooth and both drivers were incredibly kind! I was surprised by their generous offers on both vehicles. Made a difficult decision so much easier for me. There is no other place on LI that I would ever consider selling a junk car to. Thank you, gershow!

Joe and his employees are top notch. Moved a load in for their new Shredding plant, it couldn’t have gone smoother. Larry assisted in unloading and was helpful. Thank you all
The process for having my vehicle picked up went very smoothly, from start to finish. Employees were kind and professional.
But I really came to post about the driver who came to pick up my vehicle, in hopes he will see this. His name is Kitt, and he was one of the kindest, and most compassionate human beings I’ve ever met. It was a very emotional decision for me to make to have my car taken, and circumstances out of my control made it unbearable. Kitt stepped in and did everything in his power to make sure that I was okay. He was respectful, very well mannered, and you can tell that he is a very loving person.
Thank you, Kitt, from the very bottom of my heart, for coming today.

Been doing business with Gershow for 17/18 years always been fair to me wouldn’t go anywhere else
I have been seeing different post about Mrs Anita Crypto Fx everywhere and a lot of traders keep on saying reach out to her, I eventually did and it turns out to be legit. I did an initial investment of $1000 and I received a surprised profit of $15,250 after 6days of trading, I followed her instructions with which i invested and within a week I got back my profit, I started seeing good results. Last week l made a successful withdrawal. Just stop worrying she will help you out. Thank you very much Mrs Anita. I would advise anyone seeing this post to contact her, I am responsible for the content I post here on Facebook, I am so serious about this you can inbox her directly via:
