Millions of Americans use their vehicles to get to work, drive home, or enjoy traveling our great nation. However, we do so at our own risk.

Vehicle accidents are serious things that all drivers need to be concerned about. However, a lot of people take comfort in knowing they have a safe vehicle that would hopefully use safety features to protect them in the event of a crash.

Sadly, another automotive recall is now hitting the market that is stripping people of that safety. Takata airbags have been recalled yet again. Apparently, they are exploding due to high temperatures.

"To help raise awareness, local Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep®, and Ram dealers are launching Airbag Recall Repair Month in September to encourage drivers of any brand of automobile to check for an airbag recall on their vehicle and schedule an appointment for repair," reported local news outlets.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are 1.7 million vehicles on the road in Texas with dangerous airbags included in the Takata recall. This does not even address the numerous other vehicles that could potentially be affected or be traveling to, or from, the state.

"Drivers of Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram vehicles can visit www.recalls.mopar.com to check for recalls and schedule an appointment with an authorized dealer. Drivers of any vehicle can check their vehicles for open Takata airbag recalls at www.CheckToProtect.org," according to reports.
