Be patient. Takata has cranked up production to 1 million airbags a month, which means it could be nearly three years just to get all the replacement parts out to dealers if each car only needed one airbag, although in many models, it's more. You'll have to decide if you feel safe driving your car until the airbags are fixed. The deaths and injuries from these defective airbags have happened in crashes where the bags deployed, not in accidental deployments. Since more than 70 percent of all accidents don't involve anything more damage to the vehicle, airbags don't go off in every accident. Hitting deer on two separate occasions didn't trigger the airbag in my Buick Roadmaster Wagon, and getting sideswiped by a speeding pick-up didn't set off the one in Mrs. Funny Money's Mercury, either.
