Stellantis Says Half a Million Cars Included in Recall Over Airbag Risk

By Adria Calatayud

 

Stellantis said more than half a million cars of its DS and Citroen brands equipped with airbags made by Japanese auto-parts supplier Takata have been included in its latest recall campaign.

The European carmaker said late Wednesday that its current recall campaign affects 530,000 vehicles of the DS 3 and C3 models produced between 2009 and 2019 that had a specific Takata airbags for which risk was identified.

Stellantis said no risk was identified for other models with other components.

The news shows how the effects of the Takata airbag crisis, which began last decade and forced car companies to recall millions of vehicles, continue to affect the industry. Takata filed for bankruptcy in 2017 and automakers set aside billions to cover settlements and replacement costs.
