Takata airbags, which carry a risk of overpressurizing and exploding if the volatile ammonium nitrate inside is exposed to moisture and heat cycles over time, have so far been responsible for 23 driver deaths worldwide, with more expected. Seven of the fatalities occurred in Malaysia and all involved Honda’s 2003 to 2009 City model – the most recent in May 2018. Of the remaining 16 deaths, 15 were in the United States and one in Australia.
