KWWL-TV Cedar Rapids, IA reports that a new Carfax report shows that “nearly 650,000 vehicles on Iowa’s roads have unfixed safety recalls,” which they says is a 24 percent increase over 2016. Nationwide, Carfax says there are 63 million cars affected by recalls, a 34 percent jump over last year. “Common recalls include everything from exploding airbags to defective seatbelts.”
The report also shows that one in four cars in New York are under recall, which is a total of “more than 2.6 million cars, trucks and SUVs on the road,” WHEC-TV Rochester, reports. “The largest and possibly most dangerous” of these is the Takata airbag recall, which the National Highway Transportation Safety Association says “could eventually affect a quarter of all vehicles on the road.”
