The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) urges owners of Pontiac Vibe vehicles with model years 2003 to 2005 to act immediately to replace defective Takata airbags. The faulty airbags are alleged to deploy improperly or with too much force, causing serious and sometimes fatal injuries. The airbags may also rupture, spraying metal shards at vehicle occupants.

More than 12 million vehicles worldwide are affected by the Takata airbag recall.
The Pontiac Vibe was a hatchback car developed by GM and Toyota and sold from 2002 to 2010. When GM filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2009, the automaker discontinued the Pontiac brand.
