Over 30,000 vehicles have been searched on Carma, and drivers are finding deadly Takata airbags in cars, SUVs, and trucks from many different manufacturers. For now, we’re collaborating with Toyota to provide rewards for people who encourage their friends to find Takatas in eligible vehicles.
Carma visitors are still checking thousands of vehicles from other automakers, and we’re actively having conversations with some of these manufacturers. We hope to expand our rewards offerings to include even more eligible vehicles soon.

We looked up how many of these non-Toyota searches resulted in Takata recalls, and here’s what we found:

Mercedes-Benz and Subaru had the highest proportion of recalled vehicles for Takata airbags searched on Carma with 19% and 20% respectively.
BMW also made double digits at 15%.

Get Your Vehicle Fixed
Remember, no matter what brand of vehicle you own, it’s FREE to get your recalled Takata airbag fixed. Make it easy on yourself--ask about additional free services such as pickup/delivery or towing. You may even be able to get a loaner vehicle. The fix for replacing a Takata airbag does not take very long, and getting yours fixed could save the life of someone you love.
Check your vehicle on Carma and you’ll get a $5 reward, no matter what brand you search. And while this small reward is nice, the most important thing is that you’re helping keep your friends and family safe.
