How Different Areas are Affected
The chemical compound (or "propellant") in the airbag may deteriorate over time. Temperature and humidity play a large role in how rapidly degradation occurs, as well as the age of the vehicle. Therefore, older vehicles and hotter, more humid areas are given higher priority in terms of when Takata airbag recall mailings are sent out.
- States in Zone A are given top priority - unsafe propellant degradation may occur between 6 - 9 years.
- States in Zone B are given second priority - unsafe propellant degradation may occur between 10 - 15 years.
- States in Zone C are given final priority - unsafe propellant degradation may occur between 15 - 20 years.
