At this time, Takata believes that a number of the inflators identified above were provided to the following vehicle manufacturers for use in vehicles sold in the United States (the manufacturers are listed in alphabetical order): BMW, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Mazda, Nissan, and Toyota. If we determine that any of those inflators were sold to other vehicle manufacturers, we will let you know promptly.

Takata is not certain which models or model years of vehicles are equipped with the subject inflators, and it does not know how many of those vehicles were sold in or are registered in the States to be covered by the requested field actions. That information will need to be obtained from the affected vehicle manufacturers.

Takata wants to assure you that it will work with each manufacturer that agrees to conduct a field action to develop a schedule for that action, based on parts availability. In addition, Takata plans to continue its wide-ranging investigative efforts to better understand the causes of these inflator incidents, and it will keep ODI informed of the progress of those efforts.
If you or your staff have any questions, please contact the undersigned. I can be reached at (248) 340-7626 or by e-mail at mike.rains@takata.com.
