Companies continue to reveal their vehicles in need of new parts.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has released details about millions more vehicles that need passenger side Takata airbag inflator replacements.

Among the newly listed companies, General Motors will recall an estimated 1.9 million vehicles from its brands. Audi will fix 217,000, and there will also be 5,100 from Daimler Vans, 34,334 from Land Rover, 20,016 from Jaguar, and 91,806 from BMW. NHTSA also released information about campaigns from Mercedes-Benz and from Ford, but these companies had already publicly outlined their affected models.

In May, NHTSA requested that automakers replace 35 million to 40 million Takata airbag inflators in phases through 2019. These parts don’t contain a desiccant, which is a substance to absorb moisture. Long-term exposure to high heat and humidity can cause the ammonium-nitrate propellant in the components can ignite too quickly, which causes the ruptures. Not having a way to control the moisture in the inflator could make this problem worse, NHTSA believes.

In addition to these companies, eight other automakers announced on May 27 over 12 million vehicles in need of replacement passenger side inflators. The companies will perform the repairs in phases, which will prioritize the highest risk models.
