This recall affects various models of Subaru, Tesla, BMW, Volkswagen, Daimler Vans, Mercedes and Ferrari.

Takata air bag inflators can potentially deploy hurling shrapnel into drivers and passengers, causing injury or death.

This year alone, about 10 million inflators are expected to be recalled.
