    Segment Transcript

    People are still getting hurt from defective Takata airbags. Takata airbag manager for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Chris Freeman tell us how you need to check your car’s airbags to make sure they haven’t been recalled. Freeman:  "There is a website called CheckToProtect.org. This website works for any make and model of vehicle and it's completely free and collects no data. So the only thing the website does is allow users to search for a vehicle's recalled status either by using the vehicles identification number, that's the VIN that you can find on the top left side of the dash board or even more simply using your license plate, just type in your plate number, pick your state from the list and instantly a result will come back that tells you the recall status of your specific vehicle. It will either say you have no open recall at this time or it will say you have the following open recalls and it will list them with some key information." That website again is CheckToProtect.Org. With today's auto news, Laura Reynolds.
