The Alliance for Automotive Innovation announced support for a new automaker-driven tool enabling anyone who handles aftermarket parts, businesses and associations to help identify recalled Takata airbags and work with dealers, and others, to identify and safely dispose of parts that cannot be re-sold under federal law.
The Website, FreePartCheck. com will be especially important as automakers continue working to prevent recalled and non-saleable airbags and components subject to the Takata recall from appearing in inventory at salvage yards or recycling facilities.
“Our members are committed to working to keep customers safe,” said Alliance for Automotive Innovation President and CEO John Bozzella. “This tool is designed to help prevent the purchase or resale of recalled Takata airbags and component parts that cannot legally be re-sold.”
“The efforts of automakers, including the creation of this new tool, help make it easier than ever to identify parts that need to be replaced. This, in turn, promotes the safety of our roadways,” added Bozzella.
