A further 1.7 million vehicles from major manufacturers including Subaru, Tesla, BMW, Volkswagen, Audi, Daimler Vans, Mercedes-Benz, and Ferrari have been recalled because of the potentially deadly airbags.

The moves, announced Friday by the US government, are part of the largest series of automotive recalls in USA history.

Already, at least 23 people have been killed in accidents related to the airbags, as hundreds more have been injured. The last wave of recalls is expected to be announced early in 2020.

The airbag recalls, which began in 2001, are being phased in over time and managed by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Owners who want to check whether their auto is part of the campaign need to call their nearest dealer, or check the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)'s official website.
