US agency confirms air bag safety probe into 30 million vehicles

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has opened an engineering analysis into an estimated 30 million U.S. vehicles from the 2001 through 2019 model years, Reuters first reported on Sunday, citing a document that had not been made public.

No immediate safety risk has been identified and drivers do not need to take action, the agency said.
