A notice to Virgin Islands vehicle owners from
Attorney General Claude Earl Walker on the recent
Takata settlement

On May 25, 2016, the Attorney General’s Office filed a complaint against TK Holdings and Takata Corporation in V.I. Superior Court asserting causes of action related to Takata airbags and seeking civil penalties. The Virgin Islands asserted claims that Takata engaged in unlawful practices in connection with the manufacturing, marketing and selling of its dangerous airbags installed in vehicles sold to Virgin Islands consumers.
Takata, which filed for bankruptcy last year, has agreed to pay the Virgin Islands approximately $1.5 million and a significant portion of these settlement proceeds will be used to give $200 each to 2,500 Virgin Islands consumers who own older vehicles equipped with Takata airbags.

Consumers must follow these four (4) steps to determine if they are eligible:

Finally, Ford and Mazda are advising owners of 2006 Rangers and B-Series trucks not to drive these vehicles, unless they are going to a dealer to have their Takata airbags replaced immediately.

I urge consumers to visit www.nhtsa.gov/equipment/takata-recall-spotlight or to contact their vehicle dealers to determine whether their airbags have been recalled. Consumers whose vehicles are under recall should make an appointment immediately with their dealers to get their Takata airbags replaced for free. If you have further questions or want more information, please visit www.dlca.vi.gov or http://www.doj.vi.gov/, or call (340) 774-5666.
