Editor's note: See a full updated list of affected vehicles below. This article has been updated with additional information.

In May, airbag maker Takata finally agreed to a nationwide recall of vehicles equipped with airbags that were manufactured with a faulty inflator that can cause the airbag to erupt with excessive force.

The number of impacted vehicles has grown to almost 34 million, spanning 10 auto manufacturers.

To date, eight confirmed deaths and about 130 reported injuries have resulted from Takata airbags deploying with too much force, causing metal shrapnel to fly into the faces of the driver or passenger. While the exact cause remains unknown, experts continue to believe that moisture and humidity play a role in causing the propellant to become unstable.

Following a lengthy series of Congressional hearings, Takata this week rejected one legislator's call to set up a victim compensation fund, similar to the one that General Motors established to deal with death and injury claims relating to a faulty ignition switch.

Since Takata's announcement, carmakers have been quickly churning out lists of affected makes and models. While the lists of impacted vehicles are still being released, consumers can find out if their vehicle is affected by this (or any other) recall by using the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) search tool on NHTSA's website or by contacting their auto manufacturer directly.
