The three largest German automakers are recalling 2.5 million vehicles in the U.S. and a long list of cars, SUV's, and vans equip with Takata airbags.

Over 850,000 vehicles recalled for VW and Audi and over 800,000 each for BMW and Daimler AG, maker of Mercedes Benz and Sprinter Vans.

This is the latest batch of safety recalls over faulty and in ten cases deadly airbags with exploding inflators.

Tens of millions of vehicles have been recalled worldwide since 2009, check your dealer.
