Sometimes it might be shorter and easier to just publish a list of the vehicles that haven’t been recalled today. While cars continue to be manufactured and sold with the potentially harmful ammonium nitrate airbags, 2.4 million more vehicles containing the problematic safety equipment have been recalled in the last two days.

Here are the recalled vehicles. Whether your airbag is slated for replacement depends on where you live, and automakers are using the state where your car was registered as a proxy for that. You can check whether your own vehicle is part of this or any other recall by typing your VIN in at NHTSA’s site.

Audi A4: 2004-2008

Audi A6: 2005-2008

Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, and Escalade EXT: 2007-2011

Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado 1500, Suburban, and Tahoes: 2007-2011

Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500: 2009-2011

Dodge Sprinter: 2009

Ford Edge: 2007-2010

Ford Fusion: 2006-2011

Ford Mustang: 2005-2011

Ford Ranger: 2007-2011

Jaguar XF: 2009-2011

Lincoln MKX: 2007-2010

Lincoln MKZ and Zephyr, Mercury Milan: 2006-2011

Freightliner Sprinter: 2009-2011 depending on the area where vehicle has been registered

GMC Sierra 1500, Yukon, and Yukon XL: 2007-2008 depending on the area where vehicle has been registered

GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500: 2009-11 depending on the area where vehicle has been registered

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter: 2010-2011 depending on the area where vehicle has been registered

Whether your own vehicle is part of the recall depends on the area of the country where you have registered your car, since degradation of the chemicals used to inflate the airbags is caused by heat and humidity. When wondering whether your car is affected, it’s most efficient to go to NHTSA’s page where you can look up your car by VIN and learn about your car’s individual recall profile, which may vary according to which parts it included and where you’ve registered the vehicle.
