This single recall could now include up to 25% of the vehicles on US roads.

Does anyone know the source of Volt airbags? Or whether or not they contain ammonium nitrate with or without the drying agent? Thanks in advance.

NY Times has a tiered subscription policy. The first 10 articles each month are free.

EDIT: Found this relatively recent thread but it doesn't seem to clearly answer the question. http://gm-volt.com/forum/showthread.php?221706

EDIT: Some vehicles are more vulnerable than others. The new compound is less vulnerable. Older vehicles are more vulnerable. Cumulative heat and humidity increase the risk.
List of vehicles affected by Takata recall - Not clear whether or not this is the newly expanded list. If not it should be updated soon.
