Federal Safety regulators are warning owners of certain Hondas and Acuras to Immediately stop driving their cars until their Takata airbags are replaced.

Reason being that they have a 50% chance of exploding when deployed in an accident — compared to a 1% chance for other airbags.

Exploding Takata airbags have been tied to 10 deaths in the U.S., and eight of those were in cars that had the specific type of airbag that have been issued in this warning.

The models identified by NHTSA include: 2001-2002 Honda Civic, 2001-2002 Honda Accord, 2002-2003 Acura TL, 2002 Honda CR-V, 2002 Honda Odyssey, 2003 Acura CL, 2003 Honda Pilot.
