Tesla replaced faulty Takata Airbag in my Model S (and more!)

This is the correspondence I received from Tesla about my faulty Takata Airbag: Hi, Our records show that you are the owner of a Model S vehicle that has a faulty Takata airbag. That means your vehicle's airbag could kill or seriously injure you and other people in your vehicle from when it reaches six years after its year of manufacture. There is no immediate known risk with the airbag, but there will be in the future. Please contact Tesla to arrange for the airbag inflator to be replaced.
As it gets older, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can affect airbags with the fault. If you are involved in a collision, the airbag can go off with too much explosive force causing sharp metal fragments to shoot out and kill or seriously injure people in the vehicle. Tesla will replace the air bag in your vehicle free of charge. Replacement parts are available. 2 in 7 vehicles in Australia are affected by these faulty Takata airbags. However, the recalls do not affect any Tesla Model S vehicles produced after December 2016, nor do they affect any Tesla Roadster, Model X, or Model 3 vehicles. These models do not have the type of airbag inflator that is subject to recall.

I also asked about Dog Mode and Sentry mode!
