Airbags

Blood on Airbag

Certain car companies are now beginning to settle cases requiring they replace those defective and dangerous Takata airbags. That should be a relief.

Unfortunately, it turns out that other car companies also used Takata-made airbags and have not issued a recall to replace them! Why have they delayed for so long?

Six car companies—BMW, Honda, Mazda, Nissan, Subaru, and Toyota—have agreed to settlements in a class action alleging that they used defective Takata airbags in their vehicles that, at deployment, could rupture and expel debris or shrapnel into the passenger compartment or otherwise improperly deploy, and that consumers sustained economic losses from this.
