Settlement Structure: 
Case Summary: 

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.

This case does not take up the question of injuries sustained from deployments.

Subject vehicles include certain models between certain model years:

  • BMW, certain models, 2000-2017
  • Mazda, certain models, 2003-2015
  • Subaru, certain models, 2003-2017
  • Toyota, certain models, 2002-2017

The Honda and Nissan settlements have not yet received preliminary approval, so no notices or details are available yet.

For complete details, see the individual notices for BMW, Mazda, Subaru, and Toyota at the settlement website. Some vehicles may be recalled at a later date.
