Defective airbags prompt 33.8M vehicle recall by Takata
Takata has issued what is believed to be the largest recall in U.S. history to fix defective airbags installed in 33.8 million U.S. cars, according to a report by RT.com on May 20.
The U.S. Department of Transportation stated that the Japanese airbag manufacturer has acknowledged the airbags’ risk of violent combustion, which may cause injuries and deaths to drivers and front-seat passengers. The agency also confirmed that the recent recall includes all the affected vehicles nationwide, not just those in region with higher humidity, as Takata previously determined.
The recall, which involves different car manufacturers, including Toyota Motor Corp., General Motor Co., Daimler AG, and Honda Motor Co., covers close to 14% of all vehicles in the country.
