Takata Conspiracy News: 35 Million US Cars Face Recall Owing To 11 Deaths Linked To Faulty Airbags
Takata Corporation faces another milestone of difficulties owing to the issues pertaining to safety and faulty airbags. It has been noted that 35 million cars face possible recall owing to 11 deaths linked to faulty airbags.
According to Hindustan Times, "Takata is preparing to recall at least another 35 million airbags in the US to address a defect linked to 11 fatalities, and the additional recalls by the Japanese auto parts supplier could be announced as soon as this week since some 50 million Takata airbags have been recalled globally, including roughly 28 million in the United States, to address a defect that can cause the airbag to explode, pummelling a driver or passenger with metal and plastic shrapnel."
However, despite the aims of the US regulators and officials to get to the bottom of the problem, the precise answer still eluded them. It is believed that the problem is more likely to surface in older cars and in climates where humidity is high. And last November, the NHTSA imposed a record of $200 million civil fine on Takata for providing inadequate and inaccurate information about its dangerously explosive safety devices installed in millions of cars, reports the same post.
Fortune also reports that "The expanded recall will be phased in over several years and more than double what is already the largest and most complex auto safety recall in U.S. history. The new recall will cover all frontal air bag inflators without a drying agent."
However, Takata also aims at gaining back the public's confidence and is in close collaboration with the other segments to ensure safety and prevention of lives lost owing to the faulty airbags.
To prove the latter, Takata spokesman Jared Levy declined to confirm the expansion but said the company is "working with regulators and our automaker customers to develop long-term, orderly solutions to these important safety issues."
